The 16th Annual International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2020)
Los Angeles, California, USA
May 25 - 27, 2020

DCOSS 2020 is the 16th International Conference on Distributed Computing
in Sensor Systems to be hosted in Los Angeles, California, USA, in June
25-27, 2020. In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant
growth in the use of IoT and distributed sensor systems in a number of
application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings,
to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring. In
order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we
need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight
integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient
networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable
autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security,
privacy and trust. DCOSS focuses on issues arising in the entire IoT and
networked sensor systems stack: covering aspects of high-level
abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and applications,
system design approaches and architectures, as well as tools for
simulated and real deployments. Potential authors are invited to submit
original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in
both theoretical and experimental research. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to, the following:

- Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to
- Energy harvesting models and optimization
- Machine intelligence in distributed sensor systems and real time
- Communication and networking primitives and protocols
- Autonomy: closing the loop between sensing and actuation
- Task allocation, reprogramming, and reconfiguration
- Robustness, resilience and dependability
- Security and privacy issues
- Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
- Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
- Mobile and human-centered sensing
- Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability
- Crowd sensing and social sensing techniques, applications, and systems
- Complex systems comprising wearable, robotic and/or fixed sensor
- Novel and compelling applications
- IoT systems for emerging and developing economies
- Green and environmentally-friendly IoT

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that
demonstrate current research on distributed sensor systems related to
DCOSS topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 X 11 in)
standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template
available on the link below:


All submissions should be written in English and submitted as a full or
work-in-progress paper. Full papers should have a maximum of eight (8)
printed pages including figures and references. Full papers are expected
to describe fully developed ideas with a thorough evaluation.
Work-in-progress papers should have a maximum of four (4) printed pages
including figures and references. Work-in-progress papers are expected
to describe new and interesting ideas that have not yet reached full

Note that DCOSS does not follow the double-blind review policy. The
names and affiliations of all the authors must be present in the
submitted manuscript.
