2nd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence
In conjunction with PDCAT'09
http://www.cs.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/pdcat09/
December 8-11, 2009, Hiroshima, Japan

Call for Papers
Sensors are windows to the physical world for ambient intelligence (AmI)
applications. The recent emergence of networked sensors as a result of rapid
advances in sensor technologies and wireless networks, have set the stage
for the realization of smart environments where unobtrusive sensors, either
embedded or transportable by mobile carriers, enables fine-grain capture of
environmental or ambient information that provides the basis of intelligence
for higher-order cognitive systems, i.e. systems with capabilities to
perceive, reason, learn, and react intelligently to their environment. Such
systems in turn are envisioned to have wide ranging applications from
intelligent wildlife and building structure monitoring to humanistic and
social endevours such as health and elderly care service provisioning.

Following the success of the first SeNAmI at PDCAT 2008 in Dunedin, New
Zealand, this workshop once again aims to bring together researchers from
academia and industry to present and discuss recent trends and advances in
sensor networks and ambient intelligence, and from such engagement foster
innovations towards technology maturity of sensor-based ambient intelligence
systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Cognitive wireless sensor networks
- Cooperative sensor localization and target tracking
- Context-aware reasoning and inference for sensor/RFID-based systems
- Cross-layer design and optimization of sensor-based AmI systems
- Intelligent agents for autonomous sensor network management
- Sensor networking in heterogeneous wireless environments
- Sensor data fusion for ubiquitous embedded computing
- Security, trust, and privacy for autonomous smart spaces
- Nature or bio-inspired designs for ambient sensing and intelligence
- AmI architectures, platforms, applications, and services
- Prototype or testbed implementation and deployment trials

Manuscript submission
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and experience
are solicited. All paper submissions will be handled electronically via
EasyChair. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society proceedings guidelines to
prepare your papers. Maximum page length will be limited to 6 pages.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings of PDCAT'09,
which will be published by IEEE Computer Society and automatically included
in the IEEE Xplore digital library. The proceedings will also be cited by
IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Extended version of selected
best papers will be considered for publication in a refereed international
journal (TBA).
