Abstract Submission Deadline: January 16, 2009
Paper Submission Deadline: January 26, 2009
The Open Geospatial
Consortium, Inc’s Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards enable developers
to make all types of sensors, transducers, and sensor data repositories
discoverable, accessible, and useable via the Web. The SWE effort
involves OGC members in developing the global framework of standards
and best practices that make linking diverse sensor related technologies
fast and practical. Standards make it possible for users to assemble
sensor systems and components together efficiently; protect investments;
reduce likelihood of dead-end technologies, products or approaches;
allow for future expansion and encourage collaboration between Sensor
Web components and users.
The first elements
of the standards began to appear about four years ago in 2005.
While the standards have continued to evolve and mature as they make
their way through the OGC process, various user communities have applied
the standards with and without open source implementations. The
purpose of this special session is to take a broad review of the SWE
standards, as well as exchange experiences, present results and concepts
on how the standards might be utilized to develop robust, collaborative
systems of sensor systems.
SWE applications; environments; sensor types; usage techniques; implementations
including private, commercial, and open source; goals; results; use
of newer technologies (e.g., semantic SOA, semantic web); enhancements
and extensions (including use of ontologies, support for semantic annotations,
Semantic Sensor Web or Semantic Sensor Networks) experiences and potential
future directions for this exciting collaboration standard.
Authors should submit abstracts (title, authors, abstract of upto 350 words, up to 6 keywords) for their original papers to the workshop via the EasyChair submission system by January 16, 2009, and upload the full paper by the extended/hard deadline of January 26, 2009. Electronic (pdf) submissions are encouraged and should be submitted at EasyChair SWE2009 page. Papers submitted for review should not exceed 10 pages in IEEE single-spaced, double-column format. Submissions should also include the title, authors name, affiliation, e-mail address, fax number and postal address. In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author is responsible for correspondence should also be included. For details on submitting via the EasyChair system please look at the detailed submission instructions. If accepted, the final manuscript will be uploaded by March 6 via the conference Web site. If it is impossible to use electronic submission system, send information by email [include in Subject: SWE2009] to Ken Allen [firstname.lastname@example.org] with a copy to Tonya Davis [email@example.com].
with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive a minimum
of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.
Initial selection will be based on full papers. Submission implies
the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present
the paper, once accepted. All accepted papers are required to
be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted
on the CTS 2009 Symposium web site later. Proceedings and its papers will be cataloged in IEEE Digital Library.
