NetSys 2023, International Conference on Networked Systems 2023

4-7 September 2023 – Potsdam, Germany

20th edition of the Fachgespräch Sensornetze (FGSN 2023)

Quo Vadis Sensor Networks?

There are many names we use to call them, like the (original) Wireless Sensor Networks, Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks, Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems, and some others. More or less visible, they are already applied in many aspects of our lives for different purposes.

During the 20 years of FGSN we were able to observe the process of the birth and evolution of wireless sensor networks. What does it look like now, from that time perspective? Is there still room for research and improvements? Or is it maybe that mature that everything has been already said? And what does it look like from the industry point of view? What is the future of sensor networks?

These retrospective and perspective views are the central topic of the FGSN 2023. Contributions elaborating on this, but not only those, are invited!

The 20th FGSN at NetSys!

The 20th edition of the Fachgespräch Sensornetze (FGSN 2023) will be held in September 2023 at Hasso-Plattner-Institut as part of the NetSys conference in Potsdam.

The aim of this series of Fachgespräch is to give scientists from academia and industry the opportunity for an informal exchange of ideas and to strengthen cooperation in this multidisciplinary research area. All around the sensor networks.

The websites and contributions of the past events are available via the FGSN website.
