                      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 systems. 

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:
