The 17th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2018) is a leading annual forum on research in networked sensing, information processing, and control, broadly defined. 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, collaborative objects, the Internet of Things, machine learning, mobile and social sensing, and embedded systems design. Of special interest are contributions at the confluence of multiple of these areas.

Selection of demonstration and posters will be based on a short abstract, evaluated in terms of technical merit, innovation, and the potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. Accepted abstracts will be published on IEEE Xplore as part of the main conference proceedings. At least one author of every accepted demonstration or poster abstract is required to register and attend the conference. The authors of accepted posters and demos will participate in a one-minute madness session to introduce their research to the IPSN audience in 60 seconds. The best poster and demo will receive an award.


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. Posters should measure 36" high x 48" wide. If you have any questions, please contact the poster co-chairs: Marco Zimmerling (TU Dresden) and Juhi Ranjan (IIID).


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 2018 home page. If you have any questions, please contact the demo co-chairs: Kai Li (CISTER) and Olga Saukh (TU Graz / CSH Vienna).

Submission Guidelines

Poster and demonstration abstracts should be submitted as PDF files and be formatted using the standard IEEE templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at: ( please download template here). Poster and demonstration abstracts are at most 2 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Poster abstracts should also include a thumbnail of the planned poster as a third page, which will be considered in the selection process. Demonstration abstracts should clearly describe special arrangements required for the actual demo as a third page (see above). Poster and demonstration abstracts need not be anonymous, so please include name, affiliation, and contact information of all authors on the first page. 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 closely as possible even for the initial abstract submission.
