Labeling the World
Special Issue of IEEE Pervasive Computing

Submission deadline: 1st November 2009
Publication: April-June 2010

Recent progress in robustly tagging objects and locations in the real world, semantically 
tying them to digital content and mechanisms, enables a variety of exciting applications 
in areas such as context-aware systems and mixed/augmented reality. This special issue 
will report on new research in this expanding area of pervasive computing, both in terms 
of enabling technology and innovative applications.

Suitable topics for submission include, but are not limited to:

New application areas for label-based systems, e.g.
- interesting applications and systems that link physical and virtual objects into the 
Web/Internet of Things;
- new applications of RFID, barcodes or existing tagging technologies;

Information extraction and knowledge generation based on labelled environments, e.g.
- recognition of objects and activities in real-world environments;
- automatic extraction of semantics from image, audio or video content, such as 
determining where and when a photograph was taken;
- imperceptible spatio-temporal coding of the physical environment;
- exploiting context and relationships to assist labeling of physical artifacts;

Usability and use aspects of labeling methods and label-based systems, e.g.
- new interaction and presentation models for hybrid physical/virtual systems;
- investigations into usability and cognitive aspects of labeling;
- novel methods for tagging physical objects, animals or people;
- privacy-preserving approaches to tagging
