Description

The use of sensors is familiar to citizens as they are incorporated in many devices including smartphones, vehicles, appliances, smartwatches, among others. The use of sensor networks is spreading faster everyday, and some examples are their application in agriculture, health, energy, environment, industry, smart cities, etc. These sensors are usually part of a set of sensors, which are interconnected with each other, and usually with a coordinating (sink)  node. Depending on the application and the types of sensors that interact or from which information is collected, the links will be established using different standards depending on requirements: range, bandwidth, power consumption, etc.. Due to its configuration flexibility and lower deployment cost, wireless sensor networks have become the most popular. Nevertheless, several issues and challenges must be faced by engineers to guarantee the highest QoS, as security, channel reliability, battery life, interoperability with other networks, etc. Sensor networks performance rely on several impacting factors which must be investigated: network architecture, operating system, hardware implementation, radio interface, protocols, sensors technology, which must be optimized to achieve the highest availability, reliability, throughput and power saving. In these networks, each node may be equipped with a variety of sensors, such as acoustic, seismic, infrared, motion, biomedical and chemical sensors with higher level of information inference associated with identification, embedded signal processing and networking of the data.

Submission Instructions

Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics.
Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors, including the authors’ personal details, the acknowledgements section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the authors’ identity.

Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.

All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates provided in the documents here, which are also the templates for the camera-ready submission. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
