CALL FOR PAPERS: 7th International Workshop on Semantic Sensor Networks, Oct19, 2014 Riva del Garda, Trentino, ITALY-EXTENDED DEADLINE

In conjunction with the 13th International Semantic Web Conference ISWC2014

The number of IP connected devices will be nearly three times the global population by 2016 and a 
growing amount of Internet traffic is originating with non-PC devices.  Many of these devices can 
act as sensors and there may be trillions of fixed sensors by 2020.   Such sensors are 
geographically distributed and are capable of forming ad hoc networks, with nodes expected to be 
dynamically inserted and removed.  This diverse, changing environment provides many interesting 

While frameworks such as the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards, developed by the Open 
Geospatial Consortium, provide some interoperability, semantics is increasingly seen as a key 
enabler forintegration of sensor data and broader Web information systems. Analytical and 
reasoning capabilities afforded by Semantic Web standards and technologies are considered 
important for developing advanced applications that go from capturing observations to recognition 
of events and ultimately developing comprehensive situational awareness.  Defense, transportation, 
global enterprise, and natural resource management industries are leading the rapid emergence of 
applications in commercial, civic, and scientific operations that involve sensors, web services 
and semantics. Semantic technologies are often proposed as important components of complex, 
cross-jurisdictional, heterogeneous, dynamic information systems. The needs and opportunities 
arising from the rapidly growing capabilities of networked sensing devices are a challenging case.

SSN 2014 aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum to explore and promote the technologies 
related to a combination of the semantic web, sensor networking and sensors in the Internet of 
Things. Specifically, to develop an understanding of the ways semantic web technologies can 
contribute to the growth, application and deployment of large-scale sensor networks on the one 
hand, and the ways that sensor networks can contribute to the emerging semantic web, on the other.

Topics of Interest:

- Semantic support for Sensor Web Enablement
- Semantic integration in heterogeneous sensor networks
- Semantic web services architectures for sensor networks
- Semantic discovery of sensors, sensor data and services
- Linked Data and Data Cubes for sensor networks
- Integration of semantic sensor networks with Internet/Web of Things
- Semantic reasoning for network topology management
- Experience in sensor network applications of semantic technologies
- Citizen sensors, participatory sensing and social sensing
- Semantic algorithms for data fusion and situation awareness
- Rule-based sensor systems
- Semantic policy management in shared networks
- Semantic approaches to status monitoring and configuration of sensor systems
- Spatio-temporal reasoning in sensor networks
- Reasoning with incomplete or uncertain information in sensor networks
- Semantic middleware for active and passive sensor networks
- Ontologies for sensor and RFID networks
- Semantic feedback and control
- Emergent semantics and ambient intelligence in sensor systems
- Scalability, security, trust and privacy in semantic sensor networks
- Sensors and observations for symbol grounding
- Semantic sensor context management and provenance
- Semantic web in sensor data mashups
