Call for Papers

During the past years, sensing technologies have become an important field in computer science and technologies as seen in the trend of cyber physical systems (CPS), machine-to-machine (M2M) systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Researchers in sensing technologies provide technological means to capture environmental, technical, physiological and other data. They provide the raw materials on which smart applications and services will be built. Sensor data are the basis for the smart world. Due to various characteristics of sensor data and their corresponding processing requirements, such as multisource, heterogeneous, real-time, voluminous, continuous, streaming, ever-expanding and spatio-temporal, many traditional data processing and integration approaches begin to show their limitations, particularly when dealing with situations like sensor data and its application deluge.

Streaming data analysis, knowledge extraction (data mining, machine learning) and complex event processing are required to treat and preprocess these data, to detect correlations in data and to discover patterns or abnormalities in dynamically evolving situations. Data files as well as data streams need to be treated. A variety of representations exist depending on the Web-based systems, thus, the means for handling, storing and accessing this information to make valuable decisions need to be studied.

Semantic web technologies have provided particular means to this aim. Social applications, and ubiquitous and pervasive computing are examples of areas making use of semantised sensed or processed data. Semantisation, privacy, trust, context awareness, community management, and data visualization are the core issues related to this area. We aim to bring together topics from several layers of data processing; from devices to services to enable novel ideas and collaboration combining the information from multiple sources.

The workshop intends to provide a forum for exchange of experience among researchers from industry and academia actively involved in research, development and evaluation of new concepts, theoretical methods and experimental characterization and for debating different innovative solutions. Practitioners involved in applications domains are also welcome to present their tasks and to participate in these discussions. The workshop will feature a selective technical program consisting of regular research papers as well position talks.

We invite authors to submit original research to present latest progresses, determine future goals, and show techniques for future development in the field.

Topics of the Workshop

IWSSS '19 is intended to foster the dissemination of research in at least one of the three areas below. Especially, those papers will be considered interesting, which study the aspects of multidisciplinary topics.

Paper Submission Guidelines

All paper submissions will be reviewed by at least two program committee members. Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the submission site shown below. All submissions must describe original research, not published or currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.

Paper Format

Authors wishing to participate in this event should format their papers according to the IOS Press style, with a length of at least 6 but no more than 10 pages. Latex and Word templates can be found in http://www.iospress.nl/service/authors/latex-and-word-tools-for-book-authors.
