Call for Papers

Scope

S-CUBE 2020, the 11th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software, provides an ideal venue to disseminate state-of-the-art work in the broad area of system development and software support for wireless sensors networks (WSN).

The technological revolution occurring in the sensorization is pushing the way we must engineer solutions. Robustness, efficiency, scalability, flexibility, sustainability, and security are some of the terms we become used to find in the requirement documentation linked to those projects. Sensors are becoming more intelligent, wireless networks are becoming more affordable and powerful, and system engineering must keep up aligned to give the required response to the complexity inherent to the new functional and non-functional requirements. It is a challenging task in a highly dynamic environment. The recent pandemic threat is an example of the challenges mentioned above. Suddenly, technological development made it possible to implement an App capable of helping to detect potential infections using WSN devices. Something that technology was not planned for, revealing the difficulty of understanding how such a complex system would work, and rising legitimate fears. The domains in expansion, like Smart Cities and Industry 4.0, are forcing to re-think the engineering methods and tools, as well as the infrastructures, aiming to improve the design and management of the future complex WSN-based systems.
