About sensorium
English (USA)

sensorium is a mailing list for the sensor network community. It is intended for posting conference and position announcements relevant to researchers in the field.

Using sensorium
To post a message to all the list members, send email to sensorium@lists.stanford.edu.

For detailed message format and content guidelines please read the Moderation of Contributions section on this page.

In order to avoid spam, duplication, and other misuses, a moderator reviews all submissions prior to posting. Thus, submissions will not be posted to the list immediately. Further, the moderator reserves the right to modify a submission without notice or permission in order to remove extraneous information not relevant to the content of the submission (such as apologies for multiple announcements) or to alter the subject field to better reflect the content of the submission (such as modifying "Call for Papers" to include a conference name).

If your submission is posted, you will not receive individual confirmation (other than by receiving your submission as a subscriber to the list, or by monitoring the archive). If your submission is not posted, you will receive a response explaining why the moderator returned your submission. Spam messages will be rejected outright and will not be acknowledged.

Moderation of Contributions

In order to avoid spam, duplication, and other misuses, a moderator reviews all submissions prior to posting. Thus, submissions will not be posted to the list immediately. Further, the moderator reserves the right to modify a submission without notice or permission in order to remove extraneous information not relevant to the content of the submission (such as apologies for multiple announcements) or to alter the subject field to better reflect the content of the submission (such as modifying "Call for Papers" to include a conference name).

Format Guidelines

Contributors are encouraged to consider some format guidelines regarding submissions. These guidelines are meant both to help focus the list and to ease the duties of the moderator. They are in no way meant to discourage contribution.

  • Submissions not in plain text with either an ASCII encoding or an ISO-8859-x encoding will be returned.
  • Submissions that contain forward or response characters (such as a greater-than symbol preceding each line) will be returned if they are convoluted, at the discretion of the moderator. Such characters will not be removed prior to posting.
  • Submissions that contain multipart MIME encoding will be returned if they are convoluted, at the discretion of the moderator. All MIME headers and trailers will be removed prior to posting.
  • Submissions that contain non-text MIME encoding (such as attached graphics or application data) will be returned.
  • Submissions that include extensive markup information (such as HTML) will be returned. Limited markup information may be overlooked, at the discretion of the moderator.
  • Submissions that are not written in English will be returned, due to the international (and primarily English-speaking) audience of the list. Submissions that are written in other languages are welcome if the overall content is summarized by an English introduction, at the discretion of the moderator.
  • Submissions should include as few extended characters as possible, since many mail readers do not properly interpret such characters. If extended characters are present in a submission, please understand that they may be translated incorrectly during the posting process.
  • Submissions should be appropriately formatted with respect to content, mindful of the fact that many mail readers support only fixed-width characters in eighty columns. In extreme cases, poorly formatted submissions will be returned.
Content Guidelines

Contributors are encouraged to consider some content guidelines regarding submissions. These guidelines are meant both to help focus the list and to ease the duties of the moderator. They are in no way meant to discourage contribution.

  • Submissions should include an appropriate and descriptive subject. For example, a subject of "Call for Papers" is less desirable than one that also includes the conference name.
  • Submissions not relevant to the field of software engineering will be returned. Because such a wide variety of topics can be indirectly related to software engineering, this is a somewhat ambiguous requirement. However, if a submission has a clear focus in another well-established field (such as parallel processing or database systems), a brief explanation should be included as to how the submission relates to software engineering. (Such an explanation will be removed prior to posting.) Please consider that those interested in other fields will likely have subscribed to the relevant mailing lists.
  • Submissions that advertise commercial or other for-profit ventures will be returned. The interpretation of "commercial or other for-profit ventures" is left to the discretion of the moderator.
  • Submissions that solicit information from subscribers will be returned. The interpretation of "solicit information from subscribers" is left to the discretion of the moderator, but normally includes surveys and requests for discussion group participation.
  • Submissions that advertise web sites (personal or otherwise) with no corresponding activity or event will be returned.
  • Submissions that advertise tools, utilities, software systems, or other such products will be returned.
  • Submissions that duplicate or modify previous postings will be returned. Interested parties are expected to be aware of updates through means described in the original submission (such as a URL).
  • Submissions should include contact information for further inquiries.
  • Submissions should prominently note important dates and deadline information.
  • Submissions that include an important acronym (such as the title of a conference) should also include the expansion of the acronym.

Although all submissions are welcome, postings ordinarily fall into two categories: conference (or symposium, etc.) announcements, and position announcements. Consequently, a few additional guidelines have evolved to deal specifically with such submissions. These guidelines are meant only to provide general criteria for evaluation, and are historically typical of postings. They are in no way meant to discourage contribution.

Conference Submission Guidelines

Contributors are encouraged to consider some guidelines regarding conference submissions. These guidelines are meant only to provide general criteria for evaluation, and are historically typical of postings. They are in no way meant to discourage contribution.

  • One submission detailing a call for papers may be posted for each conference (or symposium, etc.). A "call for papers" in this sense usually refers to an initial announcement, describing the focus of the conference, requesting contributions, and enumerating dates and deadline information.
  • One submission detailing a call for participation may be posted for each conference (or symposium, etc.). A "call for participation" in this sense usually refers to a supplementary announcement, describing accepted papers and other program details, providing registration instructions, and enumerating further dates and deadline information.
  • Other submissions detailing unique calls for each conference (or symposioum, etc.) may be posted at the discretion of the moderator. Such calls might include a call for conference organizers or individual calls for conference workshop proposals, papers, and participation. Please note: It is strongly recommended that conference organizers submit composite announcements regarding all conference-related workshops, as individual workshop calls will no longer be posted.
  • Submissions that advertise a conference (or symposium, etc.) should include the URL for the conference web site, if available. Those interested in the conference are presumed to be kept aware of updates via this URL.
Position Submission Guidelines

Contributors are encouraged to consider some guidelines regarding position submissions. These guidelines are meant only to provide general criteria for evaluation, and are historically typical of postings. They are in no way meant to discourage contribution.

  • Position announcements should only advertise openings for those with software engineering credentials, or for those with computer science credentials in general.
  • Position announcements should only advertise openings at academic or research institutions, so long as the motivation is not for-profit.
  • Position announcements should not advertise openings for graduate students or for graduate-level or other student work, though announcements regarding special fellowships may be accepted at the discretion of the moderator.

Please note that the moderator is human and is therefore prone to make the occasional mistake. If you feel a returned submission should still be posted, polite arguments are welcome. If you feel a submission should not have been posted, please inform the administrator by sending an e-mail message to the following address:

sensorium-owner@lists.stanford.edu

All submissions are individually evaluated for posting, and every effort is made on the part of the moderator to exercise fair and impartial judgement.
