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 in!

door spatial awareness.


The topics of workshop include (but are not limited to) the following topics:


* indoor spatial data models

* handling moving objects in indoor space

* positioning, tracking and navigation in indoor space

* indexing and query processing of indoor spatial databases

* construction of indoor spatial databases

* context-awareness in indoor space

* indoor space analysis

* ontology for indoor space

* interoperability and standards

* applications and services for indoor space


Information for authors

The workshop solicits regular papers and work-in-progress papers. Submissions must be original and must not be under consideration for publication in any other forum. Papers must be formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html, and are limited to 8 and 4 pages, respectively. They must be submitted in PDF format via the EasyChair system, at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isa20100.

Acceptance will be based on relevance to the workshop and technical quality, originality, and potential impact, as well as clarity of presentation. All submitted papers will be assigned to at least 3 referees.

The workshop also solicits demo papers that describe demonstrations of prototype systems of relevance to the workshop. Such papers must be formatted and submitted as described above, but are limited to 2 pages. In addition to  relevance to the workshop, acceptance will be based on perceived interest to the workshop participants and the value of the demonstration.


Authors of accepted full and work-in-progress papers will be given the opportunity to also demonstrate prototype systems at the workshop and thus do not need to also submit corresponding demo papers.

The proceedings of the workshops will be published jointly with the conference proceedings and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. One author per accepted workshop contribution is required to register for the workshop and the conference, as well as attend the workshop to present the accepted submission. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the workshop proceedings.
