Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I'm pleased to announce publication of:

    Semantic Sensor Network XG Final Report

The Semantic Sensor Network Incubator Group's mission was to begin the
formal process of producing ontologies that define the capabilities of
sensors and sensor networks, and to develop semantic annotations of a key
language used by services based sensor networks. The group extended their
charter to illustrate the framework's relationship to OGC Sensor Web
Enablement standards.

In the report the group described where ongoing research and
standardization efforts of the SSN ontology are likely to benefit from
their work and also where further work is required. They identified using
the SSN ontology in a Linked Sensor Data context and to bridge the
Internet of Things and the Internet of Services. The group also
recommended its participants and followers join the W3C Provenance Working
Group. Read more in their conclusion:

The group plans to create a W3C Community Group to focus on the
maintenance and extension of the SSN Ontology.

Congratulations to the XG. With this publication, the Semantic Sensor
Network Incubator Group is now closed.
