The Organization Committee (OC) is committed to ALGO 2020 and aware of the pandemic situation for the COVID-19 outbreak, announced by the World Health Organization. As already happened for other conferences, the OC is preparing backup plans such as moving the events or (partially) running them in a virtual way. What is most important is that the scientific activity of the Programme Committees of the ALGO conferences is not suspended or stopped: peer review, accepted papers, camera ready and proceedings will be accomplished as usual. As for the talks and the participation, the health and safety of our community is our priority: attending and giving the talks will be safe, and virtual presence will be possible in case of remaining safety concerns or travel restrictions.

Scope

ALGOSENSORS is an international symposium dedicated to the algorithmic aspects of wireless networks. Originally focused on sensor networks, it now covers algorithmic issues arising in wireless networks of all types of computational entities, static or mobile, including sensor networks, sensor-actuator networks, autonomous robots. The focus is on the design and analysis of algorithms, models of computation, and experimental analysis. It is colocated with ALGO 2020.

Important Dates

  • Abstract registration deadline: April 15, 2020
  • Paper submission deadline: April 22, 2020
  • Conference: September 9 - 10, 2020, in Pisa, Italy

Call for Papers

The ALGOSENSORS symposium aims to bring together research contributions related to diverse algorithmic aspects of sensor networks, wireless networks as well as distributed robotics, both from a theoretical and an experimental perspective.
This year ALGOSENSORS has three tracks:
- (A) Algorithms and Theory
- (B) Distributed and Mobile
- (C) Wireless Sensor Networks and Emergent applications
Each paper will be initially submitted to a single track but will be handled by the same program committee. The program committee will make sure that all papers are reviewed by PC members in the expertise area.

Paper Submission and Proceedings

Papers are to be submitted electronically using the EasyChair server at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=algosensors2020.
The submissions must contain original results that have not already been published and are not concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Each paper should select one of the tracks. Authors need to ensure that for each accepted paper at least one author will register and attend the symposium.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions are limited to twelve (12) single-column pages in the LNCS format. This includes figures, but excludes references and an optional appendix (to be read at the program committees discretion). Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Accepted papers will be published as ALGOSENSORS 2020 post-proceedings in the Springer LNCS series. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Pierre Fraigniaud

IRIF, Université Paris-Diderot, France

Pierre's main research interest is parallel and distributed computing, and specifically the design and analysis of distributed algorithms and data structures for networks. He is member of the Editorial Boards of Distributed Computing (DC), and Theory of Computing Systems (TOCS). He was Management Committee Chair of the European COST Action 295 DYNAMO on Algorithmic Aspects of Dynamic Networks. He is currently Chair of the national working group Complexity and Algorithms (CoA) of GdR IM. In 2012, he received the Silver Medal from CNRS, and, in 2014, the Prize for Innovation in Distributed Computing.
