Papers to be published: Selected papers from the workshopSummary
developments in sensor technology provide increasing
opportunities to analyze human behavior and monitor environmental
processes in a changing world.
Access to vast amounts of data from
mobile (e.g., gps, mobile phones), in situ (e.g., meteorological,
groundwater, seismic) and remote sensing sensors provides scientific
researchers with complex but very interesting spatial-temporal data
sets. However, the challenge will be to develop concepts and
applications that can provide timely and on-demand knowledge to
end-users in different domains and at a range of scale-levels.
this moment various communities show interest in sensor networks from
different perspectives. This workshop has the objective to elucidate
common concepts on aspects like data communication, processing,
standardization, knowledge discovery, representation, and
visualization. The workshop results in an overview of the state-of-the
art developments and identification of future research challenges
to improve the application of sensor webs in the environmental sciences
domains. The workshop brings together researchers, technology
developers and users of different involved disciplines and provides a
forum for fruitful discussions. If you would like to participate in the
workshop please register yourself via the workshop website.
During the workshop key-note speakers
provide an overview state-of-the-art developments, impact and
challenges for sensor web technology in different application fields:
urban, water, environment, transportation, agriculture, tourism etc. In
addition to the presentations, there will be ample time to discuss
relevant issues and open questions.Workshop Topics
encourage the submission of both conceptual and application oriented
contributions for the following topics (but are not limited to):
* Knowledge discovery from sensory data sets
* Scale issues in the processing and application of spatial temporal sensory data.
* Real-time and on-demand representation and visualization of sensor data
* Information extraction from sensor network data
* Integration of sensor webs and dynamical modeling
* Development of location and movement based services
* Standardized access to sensor data and the linkage to spatial data infrastructures
* Application of mobile sensor based tracking applications (
transportation, urban, tourism, cellular census, location based
* In situ and earth observation
sensor applications (groundwater, air-quality, river management,
agriculture, extreme events etc.)Submission
