WORKSHOP AIMS AND SCOPE

This workshop addresses issues related to the collection, management, processing, 
analysis, and delivery of real-time geospatial data using distributed geosensor 
networks (e.g. GPS receivers, micro-sensors for biological and chemical 
substance monitoring, geolocated still and video cameras). This represents 
an evolution of the traditional static and centralized geocomputational 
paradigm, to support the collection of both temporally and spatially high 
resolution, up-to-date data over a broad geographic area, and to use sensor 
networks as actuators in geographic space. These sensors can be static or 
mobile, and can be used to passively collect information about the environment 
or even to actively influence it.

The research challenges behind this novel paradigm extend the frontiers 
of traditional GIS research further into computer science, addressing 
issues like data stream processing, mobile computing, location-based 
services, temporal-spatial queries over geosensor networks, adaptable 
middleware, sensor data integration and mining, automated updating of 
geospatial databases, VR modeling, and computer vision. In order to 
address these topics, the workshop will bring together leading experts 
in these fields, and provide a 3 day forum to present papers and exchange 
ideas. This interaction will provide a better understanding of research 
challenges related to the use of sensor networks for geospatial applications, 
and of the potential offered by geospatial analysis capabilities to improve 
sensor network management and analysis.


TOPICS

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following as they 
relate to spatiotemporal applications and geosensor networks:

* Data mining across sensor themes
* Modeling spatio-temporal data streams
* Data stream processing
* Handling uncertainty and imprecision in geospatial data
* Intelligent sensors/sensor fusion
* Location-based queries
* Middleware for pervasive computing
* Mobile computing
* Peer-to-peer collaboration strategies using geospatial information
* Queries (aggregate and statistical) and reasoning over data streams
* Query optimization over sensor networks
* Real-time updating of geospatial databases
* Sensor information management systems
* Spatiotemporal sensor data mining
* Video and motion imagery analysis for real-time scene and event modeling and monitoring
* Virtual modeling of large geographic areas
* Time geography
* Privacy, geo-privacy

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS AND PROCEEDINGS

We are soliciting the following types of submissions:

* regular, scientific papers reporting on original research results (up to 12 pages),

* short papers or extended abstracts (2-4 pages) that serve as position papers or 
present work-in-progress,

* demo proposals (up to 4 pages) that describe systems/prototypes to be 
demonstrated at the conference.

In addition to the three types of paper submissions, proposals for panels 
on emerging or controversial topics are also especially welcome.

Submissions will be handled electronically. Research paper submissions
should be formatted in the ACM proceedings format and must not exceed
the corresponding page limits. Each paper will be assigned for reviewing 
to at least three members of the program committee.

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop, will appear in
the informal workshop proceedings. Selected papers will be published as
part of the post-proceedings.

Detailed submission information will be posted on the conference web
site.
