Call for Participation

Second ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Indoor Spatial Awareness (ISA 2010)

In conjunction with ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2010

November 2, 2010, San Jose, CA, USA

Invited Speakers

Workshop aim

With the rapid progress of location based services, geographic information systems, and ubiquitous computing technologies, the space that we are dealing with is no longer limited to outdoor space but being extended to indoor space. Indoor space has some differences from outdoor space, most notably by its relevant third dimension, but also by its privately regulated accessibility. Therefore to provide integrated seamless services across spaces it is required to establish new theories, data models, and systems. For this reason, research has begun to extend the scope of LBS and GIS to indoor space for the applications such as indoor orientation and navigation services, emergency management, indoor space management and 3D cadastre. This workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners carrying out research and development related to the topic of indoor spatial awareness and to provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussions in all aspects of indoor spatial awareness.

The papers of this workshop were carefully peer-reviewed by three members of the program committee. Seven out of ten submitted papers were selected for presentation after revisions made to respond to the reviews. In addition, an invited talk by Lars Kulik and a keynote talk by Benjamin Kuipers are included in the program and proceedings.The proceedings of the workshops will be published jointly with the conference proceedings and will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
