                      CALL FOR POSTERS AND DEMOS

                       ***** EuroSSC 2009 *****

 ***** 4th IEEE European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context *****

              The deadline for your 4 page submission is on
                             20 July 2009

                          16-18 September 2009
                             Guildford, UK



We would like to invite you to present your recent and on-going work on
smart sensing and context as a poster or demo at EuroSSC 2009.

The annual conference explores new techniques, algorithms, architectures,
protocols, services, and user aspects utilising context and context-aware
services and applications. Topics coverage include smart sensing, context
recognition, and context processing in the framework of a Real World
Internet. Of growing interest are methods and principles for context
abstraction and processing, quality of context, machine-interpretable
representation of context, context- aware service platforms, and
horizontalisation of context information access to leverage smart
surroundings for a wide range of applications rather than single closed

Past editions were held at ETH Switzerland (2008), University of Lancaster
in UK (2007), and University of Twente, Netherlands (2006).

Topics of interest:

* Distributed smart sensing and context recognition
  o Smart sensing: sensors inferring context and context-aware sensing
  o Context-aware surroundings and infrastructures
  o Distributed objects and wearables inferring context
  o Algorithms and architectures for scalable context recognition
  o Quality of Context (context uncertainty, unreliable sensing)
  o Distributed software architectures for context awareness

* Context processing and categorisation
  o Context reasoning, fusion, transformation, inference
  o Context processing given Quality of Context
  o Scalable context management and processing architectures
  o Information aspects of context-aware sensor and actuator systems
  o Context categorisation and classification

* Context-altering actuators, interaction methods, and human aspects
  o Principles and methods for context-aware actuation and feedback
  o Distributed context-aware actuators
  o Interaction with context-aware objects, wearables and proactive
  o Quality of Actuation
  o Symbiosis between autonomic context-aware sensor and actuator
    systems and users
  o Social implications, user-controlled privacy, securing context

* Service environment, applications, deployment, test beds and case
  o Real-world experiences with deployed systems
  o Applications and case studies related to smart surroundings &
    intelligent objects
  o Integration with the Internet of the Future – the Real World
  o Development tools, deployment principles, and life-cycle support
  o Wearable computing and pervasive computing applications
  o Sensor networks and information processing for new generations
    of context enabled devices
  o Intelligent sensors and sensor network systems
  o Context-aware service platforms


* Professor Amit Sheth from the Wright State University will talk
  about "Computing for Human Experience: Semantics empowered Sensors,
  Services, and Social Computing on ubiquitous Web".
  His homepage is at

* Dr. Marimuthu Palaniswami from ARC Research Network on Intelligent
  Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing (ISSNIP), the
  University of Melbourne will hold a talk on "Large Scale Sensor
  Networks Deployment: Research Challenges and Opportunities"
  His homepage is at

Posters should present recent and on-going research in smart sensing and
context area. The poster submissions should include a 4-page (LNCS
format) description of the current research. The demonstrations also require
a 4-page (LNCS format) submission to describe the presented work. Accepted
submissions for posters and demonstrations will be printed in the adjunct
conference proceedings with an own ISBN number.
The submitted work is expected to be presented at the conference.
Submission open at:
