	Semantic Sensor Networks 2006 (SSN06):  Final Call for Papers
	-------------------------------------------------------------


	A workshop of the 5th International Semantic Web Conference ISWC
2006
	November 5-9, Athens, Georgia, USA 2006
	http://www.ict.csiro.au/ssn06/

	Paper Submission Deadline:  21st July, 2006 

Semantic technologies are often proposed as important components of
complex, cross-jurisdictional, 
heterogeneous, dynamic information systems. The needs and opportunities
arising from the rapidly 
growing capabilities of networked sensing devices are a challenging
case. 

Current and future sensing systems involve distributed wired and
wireless networks consisting of 
large numbers of sensors, including active and passive RFID tags.
Geographically distributed sensor 
nodes are capable of forming ad hoc networking topologies that
interconnect with backend 
information management systems and services. Sensor nodes are expected
to be dynamically 
inserted and removed from a network due to deployment of new sensor
nodes, failure of deployed 
sensor nodes, and mobility of tagged objects or sensing platforms.

The goal of a sensor networking system is to improve the situational
awareness of business 
activities across widely distributed deployment environments involving a
large number of diverse 
active and passive sensor nodes. Important applications include natural
resource management, 
product lifecycle management, supply chain management and situation
awareness on the battlefield. 

The goal of the Semantic Sensor Net workshop is to develop an
understanding of the ways semantic 
web technologies, including ontologies, agent architectures and semantic
web services can 
contribute to the growth, application and deployment of large-scale
sensor networks. The workshop 
will provide an inter-disciplinary forum to explore and promote these
concepts.

The workshop is now seeking paper submissions.  Topics include, but are
not limited to: 
      - Ontologies for sensor and RFID networks
      - Semantic web services architectures for sensor networks
      - Semantic data integration in large-scale heterogeneous sensor
networks
      - Semantic middleware for active and passive sensor networks
      - Semantic algorithms for data fusion and situation awareness 
      - Experience in applications of semantic technologies in sensor
networks
      - Rule-based sensor systems
      - Reasoning with incomplete or uncertain information in sensor
networks
      - Semantic policy management in inter-organisational networks
      - Semantic feedback and control
      - Scalability in semantic sensor networks
      - Sensor network topology management using semantic reasoning
      - Emergent semantics in sensor network systems


Important Dates

Paper Submission Deadline:  21st July, 2006 
Notification of Acceptance:  4th  September, 2006  
Final Manuscript due: 18th September, 2006

Paper submission

Papers will be reviewed by at least two program committee members for
their technical merit, 
originality, significance, and relevance to the workshop. The papers
must be in English and should 
be formatted following the style of Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS), Proceedings and
