					DIPSO 2007 Call for Papers

	1st International Workshop on Design and Integration Principles for  
Smart Objects

In Conjunction with the Ninth International Conference on Ubiquitous  
Computing (Ubicomp 2007)
				September 16, 2007. Innsbruck, Austria
					
			http://workshop.dcl.info.waseda.ac.jp/dipso2007

======================================================================== 
=================================


Tagging everyday objects with sensors/actuators and building an  
instrumented environment are recent
practices in industry and academia. In fact, the smart object domain  
has matured over the years. Several
successful prototypes and applications have already been demonstrated  
and deployed. However there is
minimal interoperability among the design practices of these projects  
and underlying infrastructures can
rarely be shared among isolated applications. We believe the primary  
reason behind this phenomenon is
the missing rationale of design and integration of smart artefacts.  
Now it is the time to focus on current
practices and align on some key issues to continue the further  
progress of smart objects. The primary
motivation of this workshop is to look at the existing systems, to  
extract and extrapolate the best practices,
  using the lessons learned from those projects to rationalize the  
design and integration approaches towards
  smart objects.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
				Scope
----------------------------------------------------------------------

We solicit technical papers describing original, novel and previously  
unpublished research results.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

•	Application Scenarios with Smart Objects
•	Design, Development and Representation of Smart Objects
•	Integration and Co-operation Model of Smart Objects
•	Programming Paradigm for Smart Object Systems
•	User Studies of Smart Object Systems



----------------------------------------------------------------------
	Format and Paper Submission Guidelines
----------------------------------------------------------------------


The workshop will be highly interactive to maximize information  
exchange and foster collaborations. Major
workshop activities will take place in small discussion groups  
following presentations of workshop participants.
Selection of workshop participants is based on submitted papers  
describing ongoing research and experiences.
We encourage submissions from researchers, practitioners and students  
from academia as well as industry. An
international program committee with appropriate expertise will  
review all papers. The ideal submission should
provide an insightful survey of existing works, experience report or  
present concrete, significant research based
on the implementation and evaluation of a smart object based working  
system.

Accepted papers will be published in the “Adjunct Proceedings” of  
Ubicomp 2007 and will be available to all
Ubicomp attendees. In addition all the accepted papers will be  
available in the Program Section of the workshop
website. Submissions should follow standard IEEE double column style  
guidelines, must not exceed 6 pages and
should be done via the workshop website in .pdf format.
