Complementing the topics of SenSys 2021 and ASPLOS 2022, this workshop will bring researchers together to explore the challenges, issues, and opportunities in the research, design, and engineering of energy-harvesting, energy-neutral, and intermittent sensing systems.
New this year, ENSsys will run twice, first as a part of SenSys 2021 and then (tentatively) as a part of ASPLOS 2022. Our goal is to leverage the success of ENSsys to both continue to support our home in the wireless sensor networking community and to grow interest and excitement for energy neutral, energy harvesting, and intermittent systems in the computer architecture and systems communities. For ENSsys@SenSys, we invite 1-2 page demo abstracts and short 2-3 page short papers. The short papers, which may be early ideas, will receive thoughtful feedback from TPC members and seed breakout discussions in the afternoon of ENSsys@SenSys. Short papers that grow to full paper submissions in time for the second iteration of ENSsys@ASPLOS will receive special consideration and the same set of reviewers (where possible). Accepted demos will also be invited to repeat their demo again at ASPLOS.

- Internet of (battery-less) things
- Experience with real-world deployments and innovative applications
ENSsys@SenSys will be a highly interactive workshop.
First, we invite demos from established energy harvesting systems – we aim to open ENSsys with a showcase of existing work to set a baseline of what is possible today and spark ideas for what can be built in the future. Demos previously presented in other venues are explicitly welcome.
For new work, we invite short papers on technical issues in energy harvesting systems that remain underserved or more radical positions that invite rethinking of current system design. Unlike demo abstracts, short paper submissions cannot contain previously published work. We will use these papers to organize several smaller, highly interactive workgroups. Accepted short papers will be invited for fast-track submission as full papers at ENSsys@ASPLOS.
We look forward to seeing you at ENSsys 2021!
