IEEE International Conference on Sensing, Communication and Networking
10-13 June 2019 // Boston, Massachusetts, USA



IEEE SECON 2019 will include a poster and a demo session to provide a unique forum to exchange innovative research ideas, recent results, and share experiences among researchers and practitioners in wireless networks, mobile systems and the Internet of Things. The focus of IEEE SECON this year is on systems research, experimentation and hands on evaluation. Looking beyond current networking paradigms, IEEE SECON welcomes pioneering cross-disciplinary work at the intersection of wireless and parallel disciplinary areas including (but not limited to) new devices, physics, biology, computing, to name a few, encompassing topics ranging from biological communication and computing networks to wireless communication networks in uncharted spectral bands. One of the key goals of this conference is to foster collaboration between industry and academia. Hence, participation of researchers/developers from industry and posters or demos reporting joint work between industry and academia are especially encouraged.


Demos and posters are solicited for any of the research topics relevant to SECON and can be any (but not limited to) of the following:

  • Upcoming research challenges, future directions and works in progress
  • Demonstrations of new applications and techniques
  • Practical implementations, research testbeds and living labs
  • Industrial and commercial developments
  • Recent research/implementation results and prototypes
  • Novel hardware and tools
  • Real-world deployments and platforms for research
  • Public-private and industrial-academic collaboration initiatives


Submissions for posters and demos should follow the IEEE conference 2-column template and have a minimum font size of 10 points. The documents must contain the authors’ names, affiliations, and contact information as well as specify the designated corresponding author.  Submissions will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations.


Poster submission guidelines: Submissions should be a two-page short paper/abstract describing the main contributions and merits, reporting on initial results and discussing challenges.


Demo submission guidelines: Submissions should not exceed three pages in length. The first two pages should describe the main contributions, merits, results and the demo itself while the third page should describe the requirements of the demo such as:

  • Equipment to be used;
  • Space needed and setup time required;
  • Additional facilities needed, e.g., power and Internet/wireless access. All additional equipment/needs are subject to budget approval.


Authors of accepted posters and demos will have a space to display their posters/demos, as well as to describe their work in discussions with interested attendees. Demo authors should also bring along a poster describing their ideas and setup. A Best Demo/Poster Award will be given to a high-impact submission selected by a committee, taking into account inputs from conference participants. The abstract of the accepted posters/demos will appear in conference proceedings, under the IEEE Communications Society policy that all accepted IEEE SECON 2019 posters and/or demos require at least a one-day registration. 


Posters and Demos  can be submitted via EDAS:
