HotEMNETS 2010 - 6th Workshop on Hot Topics in Embedded Networked Sensors

10 January, 2010 - 11:13

The Sixth Workshop on Hot Topics in Embedded
Networked Sensors (HotEmNets 2010)
brings together wireless sensor
network researchers from academic and industrial backgrounds to present
groundbreaking results that will shed light on present and future
research challenges. The workshop emphasizes results from experiments
or deployments that quantify the challenges in the wireless sensor
systems of today as well as early results from new ideas that introduce
promising approaches that will define the challenges in the wireless
sensor systems of tomorrow. We especially welcome papers reporting on
results that refute common assumptions, deployment experiences, novel
and original approaches, and, more generally, papers that will help
inform and guide research.

HotEmNets 2010 will be
invitations only. Authors of accepted papers, TPC and SC members as
well as other distinguished members of the community will be invited to
enable a focused and productive discussion.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Validation/refutation of prior results
  • Applications beyond data collection
  • Application experiences: measurements, lessons learned
  • Future applications: requirements and challenges
  • Integration of sensor networks and IP networks
  • Hardware platforms, tradeoffs, and trends
  • Data and network storage
  • Delay-tolerant networking
  • Management, debugging, and troubleshooting
  • Network and software reliability
  • Network and system architectures
  • Software bug detection and tools
  • Energy sources, scavenging, and low-power operation
  • Human-Computer interfaces for sensor nets

Submission Guidelines:Papers should be submitted in Adobe PDF format.No longer than five pages in US letter or A4 paper sizeTwo column formatting.One-inch
margins on all sides. Minimum 10-point font size (smaller fonts are
acceptable for footnotes, references, and figure captions).
