**********************************************************************

The **3rd European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context (EuroSSC)**
will be held on October 29-31, 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland.

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, and an
industrial panel.

The vision of ubiquitous computing is that of pervasive but transparent
technology. Smart, **context-aware (wireless) sensor and actuator networks
(WS&AN)** bring the vision of ubiquitous computing closer to reality.
Emerging smart surroundings, objects and clothing contain networked
sensing and feedback elements to infer user's needs and provide targeted
context aware assistance. Networked smart sensors recognize context from
raw data and/or capitalize on context to optimize sensing. Higher-level
context is inferred online or within the network, by combining and
abstracting information from smart sensors. Together with networked
actuators, context-aware sensing and feedback becomes possible.

This annual conference explores techniques, algorithms, architectures,
protocols, and user aspects underlying context-aware smart surroundings,
and cooperating intelligent objects, and their applications.
Topics discussed include smart sensing, context recognition, and context
processing. Of growing interest are methods and principles for context
abstraction and processing given a Quality of Context that reflects
context uncertainty and accuracy of smart sensors. Principles and
methods for context-aware feedback through actuator networks and
their applications are discussed.

EuroSSC 2008 aims to bring together academic researchers and industry
experts with a variety of backgrounds to explore technology, human,
and user aspects:

* **Technology and system aspects**: concerning intelligent sensors,
sensor and actuator networks and information processing for a new
generation of networked devices and intelligent environments.
* **Human and user aspects**: exploring scenarios, applications and
interaction methods for context-aware and pro-active applications
made possible by the diffusion of ambient communication, cooperating
objects, and interaction technologies.

We welcome submission of original and unpublished **technical papers**,
**posters**, and **demonstration papers** covering all areas related to
smart surroundings, context-awareness and networked embedded sensor and
actuator systems.

The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Distributed smart sensing and context recognition
o Smart sensing: sensors inferring context and context-aware sensing
o Context-aware surroundings and infrastructures
o Distributed objects and wearables inferring context
o Algorithms and architectures
