Call For Papers

3rd International Workshop on SensorWebs, Databases and Mining
in Networked Sensing Systems (SWDMNSS 2009)

in conjunction with the 6th International Conference
on Networked Sensing Systems (INSS 2009)

June 19, 2009
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA

The development and deployment of sensor networking technologies has
led to the emergence of an Internet-wide infrastructure for networked
sensing systems and collections of heterogeneous sensor networks. Sensor
network or collections of distributed sensor networks are now one of the
tremendous information resources on the Internet. The SensorWeb (the
generic term for such sensor networks and sensor network collections) can
provide real-time and historical information representing situations,
contexts and changes about the real world.

Sensor networks may be regarded as an enormous virtual database that can
provide dynamic real-world information. This has the potential for
application in all areas of life, especially if people are able to query
and search such information resources as they do nowadays on the World
Wide Web. This utility would be further strengthened if the searched
results should be provided in an understandable and potentially machine
re-usable form. For example, aggregated, summarized or symbolized sensor
information is more useful for understanding complex phenomena than raw
sensor information. Such information integration will likely be brought
about by novel methods for data mining and information extraction
specifically tailored to networked sensing systems.

Information integration should combine sensor-specific querying techniques,
e.g. according to geographic location, and web search engines, e.g.,
focusing on content, in order to provide an integrated real world search
engine. In order to realize such real-world searching on networked sensing
systems, technologies from different research fields are required:
a) network technologies to integrate and overlay heterogeneous sensor
networks, b) database technologies to manage and search spatial and
temporal information, c) data mining technologies to extract useful
information from sensor databases and other related resources.

This workshop aims to bring together technical papers about networks,
databases and data mining for spatial and temporal information and
discuss technical issues on integrating sensor networks, databases and
Internet technologies. This workshop will open-up a novel and
interdisciplinary research area for networked sensing systems covering
different research fields such as sensor networks, databases, information
integration and web engineering. It provides the opportunity to discuss
key technologies for searching the real-world information provided by
networked sensing systems.

This workshop will focus on data-driven and data-centric aspects of
networked sensing systems rather than sensor devices and hardware
architecture for networked sensing systems. Original papers on database
and network technologies for spatial and temporal information (e.g.,
sensor data, stream data, time-series data, geographic information and
web information) are welcome.

In order to have constructive discussions on presentations, the organizers
plan to provide more time for Q&A and discussions in comparison with that
of general conferences. The organizers hope that presenters will receive
good feedback on their research and the discussion may inspire new research
directions for all attendees.

Topics of this workshop are the following (but are not limited):
* Sensor databases: managing, archiving and searching sensing data
* Spatial and temporal databases for networked sensing system
* Query processing architecture for spatial and temporal data
* Mining, aggregation and integration of spatial and temporal data
* Stream data processing and mining
* Data representation and query description language for networked sensing system
* Overlay network and P2P technologies for networked sensing system
* Integration of heterogeneous sensor networks
* Software architectures for sensor networks and databases
* Networked sensing system for mobile and ubiquitous computing
* Text mining, language processing, information extraction on the Web
* Sensor data integration, mapping and visualization
* Sensor web enablement and standardization
* Location-based services and geographic information systems (SensorGIS)
* Experiences on the deployment and experiments of sensor networks

How to submit
Authors have to register first with a easychair account in the SWDMNSS2009
Submission website (
Please use the "I have no EasyChair account" button on the login page.
Creating the account is straightforward. The author request an account
and has to confirm the request using an URL sent to him/her via E-Mail.
Easychair is using a secret word on the confirmation webpage. It can be
freely selected by the author during the account request.

Once the account is created, the author should login and can start the
paper submission.
