The era of ubiquitous sensing has begun recently thanks to the proliferation of wireless sensors. For instance, modern smartphones are equipped with a variety of sensors that can be used to continuously monitor activities and locations of the users, and a rapidly growing number of sensors are embedded into the physical world for monitoring of our living environments. Ubiquitous sensing promises to enhance awareness of the cyber, physical, and social contexts of our daily activities, thus providing supports for services and applications that will change our lives.
This special issue aims to collect recent research results that address key issues and topics related to ubiquitous sensing. We recommend authors provide as much details as possible, extended long research papers or comprehensive reviews (tutorial and survey papers approximately 30-50 pages each are particularly welcome.
In addition to open submissions, authors of selected papers published in the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom 2011; http://cpscom.org) and the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2011; http://ieee-iot.org) will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to this special issue for consideration. Manuscripts from the conferences must have at least 40% extension compared with the conference versions.
