IPSN 2014 Issues Call for Demos and Posters

November 13, 2013

Nov. 13 — The 13th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2014) 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.

Demonstration abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length, and submitted in PDF format by following the IPSN regular-paper formatting guidelines.  Abstracts need not be anonymous. Please refer to the IPSN regular-paper submission instructions for additional details. Poster abstracts should follow the same format but should include a thumbnail of the planned poster as a third 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 close as possible even for the initial abstract submission.

Important Dates: 

  • Poster and demo submission deadline: January 24, 2014 (11.59 PM, US PDT)
  • Notification of acceptance: February 2, 2014
  • Camera-ready abstracts due: February 7, 2014

 Demos:

 

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 2014 home page.  If you have any questions, please contact the demo co-chairs: Vlado Handziski (handziski@tkn.tu-berlin.de) and Roozbeh Jafari (rjafari@utdallas.edu).

Posters:

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: Tommaso Melodia (tmelodia@eng.buffalo.edu) and Andreas Willig (andreas.willig@canterbury.ac.nz).

PhD Forum:

IPSN 2014 – the 13th ACM/IEEE Int. Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Network (co-located with CPSWEEK 2014) – will host a PhD Forum on Sensor Network Research. The Forum will provide an opportunity for PhD students to present their dissertation research, including work in progress, to the sensor network community and obtain individual feedback from leading researchers in the field. The Forum will be structured as a series of short presentations by the students, followed by individual discussions, feedback, and advise. Participating students will also have the opportunity to present a poster during the main conference to leverage further interaction with CPSWEEK attendees.

Current PhD students in the early stages of their career are encouraged to submit a 2-page extended abstract about their dissertation research in sensor networking to be considered for the PhD Forum. The abstract shall also include a one-paragraph bio of the student, along with information on how long he/she has been in PhD school and the expected time until graduation. The student should be the sole author, although contributions of the advisor and others should be acknowledged. Submissions will be reviewed by the PhD Forum committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the Forum. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in person to the Forum and to present a poster both at the Forum and at the main conference.

Location:

The PhD Forum is part of  IPSN 2014. Details about the location and the rooms will be announced in due time.

Submissions:

Submissions must be received no later than submission deadline via the EasyChair submission site. Topic scope is the same as that listed in the IPSN call for papers. Submissions must be in PDF format, be written in English, of no more than two pages in length (all inclusive), and adhere to the IPSN formatting guidelines. The abstract should include the author’s name, affiliation, and email address.

For any questions, please contact the PhD Forum chair.

Important Dates:

(all at 11:59pm PST)

  • Submission Deadline: January 24, 2014
  • Notification of Acceptance: February 21, 2014
  • PhD Forum: April 13, 2014

PhD Forum Organizers: 

  • Falko Dressler (chair) – University of Innsbruck
  • James Gross (KTH)
  • Kay Roemer (University of Graz)
  • Luca Mottola (Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and SICS Swedish ICT)
  • Ozgur B. Akan (Koc University)
  • Yingying (Jennifer) Chen (Stevens Institute of Technology)

Is Liquid Cooling Ready to Go Mainstream?

February 13, 2017

Lost in the frenzy of SC16 was a substantial rise in the number of vendors showing server oriented liquid cooling technologies. Three decades ago liquid cooling was pretty much the exclusive realm of the Cray-2 and IBM mainframe class products. That’s changing. We are now seeing an emergence of x86 class server products with exotic plumbing technology ranging from Direct-to-Chip to servers and storage completely immersed in a dielectric fluid. Read more…

BioTeam’s Berman Charts 2017 HPC Trends in Life Sciences

January 4, 2017

Twenty years ago high performance computing was nearly absent from life sciences. Today it’s used throughout life sciences and biomedical research. Genomics and the data deluge from modern lab instruments are the main drivers, but so is the longer-term desire to perform predictive simulation in support of Precision Medicine (PM). There’s even a specialized life sciences supercomputer, ‘Anton’ from D.E. Shaw Research, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is standing up its second Anton 2 and actively soliciting project proposals. There’s a lot going on. Read more…
