Call For Papers

3rd International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks 2010 (SSN10)
First Call for Papers

A workshop of the 9th International Semantic Web Conference ISWC 2010

7—11 November 2010, Shanghai, China

Semantic technologies are often proposed as important components of
complex, cross-jurisdictional, heterogeneous, dynamic information
systems. The needs and opportunities arising from the rapidly growing
capabilities of networked sensing devices are a challenging case.

It is estimated that today there are 4 billion mobile devices that can
act as sensors, including active and passive RFID tags. This is
complemented by an even larger number of fixed sensors recording
observations of a wide variety of modalities. Geographically
distributed sensor nodes are capable of forming ad hoc networking
topologies, with nodes expected to be dynamically inserted and removed
from a network. The sensors are increasingly being connected with Web
infrastructure, and the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standard developed
by the Open GIS Consortium is being widely adopted in industry,
government and academia alike. While such frameworks provide some
interoperability, semantics are increasingly seen as a key enabler for
integration of sensor data and broader Web information systems.
Analytical and reasoning capabilities afforded by Semantic Web
standards and technologies are considered important for developing
advanced applications that go from capturing observations to
recognition of events and ultimately developing comprehensive
situational awareness. Defence, transportation, global enterprise, and
natural resource management industries are leading the rapid emergence
of applications in commercial, civic, and scientific operations that
involve sensors, web, services and semantics.

The goal of the Semantic Sensor Networks workshop is to develop an
understanding of the ways semantic web technologies can contribute to
the growth, application and deployment of large-scale sensor networks
on the one hand, and the ways that sensor networks can contribute to
the emerging semantic web, on the other. The workshop provides an
inter-disciplinary forum to explore and promote these concepts.

The workshop is now seeking paper submissions. Topics include, but are
not limited to:
- Semantic support for Sensor Web Enablement
- Semantic integration in heterogeneous sensor networks
- Sensors and observations for symbol grounding
- Semantic web services architectures for sensor networks
- Semantic algorithms for data fusion and situation awareness
- Rule-based sensor systems
- Semantic policy management in shared networks
- Semantic discovery of sensors, sensor data and services
- Semantic approaches to status monitoring and configuration of sensor
- Semantic reasoning for network topology management
- Semantic sensor context management and provenance
- Spatio-temporal reasoning in sensor networks
- Reasoning with incomplete or uncertain information in sensor networks
- Semantic middleware for active and passive sensor networks
- Experience in sensor network applications of semantic technologies
- Ontologies for sensor and RFID networks
- Semantic feedback and control
- Emergent semantics and ambient intelligence in sensor systems
- Scalability, security, trust and privacy in semantic sensor networks
- Semantic web in sensor data mashups
- Citizen sensors, participatory sensing and social sensing


Paper Submission Deadline: 27th August, 2010
Notification of Acceptance: 17th September, 2010
Final Manuscript Deadline: 15th October, 2010
Workshop: 7 or 8 November, 2010


Both full papers and short papers are sought. Full papers should be of
12- 16 pages length. Short papers should be 2-6 pages and should
clearly include "Short Paper", "Extended Abstract" or "Position Paper"
in the paper title. Papers will be reviewed by at least two program
committee members for their technical merit, originality, significance,
and relevance to the workshop. The papers must be in good English in
PDF format and in the Springer LNCS style. Accepted papers will be
published in a proceedings volume of CEUR-WS ( and
the best papers may be invited for extension and inclusion in a
Springer book. Full instructions for submission will be made available
