Sensing technologies have become an important field for computer science and technologies as seen in the Internet of Things (IoT) age. Sensing is the key to acquiring the real-world data and it is a basis for the smart world. Due to various characteristics of sensor data and their corresponding processing requirements, such as multisource, heterogeneous, real-time, volumnous, continuous, streaming, ever-expanding and spatio-temporal, many traditional data processing and integration approaches begin to show their limitations, particularly when dealing with situations like sensor data and its application deluge. We also see a rapidly growing growth in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies and they are inevitable for means for interpreting and utilizing sensor data. We aim to find bring together topics from several layers of data processing; from devices to services to enable novel ideas and collaboration combining the information from multiple sources.
The workshop intends to provide a forum for exchange of experience among researchers from industry and academia actively involved in research, development and evaluation of new concepts, theoretical methods and experimental characterization and for debating different innovative solutions. Practitioners involved in applications domains are also welcome to present their tasks and to participate these discussions. The workshop will feature a selective technical program consisting of regular research papers as well position talks.
We invite authors to submit original research as well as review articles, posters and demos to present latest progresses, determine future goals, and show techniques for future development in the field.
