CFP: First Joint International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks and Terra Cognita 2015
First Joint International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks and Terra Cognita In Conjunction with the 14th International Semantic Web Conference October 11-15, 2015 Bethlehem, PA, USA
The wide availability of technologies such as GPS, map services and social networks, has resulted in the proliferation of geospatial data on the Web. Similarly, the amount of geospatial data extracted from the Web and published as Linked Data is increasing. Together with large volumes of machine-generated data from sensor networks and the emerging internet of things, these continually growing data have given rise to a number of innovative services and applications.
This workshop aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum to explore and promote the technologies related to a combination of semantic web, geospatial web and sensor networking. Specifically, to develop an understanding of the ways semantic web technologies can contribute to the growth, integration and deployment of geospatial applications. As a joint workshop, it will explore both foundational technologies of the Semantic Geospatial Web and applications of semantic technologies to large-scale sensor networks and the emerging web of things.
Submissions are invited for a broad range of topics, ranging from user- generated geospatial content, mobile data management, and linked geospatial data to emergent semantics and ambient intelligence in sensor systems, integration of semantic sensor networks with the web of things, and OGC and W3C technologies and standards.
Research papers (max. 12 pages) and demo papers (max. 5 pages) are both due by July 6, 2015.
Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines and be submitted in PDF using the EasyChair system:
The workshop is chaired by: Kostis Kyzirakos, Cory Henson, Matthew Perry, Dalia Varanka, Rolf Gruetter
Amit Sheth, Manfred Hauswirth, and Kerry Taylor serve as advisors.
