Call for Papers

Algosensors 2012

International Symposium on Algorithms for Sensor Systems, Wireless Ad Hoc Networks and Autonomous Mobile Entities
13-14 September 2012, Ljubljana, Slovenia Theme

The ALGOSENSORS workshop series aims to bring together research contributions related to diverse algorithmic and complexity theoretic aspects of wireless sensor networks. Starting with ALGOSENSORS 2010, we also strongly encourage submissions about related types of networks such as ad hoc wireless networks, mobile networks, radio networks and distributed systems of robots.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Wireless Network ModelsVirtual Infrastructures
Ad-hoc Deployment/Topology ControlInfrastructure Discovery
Data Propagation and RoutingData Aggregation/Data Compression
Error and Erasure Correcting CodesPower Saving Schemes
Energy ManagementResource-efficient Distributed Computing
Communication ProtocolsMedium Access Control
Fault Tolerance and DependabilitySelf-stabilization
Adaptiveness and Self-organizationSwarm Computing
Game Theoretic AspectsCryptography, Security and Trust
Time SynchronizationMobile Robotic Systems
Algorithms for RFIDObstacle Avoidance
Invited speakers Subhash Suri, UCSB Thomas Kesselheim, TU Aachen

Submission guidelines are available in the conference web page.
Authors are invited to submit their work in one of the three
acceptable formats: novel research contributions, position papers, and
surveys. Original research papers must contain results that have not
previously appeared and have not been concurrently submitted to a
journal or conference with published proceedings. In all cases, any
partial overlap with any published or concurrently submitted paper
must be clearly indicated. Authors need to ensure that for each 
accepted paper at least one author will attend the symposium.
Submissions are limited to 12 single-column pages on letter/A4-size
paper (using at least 11 point font, 1 inch margins, standard line
spacing). This includes figures, but excludes references and an
optional appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion).
Since 2011, ALGOSENSORS has two tracks:
  • Track A: Sensor Networks
  • Track B: Ad hoc Wireless and Mobile Systems 
Submissions should be directed to the most appropriate track. The Program
Committee reserves the right to move papers between Tracks in order to ensure a fair evaluation.
As in previous years, the proceedings of Algosensors 2012 will be published by
Springer-Verlag as a volume of the
LNCS series. Information for LNCS Authors can found here.

Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
