Don't miss out on the opportunity to network with international researchers and practitioners and discuss the latest research findings and trends in sensor systems and software at S-Cube 2012, an event connected to the European innovation community through EAI endorsement (http://eai.eu/). The conference provides an ideal venue to address the research challenges facing system development and software support for wireless sensor network-based systems that have the potential to impact society in many ways. Currently, wireless sensor networks enable innovative and interesting application scenarios that may support a large amount of different applications including environmental monitoring, seismic sensing, smart-homes, disaster prevention, building automation, object tracking, nuclear reactor control, fire detection, agriculture, healthcare, utility infrastructure monitoring, and traffic monitoring. The widespread acceptance of these new services can be improved with the definition of new programming languages, frameworks, and architectures that have the potential to radically simplify software development for wireless sensor network based applications. The aim of these new architectures is to support flexible, scalable programming of applications based on adaptive middleware, and agile hardware. Moreover the design of new complex systems, characterized by the interaction of different and heterogeneous resources, requires the development of innovative applications to meet high performance quality of service demands. Hence, WSNs will benefit from contributions from many fields such as embedded systems, distributed systems, real-time data acquisition and data fusion, wireless protocols, and system security.
The aim of the conference is to create a forum in which researchers from academia and industry, practitioners, business leaders, intellectual property experts, and venture capitalists may work together in order to compare and debate different innovative solutions. The conference will feature a highly selective technical program consisting of regular research papers, short papers, and posters as well as specialized tracks at the intersection of business and technology.

The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online and covers a variety of scientific disciplines. LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, and Zentralblatt Math, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). But we don’t stop at supporting the traditional indexing
services: to increase attention and probability of citation of your article in Web 2.0, ICST supports innovative web tools that enable researchers to better share, classify and disseminate articles via the many different social bookmarking and networking services. As an example of this, learn about UCount, a community-based approach for measuring scientific reputation. Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). Extended versions of selected best papers will be published in a Special Issue of Emerging Internet Infrastructures.
