The 12th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN 2015) will be held in Porto, Portugal on 9-11 February 2015.
EWSN is a highly selective single-track international conference focused on publishing premier research results pertaining to networked sensing, broadly defined.
The organizers of EWSN 2015, the twelfth meeting in this series, are pleased to announce an updated scope that combines the traditional focus of this conference with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked sensing. These new and emerging directions include (i) study of networked sensing in the broader context of larger cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things architectures, (ii) investigation of mobile and human-centric sensing, (iii) exploration of large-scale data and information processing challenges.
* Extended Scope
EWSN 2015 will feature an updated scope, combining the traditional focus of this
conference with emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked sensing.
* Updated Topics on Emerging Directions
In line with the extended scope, we are soliciting contributions to new and emerging
directions, such as: Human-centric sensing (e.g. crowd-sourcing/crowd-sensing, mobile
sensing) or big (sensor) data challenges (e.g. large-scale information processing,
analysis of sensor data).
* New Additional Paper Format
EWSN 2015 will introduce a smaller paper format for validated early ideas that can be
described by a more concise contribution. Therefore, we solicit two types of original
submissions for oral presentation: full papers (16-pages) and short papers (8 pages).
Topics of Interest
EWSN 2015 welcomes contributions describing original ideas, promising new concepts,
and practical experiences (experimental validation, rebuttal, and/or comparison of
existing approaches) that fall broadly in the following topics:

-Internet of Things
-Cooperative object architectures
-Novel uses of sensor data, including healthcare, body area networks, vehicular applications, and smart buildings
-Localization and tracking services
-Security and fault tolerance
-Sensor network middleware
-Models, systems, and experiences with humans as sensors
* Human-centric sensing:
-Smart phone sensing applications
-Opportunistic, participatory, and social sensing
* Big (sensor) data challenges:
-Large-scale information processing, learning, mining, and analysis of sensor data
-Challenges in sensor data stream processing
-Networked data fusion challenges
-Prototypes, testbeds, field experiments
