What are Open Posters?

Abstract Classification

Open Poster Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit abstracts in any one of the topic areas listed below. The conference welcomes abstracts that are theoretical and/or experimental, as well as abstracts that address system issues such as concepts for sensor networks, autonomous systems and ultra low power sensor and sensor systems.

Abstracts in the area of theory, modeling and simulation are highly welcomed and may be submitted to the most relevant topical area or to "Theory, Design and Test Methodology".

Abstracts that encompass nanotechnology may be submitted to the "Nanoscale Materials, Devices and Fabrication", or the most appropriate application oriented topical area.
