Dear all,

Please find below the call for papers of the ISW workshop (website:
http://purl.net/ifgi/isw2011) held in conjunction with AGILE 2011
conference, in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Also, the pdf version of the call
for papers is attached for your convenience. We kindly ask you to consider
this workshop for inclusion in your schedule and to redistribute the call in
your network. We are looking forward meeting you at the workshop and at
AGILE 2011!

Integrating Sensor-Web and Web-based Geoprocessing


A workshop at AGILE 2011 conference, 18th April 2011, in Utrecht, the

The ISW workshop seeks for research presentations on the cross-road of
Sensor Web and Geoprocessing.

Geoprocessing is the application of functionality representing real-world
processes (e.g. hydrological runoff models) or processing of geodata (e.g.
generalization, (coordinate) transformation).
Providing these models and functionality on the web is a relevant topic in
research and industry, as it allows users to generate web-based information
to support decisionmaking. The Sensor Web enables discovery and tasking of
sensors as well as interoperable access to their gathered data through
common interfaces over the Web.
Web-based geoprocessing can use data published through the Sensor Web as
inputs to realize live decision support. Such integration of the two
technologies is an evolving field of research. Related applications are for
example environmental monitoring (e.g. air quality, noise, water quality),
health monitoring and risk management (e.g. forest fire).

The ISW workshop aims at research on this cross-road of Sensor Web and
Geoprocessing. In particular, this workshop aims at the following joined

(Event-based) processing of sensor data streams Uncertainty in Geoprocessing
workflows and sensor data streams Distributed Geoprocessing workflows
Sensors, Geoprocessing and Cloud Computing Self-describing sensors and
processes Concepts for integrating sensors and processing Linked data
approaches for sensors and processes Applications for processing sensor

The ISW workshop will be held as full-day event. Participants are asked to
submit extended abstracts (max. 1500 words) in advance, which will be
reviewed and selected based on scientific quality and relevance regarding
the topic of the workshop by a scientific committee. The extended abstracts
will be published as workshop proceedings (with ISBN). The participants are
invited to submit full papers based on the extended abstracts as part of a
special issue of the workshop at a scientific journal.
