CFP: 2nd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence
2nd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Ambient Intelligence
In conjunction with PDCAT'09
December 8-11, 2009, Hiroshima, Japan

In cooperation with: IEEE ComSoc Japan Chapter

Call for Papers
Sensors are windows to the physical world for ambient intelligence (AmI) 
applications. The recent emergence of networked sensors as a result of rapid 
advances in sensor technologies and wireless networks, have set the stage 
for the realization of smart environments where unobtrusive sensors, either 
embedded or transportable by mobile carriers, enables fine-grain capture of 
environmental or ambient information that provides the basis of intelligence 
for higher-order cognitive systems, i.e. systems with capabilities to 
perceive, reason, learn, and react intelligently to their environment. Such 
systems in turn are envisioned to have wide ranging applications from 
intelligent wildlife and building structure monitoring to humanistic and 
social endevours such as health and elderly care service provisioning.

Following the success of the first SeNAmI at PDCAT 2008 in Dunedin, New 
Zealand, this workshop 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 ambient intelligence 
systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Cognitive wireless sensor networks
- Cooperative sensor localization and target tracking
- Context-aware reasoning and inference for sensor/RFID-based systems
- Cross-layer design and optimization of sensor-based AmI systems
- Intelligent agents for autonomous sensor network management
- Sensor networking in heterogeneous wireless environments
- Sensor data fusion for ubiquitous embedded computing
- Security, trust, and privacy for autonomous smart spaces
- Nature or bio-inspired designs for ambient sensing and intelligence
- AmI architectures, platforms, applications, and services
- Prototype or testbed implementation and deployment trials

Manuscript submission
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results and experience 
are solicited. All paper submissions will be handled electronically via 
EasyChair. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society proceedings guidelines to 
prepare your papers. Maximum page length will be limited to 6 pages. 
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings of PDCAT'09, 
which will be published by IEEE Computer Society and automatically included 
in the IEEE Xplore digital library. The proceedings will also be cited by 
IEE INSPEC, EI (Compendex), and Thomson ISI. Extended version of selected 
best papers will be considered for publication in a refereed international 
journal (TBA).

Important dates
Paper submission due    : July 21, 2009 (extended)
Acceptance notification : August 21, 2009
Camera-ready due        : September 1, 2009
Workshop date             : TBA
