3rd Workshop on Ultra-Low Power Sensor Networks (WUPS 2013)
Date : 20th February  2013
Location : Prague (Hotel DAP).

Website: http://wups2013.irisa.fr/

The workshop will be held in conjunction with ARCS (Architecture of Computing Systems) on Wednesday, 20 February, 2013 at Hotel DAP, Vítězné nám. 684/4, 160 00 Prague, Czech Republic.

Description

Ultra-low power sensor networks have gained importance these last few years due to a vast set of applications e.g. in automotive systems, in smart buildings and health-care monitoring. Sensor networks often need to operate autonomously without wired connection for long periods of time. To allow long maintenance cycles, two main strategies are common: Firstly, they should be able to operate on a long-lived battery or other means of energy sources, e.g. energy harvesting strategies. Secondly, ultra-low power approaches are used to consume as little energy as possible. The workshop is intended to give a good overview of current work in this area and problems and solutions in specific industry use cases.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Design methodologies for ultra-low power embedded systems
  • Power consumption estimation techniques
  • Energy harvesting: technologies and models
  • Simulation frameworks for wireless sensor networks
  • Power manager
  • Wake-up radio technologies
  • Low-power radio front ends
  • Energy-efficient communication protocols
  • Cross layer techniques
  • Applications of ultra-low power sensor networks: building automation, smart homes, smart cities, etc.

Industry submissions showing current state of the art are especially welcome.

Paper length should be between 4 and 6 pages. Papers must be submitted using the upload system at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wups2013

For ARCS 2013 participants the workshop is included in the conference fee; for participation in the workshop alone, there will be a reduced fee.

Important dates

  • Paper submission deadline: 10.12.2012
  • Acceptance notification: 11.01.2013
  • Camera-ready deadline: 18.01.2013
