The 15th IEEE Annual International Conference on
Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2019)

May 29-31, 2019
Santorini Island, Greece

IEEE DCOSS 2019 is the 15th International Conference on Distributed 
Computing in Sensor Systems to be hosted on Santorini Island in Greece, 
in May 29-31, 2019. In the last few years, we have witnessed a 
significant growth in the use of 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 distributed information 
processing issues arising in networked sensor systems, 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Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts 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 

- Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to 
- Energy harvesting models and optimisation
- 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
