Announcement: IPSN 2021 will be virtual

The COVID-19 pandemic has imposed unprecedented changes in our lives. After much consideration, we have taken the decision to organize IPSN 2021 in an entirely virtual format. Please, stay tuned for details.

The ACM/IEEE Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) 2021 conference welcomes exciting demonstrations of novel technologies, applications, and hardware as well as posters showing promising early work. We seek participation from both industry and academia for demonstrations and posters. The selection 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.

The demo and poster session is a great forum to share your early-stage work with a broader audience. 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 participate in the conference.

We welcome all topics that align with the IPSN conference topics of interest. More detailed information about this may be found here.

Posters

Poster abstracts should report on research work where at least some preliminary results are available, but they need not necessarily describe completed contributions. All poster abstract submissions must strictly adhere to the formatting guidelines specified below. Authors of accepted poster abstracts will be given a chance to present their work to the conference audience and engage in discussions with conference attendees. Authors of accepted posters will be invited to submit a 1 min teaser video of their work together with the camera-ready version of the abstract. The video will be available to the conference attendees during and after the conference.

Demos

Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well as the user experience of the demo, if available and can be arranged remotely. All demo abstract submissions must strictly adhere to the formatting guidelines specified below. The authors of accepted demos will be invited to submit two video files: a 1 min teaser and a 3-5 min more detailed demonstration together with the camera-ready version of the abstract. The video will be available to the conference attendees during and after the conference.

Submission and Formatting Instructions

Abstract submissions should be no more than 2 pages and must follow a double-column format. All figures, appendices, and references must fit within this limit. Reviewing is single-blind and submissions should list author names on the front page.

Papers must be typeset using the 2017 ACM Master article template. Detailed instructions are here. Please start with the sample-sigconf.tex example. Authors must not alter any of the formatting aspects defined in the template, such as layout, margins, or font sizes. In particular, authors must use the default 9-pt font size at the submission stage. These formatting guidelines apply regardless of those in the previous years. Failure to follow these guidelines, particularly the use of a different template or a font size, will lead to immediate rejection.

Your submission must be in PDF format with all fonts embedded and be formatted according to the official ACM format mentioned above. Submissions that do not meet the page limit, size, and formatting requirements will not be reviewed. Posters and demos are to be submitted at https://ipsn21-posters-demos.hotcrp.com/.

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 already for the initial abstract submission.
