                          Call for Papers

    2nd International Workshop on SensorWebs, Databases and Mining
    in Networked Sensing Systems (SWDMNSS 2008)
                  http://www.osoite.jp/SWDMNSS08/

                 in conjunction with SAINT 2008
                   July 28  - August 1,  2008
                          Turku, Finland
***********************************************************************

The development and deployment of sensor networking technologies brought
the emergence of Internet-wide infrastructure for networked sensing systems
and a collection of heterogeneous sensor networks. In this situation, a
sensor network or a collection of distributed sensor networks is one of
tremendous information resources on the Internet. This SensorWeb can
provide
real-time and historical information representing situations, contexts and
changes in the real world. It is essential to tap this information resource
in order to make networked sensing systems accessible and useable in a
large
variety of applications.
Sensor networks may be virtually regarded as an enormous database that can
provide dynamic real-world information. There are great potentials in all
areas of life, if people are able to query and search such information
resources as they do it nowadays on the world-wide-web. In addition, the
searched results should be provided in an understandable and potentially
machine re-usable form. For instance, aggregated, summarized or symbolized
sensor information is more useful for understanding complex phenomena than
raw sensor information. Such information integration will be brought by
novel methods for data mining and information extraction specifically
tailored to networked sensing systems.
In addition, information integration utilizing the world-wide-web may
allow to
combine sensor-specific querying techniques, e.g. according to geographic
location, and web search engines, e.g. focusing on content, in order to
approach an integrated real world search engine. In order to realize such
real-world searching on networked sensing systems, some technologies from
different research fields are required: a) network technologies to
integrate
and overlay heterogeneous sensor networks, b) database technologies to
manage
and search spatial and temporal information, c) mining technologies to
extract useful information from sensor databases and other related
resources.
This workshop aims to bring together technical papers about networks,
databases and data mining for spatial and temporal information and discuss
technical issues on integrating sensor networks, databases and Internet
technologies. This workshop will open-up a novel and interdisciplinary
research area for networked sensing systems covering different research
fields such as networks and SensorWebs, databases, information integration
and web engineering. It provides the opportunity to discuss key
technologies
for searching the real-world information provided by networked sensing
systems.
Our workshop will focus on data-driven and data-centric aspects of
networked
sensing systems rather than sensor devices and hardware architecture for
networked sensing systems. Original papers on database and network
technologies
for spatial and temporal information (e.g. sensor data, stream data,
time-series data, geographic information and web information) are welcome.

Topics of this workshop are the following (but are not limited):

* Sensor databases: managing, archiving and searching sensing data
* Spatial and temporal databases for networked sensing system
* Query processing architecture for spatial and temporal data
* Mining, aggregation and integration of spatial and temporal data
* Stream data processing and mining
* Data representation and query description language for networked
sensing system
* Overlay network and P2P technologies for networked sensing system
* Integration of heterogeneous sensor networks
* Software architectures for sensor networks and databases
* Networked sensing system for mobile and ubiquitous computing
* Text mining, language processing, information extraction on the Web
* Sensor data integration, mapping and visualization
* Sensor web enablement and standardization
* Location-based services and geographic information systems (SensorGIS)
* Experiences on the deployment and experiments of sensor networks
