MiSeNet: Mission-Oriented Wireless Sensor and Cyber-Physical System Networking

The Sixth IEEE Annual International Workshop on Mission-Oriented Wireless Sensor and Cyber-Physical System Networking (IEEE MiSeNet 2017)


IEEE INFOCOM 2017, Atlanta, GA, May 1-4, 2017
Call for Papers
IEEE MiSeNet 2017 provides a forum for participants from academia and industry to discuss topics in mission-oriented wireless sensor network (WSN) and cyber-physical systems (CPS) research and practice. It offers opportunities to understand the major technical and application challenges in WSN and CPS as well as exchange and discuss scientific and engineering ideas related to their architecture, protocol, algorithm, and application design. The workshop seeks papers that present novel theoretical and practical ideas as well as work in-progress before they have matured to warrant conference/journal publications. The topics of interest to IEEE MiSeNet 2017 include, but are not limited to, the following:
·         Theoretical foundations, modeling and analysis of mission-oriented WSNs
·         System design, implementation, and evaluation of mission-oriented WSNs
·         Medium access control and scheduling in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Software architectures for mission-oriented WSNs
·         Self-organization, self-configuration, and energy efficiency in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Topology control, coverage and connectivity issues in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Routing and data dissemination in mission-oriented WSNs
·         In-network data storage and processing in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Sensor database management in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Localization, detection and tracking in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Cryptography, privacy, robustness, security aspects of mission-oriented WSNs
·         Internet and cloud computing, cloud of Things in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Sensor-enabled robots and drones in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Wearable computing and human centricity in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Cyber-physical systems in mission-oriented WSNs
·         Theoretical foundations of Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Signal Processing for Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Mechanism Design for Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Control and Optimization of Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Data Mining and Analytics Applied to Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Game Theory Applied to Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Mobile and Cloud Computing for Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Security of Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Model-Based Design and Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems
·         Testbed design and real-world applications of mission-oriented WSNs

Paper Submission Instruction

IEEE MiSeNet 2017 Workshop will consider only original papers that are not currently under review by other workshops, conferences, or journals, and have not been published. All papers submitted to IEEE MiSeNet 2017 will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on their suitability (i.e., within the workshop scope), novelty, and merit. Submitted papers are limited to 6 pages. All submissions should be formatted in standard IEEE conference style for publication in the conference Proceedings. They must be single-spaced, double-column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space between columns, use at least a 10pt font, and be correctly formatted to be printed on Letter-sized (8.5" by 11") paper.

It is required that at least one author of each accepted paper register and attend the IEEE MiSeNet 2017 workshop to present their work to ensure its publication in the IEEE INFOCOM 2017 conference Proceedings. We strongly encourage people from both of the industry and academia to submit their fine work to IEEE MiSeNet 2017.

Thank you for submitting your paper to IEEE MiSeNet 2017!
