Call: S-CUBE 2014, 5th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software


5th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software
October 5-7, 2014 Warwick, Great Britain


S-CUBE 2014, the 5th International Conference on Sensor Systems and Software, provides an ideal venue to disseminate state-of-the-art work in the areas of system development and software support for wireless sensor network-based systems. This year conference theme centred on Mobile Sensing. This theme reflects recent proliferation of mobile devices equipped with an increasing number of sensors based mobile applications. Mobile sensing applications have penetrated into many application domains such as health, gaming and entertainment, security and privacy, navigation, mobile search and advertising, by taking advantages of the availability of miniature wireless sensors. This conference will bring together researchers from industry and academia to share insights, designs, and research findings on mobile sensing technologies, systems, and applications. Historically, mobile sensing technologies and sensing platforms have played a major role for enabling new applications and experiences in pervasive computing and wireless sensing networks.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Disaster (fire, earthquakes..etc.) monitoring, sensing and management
  • Experiences of real-world Mobile Sensing applications
  • Innovative mobile and mobile sensing applications
  • Human Behaviour Understanding
  • Mobile urban interaction
  • Novel citizen sensing technologies
  • Crisis management
  • Sensing in a hostile environment
  • Sensing and social media
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Spatial and temporal data visualization
  • Security and privacy in mobile sensing systems
  • Tools and platforms for pervasive sensor systems planning, development, monitoring and maintenance
  • Smart-Cities
  • Detection, classification, and tracking
  • Data processing, storage and management

The conference caters for a limited number of workshops on dedicated session topics. Such topics may be, but are not limited to

  • Mobile sensing and the cloud
  • Sensing and big data
  • Mobile sensing and wearable
  • Life logging
  • Digital storytelling
  • Visualising citizen data

A workshop proposal should include the following information: (1) the title of the workshop, (2) name, affiliation and biographies of the organizer, (3) an abstract of no more than one page describing the aim of the workshop and the motivation for holding it and participating to it (target audience), (4) a workshop chair and a tentative list of participants / speakers, (5) the expected duration of the workshop, (6) a draft CFP of the workshop. Workshop sessions are expected to last 90-120 minutes, but a workshop may comprise multiple sessions. For submission instructions, please visit the conference website.


Long papers should be between 8-12 pages in length and position papers between 4-6 pages in length.Complete formatting and submission instructions can be found on the conference web site. Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three expert reviewers.

Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal.


The program committee will select one of the accepted papers as the “S-CUBE 2014 Best Paper Award”. The winner(s) will be announced during the conference.


Accepted papers will be published in the Springer’s LNICST series and will appear in SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef and Scopus. Selected papers may be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications. ACM digital library is also sought for publication.
