Call for Papers

EAI S-CUBE 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.
If the situation allows it, the event will take place in its original location with an option to present remotely. In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.

Scope

S-CUBE 2021, the 12th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software, is part of the 7th annual Smart City 360˚ Convention, promoting multidisciplinary scientific collaboration to solve complex societal, technological and economic problems of emerging Smart Cities. The aim of the conference is to create a forum in which researchers from academia and industry, practitioners, business leaders, intellectual property experts, and venture capitalists may work together in order to compare and debate different innovative solutions. The conference will feature a highly selective technical program consisting of regular research papers, short papers, posters and demos to disseminate state-of-the-art work in the broad area of system development and software support for control systems and 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. Wireless sensor networks are enabling innovative and interesting applications ranging from smart-homes and smart-cities to precision agriculture and advanced healthcare. The widespread acceptance of these new services however can be improved by designing techniques promoting ubiquity, the definition of new protocols, frameworks, and architectures that can not only simplify the software development of wireless sensor networks, but that can also facilitate their system design, control design, deployment, monitoring and maintenance, taking in account power requirements and physical assembly, frequently in adverse environments. Tackling these challenges requires contributions from many fields such as physics (new materials and implementation techniques), control engineeing, embedded systems, software engineering, real-time data acquisition and data fusion, wireless protocols and system security. 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. 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.
