The Second International Workshop on Web Intelligence and Smart Sensing (IWWISS’15)
will be held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (Mobiquitous 2015)in Coimbra, Portugal on 22nd July, 2015.
Accepted workshop papers are included in the adjunct proceedings of the Mobiquitous conference and will be accessible via the ACM digital library.

Objectives of the Workshop

Researchers in sensing technologies provide technological means to capture environmental, technical, physiological and other data. They provide the raw material on which applications and services will be built. Sensor data is the 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.
Streaming data analysis, knowledge extraction (data mining, machine learning) and complex event processing are required to treat and preprocess these data, to detect correlations in data and to discover patterns or abnormalities in dynamically evolving situations. Data files as well as data streams need to be treated, variety of representation are used depending on the Web-based systems and the means for handling, storing and accessing this information to make valuable decisions need to be studied.
Semantic web technologies have provided particle means to this aim. Social applications, Internet of things, ubiquitous and pervasive computing are examples of areas making use of semantised sensed or processed data. Semantisation, privacy, trust, context awareness, community management, and data visualization are the core issues related to this area. 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 and demos/posters.
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.
