The International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) is a leading, single-track, annual forum on sensor network research. IPSN brings together researchers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss recent advances in both theoretical and experimental research. Its scope includes 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.

The conference features two interleaved tracks, the Information Processing (IP) track, and the Sensor Platforms, Tools and Design Methods (SPOTS) track. The two tracks have separate program committees to evaluate their submissions. Authors should carefully review the intended foci of these two tracks to decide which track is better suited for their work, and they are encouraged to contact program chairs with questions or clarifications.

The Information Processing (IP) track focuses on algorithms, theory, and systems for information processing using networks of embedded sensors. Topics covered in this track include, but are not limited  to:

 - Applications and deployment experiences
 - Coding, compression and information theory
 - Data processing, storage and management
 - Detection, classification, and tracking
 - Distributed algorithms and reasoning
 - Distributed and collaborative signal processing
 - Fault tolerance and identification
 - Fundamental bounds and formulations
 - Location, time, and other network services
 - Security
 - Sensor tasking, control, and actuation
 - Network health monitoring and management
 - Network protocols
 - Simulation
 - Programming models and languages
 - Operating systems and runtime environments

The Sensor Platforms, Tools, and Design Methods (SPOTS) track focuses on new hardware and software architectures, modeling, evaluation, deployment experiences, design methods, implementations, and tools for networked embedded sensor systems.  Submissions are expected to refer to specific hardware, software, and implementations.  Results focused on the analysis and processing aspects of data collected from deployments should be submitted to the IP track, while details on the hardware and software platforms and tools used in the deployment should be submitted to SPOTS. Topics covered in the SPOTS track include, but are not limited to:

 - Novel sensor network components, device platforms and architectures
 - Embedded software for sensor networks
 - Design tools and methodologies for sensor networks
 - System modeling, simulation, measurements, and analysis
 - Case studies that describe experiences, highlight challenges, and  study/compare the performance of platforms and tools
