IEEE SECON 2015 Workshops

IEEE SECON 2015 Call for Workshop Proposals
The 12th annual IEEE SECON conference will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in the field of sensing and communication in wireless networks. The focus of SECON is novel communication technologies, and emerging applications and services, involving mobile sensing and communication, cyber­physical systems, and ubiquitous and pervasive computing.
IEEE SECON 2015 will hold a full day of workshops on Monday (June 22nd) of the conference week in Seattle, Washington, co-located with the main conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide a forum for researchers to discuss early research results and share experiences related to a specific set of topics that is more focused than the general conference.  There were two workshops at IEEE SECON 2014, but additional high-quality workshops are welcome for this year.  Topics for workshops may include but not limited to:
• New technologies, e.g. UWB, RFID, NFC, visible light & underwater communication
• Novel smartphone-based sensing systems, tools, applications and experiences.
• Low power and energy limited sensing and communication
• Applications: cyber-physical systems, Internet of Things & ubiquitous computing
• Measurement of large-scale sensor systems, and novel experimental test-beds
• Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile, wireless and sensor systems
The workshops should target the March-April timeframe for paper submissions with acceptance notifications approximately one month later, and the camera-ready versions due by May 1, 2015.
Please include the following information about the proposed workshop:
1.     A draft call for papers (as complete as possible), which should include:
a.      Motivation and rationale for the workshop
b.     Names and affiliations of main organizers
c.      Tentative composition of the committees

d.     The workshop deadlines (internal and external)
2.     Contribution format (short papers, long papers, demos, panels...)

3.     Expected number of submissions and participants

4.     Prior history of this workshop, if any (including # submissions, # accepted papers and # attendees)
The workshop organizers should send their workshop proposals to the workshop co-chairs listed below by December 31, 2014.
Notification of workshop acceptance will be on January 15, 2015.
