The  International Conferences on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference focussing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking  – an area of highest relevance for visionary technologies such as the Internet of Things or Cyber-Physical Systems and application domains such as Smart Production, Smart Cities, or Connected Cars.

The featured topic of the 2016 edition of EWSN is “Dependability” and we specifically welcome contributions that aim at making networked embedded systems more reliable, predictable, safe, and secure in order to enable critical applications that require guaranteed performance. Topics not related to dependability are equally welcome as long as they fall into the scope of the conference (i.e., wireless networked embedded systems).

The conference solicits both full technical papers, and short papers describing validated early ideas.

EWSN 2016 will be held in cooperation with ACM/SIGBED. The proceedings will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

Topics of Interest

EWSN 2016 welcomes contributions describing original ideas, promising new concepts, and practical experiences (experimental validation, rebuttal, and/or comparison of existing approaches) in all relevant areas of networked embedded systems such as Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, or Wireless Sensor Networks and their applications such as Smart Cities, Smart Factories, Smart Cars, or Smart Health. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Dependability (real-time, reliability, availability, safety, security)
  • Embedded wireless networking from physical to application layer
  • Wireless embedded computing platforms
  • Operating systems, middleware, and services
  • Programming paradigms, languages, and tools
  • Distributed and embedded computing for networked systems
  • Applications, deployment, management, and debugging
  • Sensing and actuation
  • Mobility, localization, tracking
  • Embedded data management and processing
  • Interaction with humans

Please ask the program chairs if you are uncertain if your topic fits. 

Submission Instructions

This highly selective conference will only accept for review original papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review by any other conference or journal. We will adopt a double-blind review process, where the names of authors and their affiliations are unknown to reviewers until the end of the review process. We will also provide authors the possibility of a rebuttal before final decisions about acceptance are made.

Formatting requirements. Accepted submissions will appear in the ACM digital library. Full paper submissions must have at least 8 and at most 12 pages. Short paper submissions must have at least 4 and at most 6 pages.

Pages must have 8.5" x 11" (letter) two-column format, using 10-point type on 11-point leading, with a maximum text block of 7" wide x 9" deep with an intercolumn spacing of .25". The page limits include figures, tables, and references. Authors may use the LaTeX templates provided here

Authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions such that the author identities are not disclosed to the reviewers. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements may not be reviewed.

Submission system. Full and short papers must be registered through the conference management system by the paper registration deadline (i.e., paper title abstract, authors have to be entered). Full and short papers must be submitted through the same system by the paper submission deadline (i.e., PDF must be uploaded).
