IPSN '16 Call for Demos and Posters

The 15th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2016) draws upon many disciplines including networking, signal and image processing, information and coding theory, databases, information management, distributed algorithms, embedded systems, wireless communications, and machine learning. In addition to full-length technical papers, IPSN welcomes exciting demonstrations of novel sensor network technology, applications, and hardware as well as posters showing promising early work. IPSN seeks participation from both industry and academia for demonstrations and posters.

Selection of demonstration and posters will be based on a short abstract, evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as the potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. Accepted abstracts will appear in the regular conference proceedings. At least one author of every accepted demonstration or poster abstract is required to register and attend the conference.


Poster abstracts should report on research work where at least some preliminary results are available, but they need not necessarily describe completed work. An easel will be provided for all posters. If you have any questions, please contact the poster co-chairs: Lu Su (SUNY Buffalo) and Tian He (University of Minnesota)


Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well as the user experience of the demo. Tables, power, and wireless connectivity will be provided. If a demo requires additional special arrangements, please describe them clearly in your submission using a separate third page (not part of the technical content of the abstract). The authors of the accepted demos will be invited to submit an optional short video together with the camera-ready version of the abstract. The videos will be linked from the conference program on the IPSN 2015 home page. If you have any questions, please contact the demo co-chairs: Xiaofan (Fred) Jiang (Columbia University) and Thiemo Voigt (Uppsala University and SICS, Sweden).

Formatting Guideline

Poster and demonstration abstracts should be submitted as PDF files and be formatted using ACM SIG Proceedings Tighter Alternate Style.

Poster and demonstration abstracts are at most 2 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Poster abstracts should follow the same format but should include a thumbnail of the planned poster as a third page. If a demonstration requires special arrangements, please describe them clearly in your submission using a separate third page. (This third page is not part of the technical content of the abstract and can be formatted at discretion of the authors).

Abstracts need not be anonymous. Please make sure you use the latest version of the templates to prepare your submissions. Due to the short interval between the notification of acceptance and the camera-ready deadline, we strongly encourage authors to follow the camera-ready formatting guidelines as close as possible even for the initial abstract submission.
