SESENA - Workshop on Software Engineering for Sensor Network Applications

In conjunction with ACM/IEEE Intl. Conf. on Software Engineering (ICSE)
May 3, 2010, Cape Town, South Africa

Creating distributed sensor network applications is a challenging and
cumbersome task where multiple objectives need to be pursued
simultaneously. Sensor network developers have to address not only the
functional application requirements, but also have to cope with a
number of difficult non-functional requirements and constraints
resulting from scarce resources including energy, from the need for
self-organization and unattended operation, from the heterogeneity of
sensor nodes, and from the unpredictability of the deployment

The lack of appropriate software development methodologies and tools
often leads to unstable and suboptimal implementations. Software
engineering support is therefore sought that eases the development
task and helps to produce optimized application software tailored to
the specific application environment and sensor network
conditions. Appropriate development support is needed for all phases
of the application software lifecycle.

The aim of the SESENA workshop is to bring together the software
engineering and sensor network communities (both academia and
industry) to jointly address this challenge. The workshop goals are to
provide a discussion forum on software development methodologies and
tools for sensor network applications, and to establish a community
that carries the discussion on even after the workshop. The workshop
will feature an invited keynote talk, paper presentations,
demonstrations of tools, as well as a working session.

Specific topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not
limited to the following aspects of software engineering for sensor

- model-driven approaches
- (macro)programming models, languages, and compilers
- genetic programming techniques
- multi-objective software development methodologies
- validation, verification, and debugging of functional and
  non-functional properties
- integrated solutions for multiple phases of the application lifecycle
- interfacing sensor network and backend software

Prospective participants are invited to submit position papers
containing original unpublished material describing (1) ongoing work
and new ideas, or (2) mature research results, or (3) experience
reports. Authors are encouraged to present tools and applications
informally during the demo session. Please indicate in the abstract of
your position paper if and how you are willing to contribute to the
demo session.

Submissions must conform to the ICSE submission format and rules (see
and may not exceed 6 pages. PDF files should be uploaded via EasyChair

All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee for quality
and relevance. Accepted papers will be published in the ICSE companion
proceedings and on the workshop web site.
