SECON 2020 - 17th annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication and Networking

Date2020-06-22 - 2020-06-25


VenueComo, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

The 17th annual IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication and
Networking (SECON) will provide a unique forum to exchange innovative
research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and
practitioners in wireless and mobile communication networks. The conference
aims to serve as the reference exhibit for state-of-the-art research
supported by implementation and insights gained on all scales of
experimental systems, network architectures, components, and protocols.
Looking beyond current sensing, communication, and networking paradigms,
IEEE SECON continues to emphasize pioneering cross-disciplinary work as its
signature footprint in the contemporary research landscape. Towards that
end, SECON encourages work that falls at the intersection of traditional
sensing/networking and new disciplinary areas including (but not limited
to) machine intelligence, data analytics, distributed computing, social
networks, physics, biology, and new devices, to name a few, encompassing
topics ranging from biological communication and computing networks to
uncharted wireless bands, edge intelligence, and social media data
Papers describing original, previously unpublished research, experimental
efforts, practical experiences, as well as visionary roadmaps, in all
aspects of sensor networks, Internet of Things, mobile devices, and
wireless communication are solicited. Particular topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
*Wireless and mobile sensing systems in challenging media (e.g.,
underground, underwater, space)
*Internet of Things, Nano-Things and Bio-Nano-Things
*New communication paradigms, such as Terahertz communications and o
ptical wireless communications
*Machine intelligence for sensing, communication, and/or networking
*In-network processing/fog/edge computing in wireless networks
*Intra-body networks and molecular communication networks
*Unmanned aerial systems; robotic wireless networks
*Wearable computing and networking
*Social media exploitation for sensing and dissemination
*Cellular communications and data networks, including 5G and beyond
*Next-generation applications enabled via wireless, such as
virtual/augmented reality, autonomous driving, smart cities
*Low-power and energy limited sensing and communications
*Measurement of wireless and sensor systems, and novel experimental
*Software-defined and programmable networks
*Cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access
*Security, privacy, and trustworthiness of mobile, wireless and
sensor systems
*Survivability and fault tolerance in disaster scenarios
*Application protocols and cross-layer design
*Testing platforms for city-scale evaluation of new sensing systems
Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor be currently under
review at another venue. All papers for IEEE SECON 2020 must be submitted
via the conference submission page. Each submission must be no longer than
9 pages and in font size no smaller than 10 points. Submissions that
violate the formatting guidelines will be rejected without review. Further
instructions on the expected format for submissions will be communicated
All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance
through *double-blind* reviewing, where the identities of the authors are
withheld from the reviewers. As an author, you are required to preserve the
anonymity of your submission, while at the same time allowing the reader to
fully grasp the context of related past work, including your own. Papers
that do not conform to our double-blind submission policies will be
rejected without review. ArXiv draft submissions are allowed and reviewers
will be encouraged not to actively search papers for deanonymization
To be published in the IEEE SECON 2020 conference proceedings and to be
eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, one author of each accepted paper
is required to register for the conference at the full (member or
non-member) rate. The paper must be presented by an author of that paper at
the conference, unless the TPC co-chairs grant permission for a substitute
presenter arranged in advance. The designated presenter should be qualified
to both present the paper and answer questions. Non-refundable registration
fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted,
publication-ready version of the paper. Only IEEE Xplore®-compliant papers
received by the camera-ready deadline can appear in the proceedings. For
authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for
up to 3 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE
SECON 2020 conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as
other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
The organizers of IEEE SECON 2020 as well as our attendees expect accepted
papers to be presented at the conference. IEEE reserves the right to
exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from
IEEE Xplore®) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

IEEE SECON 2020 will take place at the Teatro Sociale in Como, Italy. The
theatre is one of the neo-classic gems in Northern Italy and
internationally renowned for its artistically unique façades and interiors.
Como is widely known for its beautiful lake, within walking distance from
the venue, and dramatic scenery set against the foothills of the Alps. The
city is also home to Renaissance architecture and offers numerous
attractions, including a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of
General Chairs:

Gian Pietro Picco (University of Trento, Italy)
Program Committee Chairs:
Tarek Abdelzaher (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA)
Sung-Ju Lee (KAIST, Korea)
Cecilia Mascolo (University of Cambridge, UK)
