IEEE SECON 2005 Call for Papers

Building on the success of last year's inaugural conference, this new IEEE Communications Society conference will provide a forum to exchange ideas, techniques, and applications, discuss best practices, raise awareness and share experiences among researchers, practitioners, standard developers and policy makers in the field of sensor and ad hoc networks and systems. The conference will be organized to provide for a degree of collegiality and continuity in the discussions of the various topics among participants from the industrial, governmental and academic sectors.

Original technical papers that address the communications, networking, systems and algorithmic aspects of ad hoc and sensor networks, as well as those that describe practical deployment and implementation experiences, are solicited for presentation at the conference and publication in the conference proceedings. Papers presenting novel contributions in such disciplines as communications, networking protocols and architectures, algorithms, embedded systems, middleware and information management, and novel applications are solicited.


Full papers describing original, previously unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical experiences, and industrial and commercial developments in sensor and ad hoc communications and networks. Papers with a deep focus on a specific discipline or stimulated by the synergistic interaction of diverse disciplines are encouraged.

Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


Proposals for tutorials and panels on current topics in the field of ad hoc and sensor networking and applications are solicited. Panels related to the commercial application and development of sensors and ad hoc networks are especially encouraged.


Demonstrations that showcases the practical implementations, industrial and commercial developments, and new applications for ad hoc and sensor networks are solicited.


All paper submissions will be handled electronically through the EDAS system. Details regarding the paper format and the submission process are available.
