A workshop at AGILE 2011 conference, 18th April 2011, in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The ISW workshop seeks for research presentations on the cross-road of Sensor Web and Geoprocessing.
Geoprocessing is the application of functionality representing real-world processes (e.g. hydrological runoff models) or processing of geodata (e.g. generalization, (coordinate) transformation). Providing these models and functionality on the web is a relevant topic in research and industry, as it allows users to generate web-based information to support decisionmaking. The Sensor Web enables discovery and tasking of sensors as well as interoperable access to their gathered data through common interfaces over the Web. Web-based geoprocessing can use data published through the Sensor Web as inputs to realize live decision support. Such integration of the two technologies is an evolving field of research. Related applications are for example environmental monitoring (e.g. air quality, noise, water quality), health monitoring and risk management (e.g. forest fire).
The ISW workshop aims at research on this cross-road of Sensor Web and Geoprocessing. In particular, this workshop aims at the following joined aspects:
- (Event-based) processing of sensor data streams
- Uncertainty in Geoprocessing workflows and sensor data streams
- Distributed Geoprocessing workflows
- Sensors, Geoprocessing and Cloud Computing
- Self-describing sensors and processes
- Concepts for integrating sensors and processing
- Linked data approaches for sensors and processes
- Applications for processing sensor data
The ISW workshop will be held as full-day event. Participants are asked to submit extended abstracts (max. 1500 words) in advance, which will be reviewed and selected based on scientific quality and relevance regarding the topic of the workshop by a scientific committee. The extended abstracts will be published as workshop proceedings (with ISBN). The participants are invited to submit full papers based on the extended abstracts as part of a special issue of the workshop at a scientific journal.
Important dates Deadline extended abstracts (max. 1500 words): 28.02.2011 Notification of acceptance: 22.03.2011 Camera-ready version: 10.04.2011 Workshop date: 18.04.2011.
