                              CALL FOR PAPERS

            The 8th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC),
                           *Sensor Web Track*
                May 29 - June 2, 2011, Heraklion, Greece

*  Abstract submission: December 6, 2010 (compulsory) *
*  Full-paper submission: December 13, 2010 (11:59 pm Hawaii time) *

*Sensor Web Track*

The correct interpretation and analysis of the raw numerical values 
provided by the ever more pervasive sensor networks requires proper 
semantics support and contextual knowledge. This enables better data 
representation, integration, and use, and further aids in coping with 
the inherently unreliable nature of the observations provided by sensor 
networks, affected by sensor noise and faults. In this track we invite 
approaches dealing with combining sensor network and semantic 
technologies, for the purpose of management, interpretation and analysis 
of the observed environment. Contributions are expected to cover a wide 
range of related topics such as (a)identification of simple events or 
event streams by joining sensor data with background knowledge, (b) 
identification of complex events composed from several atomic sensed 
events based on background knowledge, (c) filtering, management, and 
interpretation of sensor data using contextual models, (d) creation of 
actuators and applications based on sensor data and background 
knowledge. We also particularly welcome solutions that address one or 
more of the above challenges by means of in-network processing techniques.

*Topics of Interest*

We invite high-quality submissions related to (but not limited to) one 
or more of the following topics:
- Data models and querying solutions for semantic sensor networks
- Programming languages and abstractions for sensor network supporting 
contextual and background models
- Architectures and middleware for semantic sensor networks
- In-network data processing and filtering techniques based on 
contextual and semantic knowledge
- Ontologies and rules for semantic sensor networks
- Annotation tools for semantic sensor networks
- Semantic data integration and fusion of heterogeneous sensor network 
data streams
- Spatio-temporal aspects of semantic sensor networks
- Filtering techniques for sensor network data based on contextual knowledge
- Mash-up technologies for semantic sensor networks
- Use cases and applications demonstrating the use of semantic 
technologies combined with sensor networks
- Social sensing data architectures and applications
- Standardization efforts in semantic sensor networks
- Visualisation of semantic sensor data

*Submission Details*

The proceedings of the conference will be published in Springer's 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Papers must not exceed fifteen 
(15) pages in length and must be formatted according to the information 
for LNCS authors. At least one author of each accepted paper must 
register for the conference in order for the paper to be included in the 
conference proceedings. Papers for the Sensor Web track should be 
submitted at:
