IEEE SECON 2007 The Fourth IEEE International Conference on Sensors, Mesh and Ad Hoc Communications and Networks

Merged with IEEE International Workshop on Wireless Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks (IWWAN)

Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (
Corporate Patrons: NOKIA, France Telecom, Motorola, Cal(IT)2 and Coronis Systems
June  18-21, 2007
San Diego, California, USA

To provide a forum for discussion and personal interaction between
presenter and participants, IEEE SECON 2007 will include poster and
demonstration sessions: works in progress, industry demonstrations of
new applications and techniques, practical implementations, military,
industrial and commercial developments, research testbeds and
demonstrations, recent research/implementation results, upcoming
research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the
fields of sensor, mesh and ad hoc communications and networks. One of
the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between
industry, government agencies and academia.  Hence, participation of
researchers/developers from industry or governement agencies and
posters/demonstrations reporting joint work are especially encouraged.

Topics considered for posters and demo include but are not limited

    * New    architectures   and   protocols    to   support
      communication,   localization,  time  synchronization,
      routing,  data  dissemination,  and other  distributed
      services  in  heterogeneous, large-scale  distributed,
      mesh networks and sensor networks

    * Novel   algorithms   and   theories  for   management,
      supervisory control, and  monitoring of distributed ad
      hoc  networks, and  techniques for  the interpretation
      and use of sensor data in decision-making processes

    * Modeling  and  performance  evaluation of  large-scale
      distributed  ad  hoc  and sensor  networks,  practical
      implementations   and   deployments,  and   real-world

    * Theories  and models  on  fundamental information  and
      communication  aspects  of  wireless mesh  and  sensor

    * Mechanisms for authenticated, secure communication and
      data dissemination in sensor and mesh networks

    * Algorithms and protocols to support quality of service
      in  mesh  and  sensor  networks,  including  admission
      control,   resource  allocation   and   fairness,  and
      capacity planning

    * Integration   of  sensors  into   engineered  systems,
      including  novel  techniques  for on-sensor  renewable
      power     sources,     mechanisms    for     on-sensor
      self-calibration   and  self-testing,   and  efficient
      schemes to maximize accuracy and minimize false alarms

    * Hardware  platforms  incorporating  multiple  sensors,
      computation, actuation, and wireless interfaces

    * Software platforms, middleware, and tools for mesh and
      sensor  network applications  development, deployment,
      and management

Submissions should be in the form of an abstract describing the main
contributions of the poster/demo.  If available, preliminary results
can also be included.  Abstracts will be evaluated mainly based on
their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of
ideas and promote collaborations.  Accepted abstracts will be
published in IEEE Xplore.

Up to three best posters will be given the opportunity to be presented
at the main conference.  There will also be a best demo award and
a best poster award judged by a panel of academic and/or venture
capital participants.

Submissions should not be more than three pages (preferably IEEE
conference format, 2-column) in length. Demonstration submissions
should include the space requirements and/or any other
equipment-specific requirements.  The documents must contain the
authors' names, affiliations, and contact information and the
designated corresponding author.

Accepted authors of posters/demos will have a space in the poster/demo
session room to display their posters or exhibit their demos and
describe their work in discussions with interested attendees.

IEEE Communications Society policy states that all accepted SECON 2007
posters/demos must have at least one registration at the regular
rate. For authors co-authoring multiple posters/demos, one regular
registration is valid for up to three presentations.  In addition,
there needs to be at least one person per poster/demo registered for
one day by 6/4/2007 in order for the abstract to appear in IEEE Xplore.

Submission will be accepted until 3/29/2007, 5 pm EDT for
demos and for posters. Please send the submission material to the
poster/demo chairs in pdf format, and make sure to include the first
author name and either POSTER or DEMO in the name of the pdf file:
