Dr. Alain Crevoisier: Transforming Daily Life Objects into Tactile Interfaces
Thursday, 09:00 to 10:00
Prof. Elgar Fleisch: When the Internet of Things Meets Business
Research labs: www.autoidlabs.org, www.i-lab.ch, www.bitstoenergy.ch
Abstract: The presentation starts with a drafting the general business impact of the vision of the Internet of Things. It describes machine sensing as a key enabler to emerging industrial applications. In a second part some of the potential mass applications are described in more detail and used as a starting point to derive future research fields in technical and application oriented domains.
Thursday, 14:00 to 15:00
Prof. Alcherio Martinoli: Distributed Robotic Systems, a Peculiar Form of Sensor and Actuator Networks
Abstract: In this talk, I will first highlight the challenges related to the design, control, evaluation, optimization, and scalability of distributed robotic systems. In particular, I will describe selected model-based and machine-learning-based methods we have developed in order to address such challenges. I will support the discussion with a few recent case studies concerned with distributed sensing and manipulation missions. Finally, I will extrapolate a few lessons we learned from distributed robotics and speculate on their potential application to further domains of interest in the broader area of sensor and actuator networks.
The EuroSSC special session "Roadmapping the future of smart sensing and context" is a combined networking and panel discussion session.
It is a platform for participants at EuroSSC to present and discuss research trends, more concrete research ideas, business cases related to "smart sensing and context".
It gives the participants the possibility to meet interested parties. This may foster new collaborations, new European research projects, and the discussion will provide participants new insights and ideas.
The session moderator is Dr. Jamie Ward, from the University of Lancaster (UK), who is expert in context-aware systems. Patrick Furrer, the Swiss National Contact Point ICT Euresearch will introduce the Work Programme 2009-10.
The session is organized as follows:
- ELEVATOR PITCHES: First participants can present a research vision or project idea on one slide (2mn per participant)
- PANEL/DISCUSSION: Afterwards the session is open for discussion to the panel and participants.
- SOCIAL DINNER: The session is followed by the conference social dinner that will allow further discussions.

The EuroSSC Program Committee has selected the following 17 papers (25% of submissions) for inclusion into the program of EuroSSC 2008.
Each papers has a slot of 25 minutes for presentation and questions. The papers will be presented in the following sessions:
