Call for Special Issue on Semantic Sensor Networks
========================================================

‘International Journal of Sensors, Wireless Communications and Control
(SWCC;www.bentham.org/swcc)’ is an established peer-reviewed international
journal devoted to publishing timely, in-depth reviews, research articles
and communications on networked control systems whose sensors are
interconnected via wireless communication networks.

In addition to publishing regular reviewarticles, the journal also publishes
full-length or mini- ‘Hot Topic’ thematic issues that are guest-edited by
leading scientists in their areas of research emphasis. Thematic issues are
particularly widely-read and cited.

=================
Special Issue Outline
=================

Sensor technologies are often supporting pervasive and ubiquitous solutions
and serve as means of perceiving real world conditions. Problems arise when
information that is gathered from various deployed sensors needs to be
homogenized, integrated, fused, reasoned upon and queried at. Following an
approach based on semantic web technologies by embedding meaning and
rendering the information both machine and human consumable seems to be a
promising yet still to be evolved domain. Semantic web technologies and
their applications in sensor information, such as ontologies, reasoning
(distributed or centralized), triple stores, semantic annotations and
metadata management, inference, semantic web services are all technologies
that find numerous applications in sensor networks.

This special issue aims to address semantic sensor network technologies and
applications. Original research papers and state of the art reviews will be
accepted. Topics of interest of this special issue include, but are not
limited to:

• Semantic-based information monitoring, administering and querying
• Semantic sensor frameworks and applications
• Inference in sensor networks
• Semantic data integration in large-scale sensor networks
• Semantic data fusion and stream processing
• Semantic services architectures
• Knowledge management in sensor networks
• Scalability in semantic sensor networks
• Information flow in sensor networks.

The special issue is highly inherent to the hot research topics of interest
regarding knowledge in sensor networks. Papers submitted for publication for
this special issue will be peer reviewed and selected on basis of their
quality and relevance to the theme of this special issue.
