Smart Sensing and Context are the key enablers for smarter autonomous systems, providing transparent technologies to realise the vision of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligent networks. (Wireless) sensor and actuator networks, tightly integrated into the fabric of the Internet â€“ a Real World Internet â€“ provide the underlying manifestation of the real world in the digital world. The realisation of this Real World Internet leads to emergence of smart surroundings, covered with objects and persons wearing clothing that provide networked sensing and feedback elements (through actuation) to infer user's needs and provide relevant context aware assistance. Networked smart sensors recognise context from raw data and utilise context to optimise sensing. Higher-level context is inferred locally or within a distributed network by combining and abstracting information from smart sensors.
We invite submission of original and unpublished work covering all areas related to smart surroundings, context-awareness and networked embedded sensor and actuator systems, in one or more of the following categories: technical papers, posters, and demonstrations. The topics include (but are not limited to):
* Distributed smart sensing and context recognition
* Context processing and categorisation
* Context-altering actuators, interaction methods, and human aspects
* Service environment , applications, deployment, test beds and case studies
