3rd International Workshop on Blending Physical and Digital Spaces on the Internet (OneSpace2010)

In conjunction with the Future Internet Symposium 2010 (FIS2010)

20 September 2010, Berlin, Germany

++ Deadline for submission: July 23, 2010 ++ Full, demos, and position 
++ papers invited ++

The third edition of Onespace will continue to offer a venue for the interdisciplinary exposition, exploration and cross-fertilisation of trends in how the Internet contributes to blend and modify reality and real-life technology, with a focus on spatial aspects. The scope will be open to conceptual, experimental, and technological perspectives although we envisioned, as usual, a rather applied orientation supporting more fundamental discussions. The primary notions involved will be those of (geo)spatial and temporal sensitivity in physical, digital and virtual contexts, and the blending of digital and virtual images of space and of the physical realm.

The intended audience of the workshop are researchers and practitioners for whom spatial issues, broadly conceived, are an important thematic in relation to their interest in the Future Internet and Web applications. Typical attendants will be eager to confront the particular point of view of their discipline or area of activity in the rich cross-domain context of future Internet applications. These include GIScientists, cognitive scientists, Semantic Web researchers, Web technology and virtual community experts, creators of virtual worlds, social scientists, philosophers but, also significantly, research engineers such as for example from various industry sectors.

Submissions following the LNCS style must be submitted through EasyChair (links on the workshop's website) and categorised as one of the following:

    * Full papers (12 pages max.) on the thematic of the workshop 
      from any relevant perspective

    * Demonstration papers (6 pages max.) of prototype applications 
      (accepted submissions will be presented as a short demonstration)

    * Position papers (4 pages max.) discussing novel ideas, 
      possible experiments, and technological visions

Proceedings of the workshop will be published with

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

    * Knowledge representation for blending virtual and real space
          - Representation of physical/virtual spaces and topologies
          - Ontologies for blending virtual and real space (incl. 
            spatiotemporal ontologies, ontologies of physical and 
            virtual networks)
          - Spatial and temporal reasoning for blending virtual 
            and real space

    * Computing and applications for blending virtual and real space
          - Pervasive, Ambient, and Urban computing
          - Mobility and ubiquity
          - Impact of second-generation Web mapping applications
          - Virtual worlds, digital games and real-life 
            and technological applications

    * Digitally blended geographic environments
          - Digital urban environments
          - Geo-located services and sensors on the Web
          - Internet of Things, Internet of People, social 
            and physical blending
          - Application of Linked Data for physical and digital spaces

    * The digital, the virtual and the real
          - Digital Sense of Place and Presence
          - Virtual and real identities and places
          - Visibility and privacy in the Internet of people and things
