Final CFP: Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence (August 15, 2010)

Boon-Chong Seet
CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence (SeNAmI 2010)
In conjunction with IEEE/IFIP EUC 2010: http://www.euc2010.org
Hong Kong SAR, China, December 11-13, 2010


Advances in low-cost embedded processors and wireless communications have fuelled the recent intense development of sensor networks, which has potential to offer unobtrusive and transparent personal and ambient sensing infrastructures that are vital to the creation of the envisioned ubiquitous computing fabric for ambient intelligence (AmI).

The continued miniaturization and integration of sensors at unprecedented scale and density into our everyday objects and environments would soon enable the fine-grain capture of personal and ambient context information that provides the basis of intelligence for higher-order cognitive systems, i.e. systems with the ability to perceive, reason, learn, and react intelligently to their environments in order to make the most appropriate decisions or to take the best actions that concern the humans at the centre of their support or care.

Following the success of the inaugural SeNAmI workshop in Dunedin, New Zealand in 2008, and the second SeNAmI workshop in Hiroshima, Japan, in 2009, this event 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 AmI systems and applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Cognitive wireless sensor networks
- Sensor networking with context and ambient awareness
- Nature or bio-inspired designs for ambient sensing and intelligence
- Cross-layer design and optimization of sensor-based AmI systems
- Reasoning and inference for sensor/RFID-based systems
- Multi-modal sensor fusion for smart environments
- Cyber-physical systems for human-centric applications
- Ambient energy harvesting and energy-efficiency issues for sensor networks
- Sensor or sensor-embedded object localization and target tracking
- Cooperative in-network sensor information processing
- Intelligent and mobile agents for embedded ubiquitous computing
- Sensor networking in heterogeneous environments
- Privacy, security, and trust management
- AmI architectures, platforms, applications, and services
- Prototypes, testbeds, and real-world deployments


IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission due          : August 15, 2010 (extended, firmed deadline)
Acceptance notification       : September 24, 2010
Camera-ready due               : October 10, 2010
Workshop date                    : TBA


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and experience are solicited. All paper submissions will be handled electronically via EasyChair.

Please prepare your paper following the IEEE Computer Society proceedings guidelines. Maximum page length may be limited to 6 pages.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings of the IEEE/IFIP EUC 2010, which will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and digitally archived in IEEE Xplore library. Proceedings published by IEEE will be indexed by major bibliographic services such as IET INSPEC, Thomson ISI Proceedings (ISTP), and EI Compendex.

Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended version of their papers for publication in a theme issue in ACM/Springer Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, or in a special issue in the International Journal of Sensor Networks (IJSNet). Both Journals are indexed by the Science Citation Index (SCI).
