Call for Papers - ISA 2009
The First International Workshop on Indoor Spatial Awareness
in conjunction with MDM 2009
May 18, 2009, Taipei, Taiwan
With the rapid progress of location based services, GIS, and
ubiquitous computing technologies, the space that we are dealing
with is no longer limited to outdoor space but being extended
to indoor space. Indoor spaces has some differences from outdoor
space, therefore to provide integrated spaces and seamless services,
it is required to establish new theories, data models, and systems.
For this reason, research has begun to extend the scope of LBS
and GIS to indoor space for the applications such as indoor navigation
services, indoor LBS and indoor GIS. This workshop is therefore
intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners
carrying out research and development related to the topic of indoor
spatial awareness and to provide a forum for interdisciplinary
discussions in all aspects of indoor spatial awareness.

Topics of Interest: The topics of workshop include (but not limited)
the following:
- indoor spatial data models,
- handling moving objects in indoor space,
- tracking and navigation in indoor space,
- indexing and query processing of indoor spatial databases,
- construction of indoor spatial databases,
- context-awareness in indoor space,
- indoor space analysis,
- indoor spatial data mining,
- ontology for indoor space,
- interoperability and standards, and
- applications and services for indoor space

Information for authors and submission guidelines: Papers should be
submitted via the workshop web page (paper submission page). All
submitted papers should be written in English up to 6 pages in PDF
and IEEE style. Formatting instructions and LaTeX macros are available
on the IEEE Computer Society sites
- 8.5x11 - Formatting files
Acceptance will be based on relevance, technical quality, originality,
and clarity of presentation. All submitted papers will be reviewed
by at least 3 referees, in a double-blind review process. Papers
which are not anonymous will be excluded from the reviewing process.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings, which will be
printed in hardcopy with IEEE press and included in IEEE Explore.
For more information, please contact one of the workshop co-chairs,
Prof. Mike Worboys ( and
Prof. Ki-Joune Li (
