The 8th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks

April 13-16, 2009, San Francisco, USA



IPSN 2009 will be co-located in San Francisco, CA, USA, with the 15th IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS'09) and the International Conference on Hybrid Systems (HSCC'09) as part of the second series of Cyber-Physical Systems Week (CPSWEEK) during April 13-16, 2009.

The International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) is a leading, single-track, annual forum that brings together researchers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss recent advances in sensor network research and applications. The conference covers both theoretical and experimental research, as it pertains to sensor networks, in a broad range of disciplines including signal and image processing, information and coding theory, databases and information management, distributed algorithms, networks and protocols, wireless communications, machine learning, and embedded systems design.

This year one workshop on current emerging topics in sensor networks will be held in conjunction with IPSN:
