Call for Papers!

Intelligent Sensing, Situation Management, and Impact Assessment


Abstracts Due:  29 September 2008

Manuscripts Due: 26 January 2009

Situation Management is new discipline which is driven by the intersecting advances of sensor networks, real-time event management, and knowledge-based situation awareness. The goal of Situation Management is to form information-rich real-time pictures of operational theatres such as needed in homeland security, disaster recovery, cyber security, and network centric warfare. These pictures are developed as a set of situations that are built from large-scale real-time data sources, rich models, and intelligent analysis.

This conference will bring together researchers to discuss the latest results in these important issues. Submissions are sought in related areas including the following:

  • large-scale sensor-based data collection architectures
  • measurement and sensing grids
  • sensor network configuration management and self-healing sensor networks
  • intelligent, autonomic and self-organizing sensing and sensor networks
  • event representation
  • distributed event-driven systems
  • temporal and spatial event correlation algorithms
  • situation monitoring and awareness
  • formal methods of situation modeling and reasoning
  • reactive, deliberative and reflective situation management
  • situation awareness in incomplete, inexact and probabilistic environments
  • agent-based situation management
  • threat situation prediction, vulnerability analysis and impact assessment
  • situation modeling languages, tools and platforms
  • situation management knowledge representation and ontologies
  • integration with Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and enterprise event processors
  • visualization GIS, and localization technologies (including GPS and RFID) in situation management
  • peer-to-peer architectures for situation awareness
  • situation management in tactical, ad hoc, sensor and mobile networks
  • applications in cyber security, disaster response, crises management, home land security, intelligent transportation, industry and health care
  • deployment experience and testbeds.

All papers should be formatted and submitted according to the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2009 guidelines and will be reviewed by the technical program committee.
