Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on the Semantic Sensor Web (SemSensWeb 2009)
June 1st, 2009
Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Collocated with the 6th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2009)

Millions of sensors are currently been deployed in sensor
networks around the globe and are actively collecting an enormous
amount of data. Together with legacy data sources, specialized
software modules (e.g., modules performing mathematical modeling and
simulation) and current Web 2.0 technologies such as mashups,
deployed sensor networks give us the opportunity to develop unique
applications in a variety of sectors (environment, agriculture,
health, transportation, surveillance, public security etc.). The
terms Sensor Internet, Sensor Web and Sensor Grid have recently been
used to refer to the combination of sensor networks and other
technologies (Web, service-oriented, Grid and database) with the
view of addressing this opportunity.

Previous Sensor Internet, Sensor Web and Sensor Grid proposals make
very little use of semantics (e.g., they do not use semantic
annotations, metadata, ontologies etc.) and, in fact, whenever these
proposals do refer to semantic concepts, they do so in an
unprincipled and non-systematic way. On the contrary, the use of
explicit semantics for Web and Grid resources as pioneered by many
Semantic Web and Semantic Grid projects enables us to overcome the
heterogeneity of data and resources, and to improve tasks like data
sharing, service discovery and composition etc.

In this workshop, we would like to explore whether the core ideas
and technologies of the Semantic Web can also be applied to sensor
networks to allow the development of an open information space which
we call the Semantic Sensor Web. The Semantic Sensor Web unifies the
real and the virtual world by integrating sensor technologies and
Semantic Web technologies.

TOPICS OF INTEREST (including but not limited to):
* Data models and languages for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Architectures and middleware for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Ontologies and rules for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Annotation tools for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Semantic data integration of heterogeneous sensor network
data streams
* Registries for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Mashup technologies for the Semantic Sensor Web
* Semantic Sensor Web applications

We invite two kinds of submissions:
* Research papers. These should not exceed 15 pages in length.
* Demos. Deployed technologies (sensors, middleware and mashups)
are important if the Semantic Sensor Web is to be realized.
We therefore strongly encourage the submission of demo papers, and the
presentation of demos related to research papers (a separate demo
paper does not need to be submitted in this case, but the research
paper should clearly discuss the demo to be presented). Demo papers
should not exceed 5 pages in length.

Submissions should be formatted according to the Lecture Notes in
Compute Science guidelines for proceedings available at Papers
should be submitted in PDF format. The submission site will be open
soon and will be accessible from the workshop's Web page

At least one author of each accepted paper or demo must register for
the workshop. Information about registration will appear soon on the
ESWC 2009 Web page.

We expect the workshop proceedings to be
published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings (see

* Paper and demo submission: March 8, 2009
* Notification of acceptance or rejection: April 4, 2009
* Camera ready version due: April 18, 2009
