The 2nd European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context (EuroSSC 2007)

October 23-25, 2007, Windermere, Lake District, UK

Organized by Lancaster University, 
co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (pending)

Proceedings published by Springer LNCS (pending)

EuroSSC 2007, the 2nd European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context, 
explores technical and human aspects of smart surroundings involving 
networked embedded sensing systems and intelligent objects. In particular, 
EuroSSC 2007 brings together designers, researchers, product vendors and 
users to explore two complementary viewpoints:
    * A technology-driven view: concerning intelligent sensors, sensor 
      networks and information processing for a new generation of 
      networked devices and intelligent environments.        
    * A user-driven view: exploring scenarios, applications and 
      interaction methods for context-aware and pro-active applications 
      made possible by the diffusion of ambient communication, 
      cooperating objects, and interaction technologies.
We welcome submissions that report on innovations in all areas related to 
smart surroundings, context-awareness and networked embedded sensing 
systems, in one or more of the following categories: papers, posters, 
demonstrations, and exhibits.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their novelty, clarity, and 
relevance through blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are 
withheld from the reviewers. Accepted papers will be published as Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag. Papers and posters 
will be fully reviewed. Authors of accepted submissions will have the 
opportunity to update their submissions based on the reviews before the 
final electronic copy is due. EuroSSC 2007 requires electronic submission. 
Reviewers will be instructed to maintain the confidentiality of all 
materials for submitted papers throughout the entire reviewing process. 
Submissions should contain no information that will be proprietary or 
confidential at the time of publication. 


Authors are encouraged to submit their papers describing original, 
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another 
conference or journal. The length of the manuscript should not exceed 
16 pages (LNCS format). For more information on the format, please check 
Information for LNCS Authors. Please address any questions about paper 
submissions to the program committee co-chair, 
Vasughi Sundramooorthy (v.sundramoorthy[at]comp[dot]lancs[dot]ac[dot]uk). 


Posters are solicited that present recent and on-going research by 
students. The poster submissions should include a 2-page (LNCS format) 
description of the student's research. Accepted posters will be printed in 
the conference proceedings and the poster will be presented at the 
conference poster and demonstration session. Please address any questions 
about poster submissions to the program committee co-chair 
Vasughi Sundramoorthy (v.sundramoorthy[at]comp[dot]lancs[dot]ac[dot]uk). 


Proposals for research demos are solicited. Proposals should not exceed 
3 pages (LNCS format) and should include a description of the demo and 
equipment to be used.
