Subject: FYI: Announcment of summit on interoperability, sensors, and a sensor web/net.

All -

I thought you might be interested in the following Emerging Technology Summit on Sensor Webs/Nets. This is in line with some of the recent discussions in this TC on the role of sensors and location aware devices. The announcement can be found at:

Basic information is:

Advancing the Sensor Web
April 14-15, 2005
Washington Hilton Hotel
Washington, D.C.

The next generation of applied sensor technology is emerging: Sensor webs. Sensor technologies, combined with wireless and Internet technologies, are resulting in countless location-aware sensors providing near-real-time observations and measurements of the real world through applications that leverage the power and scale of the Web. Whether your focus is SCADA, bio-threat monitoring and response, weather prediction and warning, intelligent transportation systems, or another sensor-related activity, attend this interactive, 2-day summit and improve your understanding of sensor networks.

Learn about the current use, future plans, and challenges regarding the use of sensors for improved decision-making, planning, and production from leaders in these sectors:

  • Threat detection and monitoring
  • Weather prediction and warning
  • Utilities, public works, and critical infrastructure
  • Defense and intelligence
  • Intelligent transportation
  • Mobile asset logistics and management

The OGC membership is working with a number of organizations (IEEE, OASIS, ORNL, NASA, etc) on standards for describing, discovering, accessing, and tasking sensors as part of a concept we call "Sensor Web". I believe that this work is synergistic with the work of the OASIS EM TC.
