Sensor networks aim to provide scalable, robust, and self-configurable architectures for several real-world problems such as remote monitoring, autonomous surveillance, and distributed inference of complex, often large-scale, dynamical systems. The aim of this workshop is to explore the signal and information processing community's understanding of the big challenges in sensor networks and initiate a discussion for future collaborations between the signal/information processing and the CPS communities.

Workshop Format and Call for Papers
The workshop will consist of an invited keynote session, an invited oral session, a panel discussion, and a contributed poster session. Authors interested in contributing to the poster session are encouraged to submit a 2 page extended summary in two-column format (10 pt or 11 pt font) that provides sufficient details for reviewing purposes. Authors of accepted papers will be encouraged (but not required) to submit a full, 5-page paper in two-column format (10 pt or 11 pt font) for workshop proceedings.

Workshop Logistics
SPAdeS-Nets 2013 will take place during the workshop day of CPSWeek 2013 on April 8, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn's Landing Hotel, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Please refer to the CPSWeek 2013 website for registration, directions, and accommodation information.
