Workshop Sensing A Changing World

19 - 21 November 2008 - Centre for Geo-Information - Wageningen, The Netherlands

Summary

Current developments in sensor technology provide increasing opportunities to analyze human behavior and monitor environmental processes in a changing world.
Access to vast amounts of data from mobile (e.g., gps, mobile phones), in situ (e.g., meteorological, groundwater, seismic) and remote sensing sensors provides scientific researchers with complex but very interesting spatial-temporal data sets. However, the challenge will be to develop concepts and applications that can provide timely and on-demand knowledge to end-users in different domains and at a range of scale-levels.

At this moment various communities show interest in sensor networks from different perspectives. This workshop has the objective to elucidate common concepts on aspects like data communication, processing, standardization, knowledge discovery, representation, and visualization. The workshop results in an overview of the state-of-the art developments and identification of future research challenges to improve the application of sensor webs in the environmental sciences domains. The workshop brings together researchers, technology developers and users of different involved disciplines and provides a forum for fruitful discussions. If you would like to participate in the workshop please register yourself via the workshop website.

During the workshop key-note speakers provide an overview state-of-the-art developments, impact and challenges for sensor web technology in different application fields: urban, water, environment, transportation, agriculture, tourism etc. In addition to the presentations, there will be ample time to discuss relevant issues and open questions.

Keywords

We encourage the submission of both conceptual and application oriented contributions for the following topics (but are not limited to):

  • Knowledge discovery from sensory data sets
  • Scale issues in the processing and application of spatial temporal sensory data.
  • Real-time and on-demand representation and visualization of sensor data
  • Information extraction from sensor network data
  • Integration of sensor webs and dynamical modeling
  • Development of location and movement based services
  • Standardized access to sensor data and the linkage to spatial data infrastructures
  • Application of mobile sensor based tracking applications ( transportation, urban, tourism, cellular census, location based services etc.)
  • In situ and earth observation sensor applications (groundwater, air-quality, river management, agriculture, extreme events etc.)
