Welcome to EuroSSC 2008

The 3rd IEEE European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context (EuroSSC) will was held from October 29-31, 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland.
This annual conference explores techniques, algorithms, architectures, protocols, and user aspects, underlying context-aware smart surroundings, and cooperating intelligent objects, and their applications to provide context-aware smart assistance.

EuroSSC was held before in Enschede (NL) and Kendal (UK). Building on the success of the last years, EuroSSC 2008 will include a highly selective single-track program for technical papers, accompanied by posters, demonstrations, invited speakers, an industrial panel, and a:

Special Session on Roadmapping the Future of Smart Sensing and Context, where the EU sensor/context communities meet to answer the next FP7 calls. (details)

We invite submission of original and unpublished work covering all areas related to smart surroundings, context-awareness and networked embedded sensor and actuator systems, in one or more of the following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
  • Context-aware actuators, interaction methods, and human aspects
  • Applications, deployment, test beds and case studies

The detailed conference description and topic list is available in the Call for Papers.
