The International Conference on Embedded Wireless Systems and Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference focusing on premier research results at the intersection of embedded systems and wireless networking - an area of highest relevance for visionary technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems as well as applications such as Industry 4.0, Smart Production, Smart Cities, and Connected Cars.
The featured topic of the 2018 edition of EWSN is "Sustainable Embedded Wireless Systems", with contributions that aim to contain the energy cost and the carbon footprint of embedded wireless systems. This builds on top of the successful EWSN 2016 and EWSN 2017 editions featuring the topic of "Dependability". Sustainable embedded wireless systems will operate on top of reliable, safe, and secure systems studied in past editions. Topics such as energy-efficient wireless networking technologies and architectures, backscatter communication, adaptation of embedded systems supplied by variable renewable energy sources, wireless power transfer as well as application of embedded wireless systems to increase the energy efficiency of smart homes, smart buildings, and smart cities are welcome. Topics not related to "Sustainable Embedded Wireless Systems" are equally welcome as long as they fall into the scope of the conference, as described below.
Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Papers presented at the Conference will be considered for a Best Paper Award, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Simulation (TCSIM). Papers of particular merit will be selected to be fast-tracked to ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks.
