2nd International Workshop on Design and Integration Principles for Smart Objects (DIPSO 2008)

In Conjunction with the Tenth International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (Ubicomp 2008)

September 21, 2008. Seoul Korea

Tagging everyday objects with sensors, actuators and building an instrumented environment are recent practices in industry and academia. In fact, the smart object domain has matured over the years. The combination of Internet and technologies like near field communications, real time localization, sensor networking etc. are bringing smart objects into commercial use. Several successful prototypes and applications have already demonstrated and deployed. However, the lack of commonality among the design principles and the underlying infrastructures of these projects is hindering the exciting future of smart object systems. We believe the primary reason behind this phenomenon is one missing rationale for the design and integration of smart objects. Now it is the time to focus on current practices and align on some key issues to continue the rapid progress of smart objects. DIPSO 2008 seeks to follow the earlier DIPSO workshop, co-located with Ubicomp 2007 and will look at the existing smart object systems to extract and extrapolate the best practices to rationalize the design and integration principles for smart objects. 


We solicit technical papers describing original, novel and previously unpublished research results. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Design, Development and Representation of Smart Objects
- Integration and Co-operation Model of Smart Objects
- Interaction Paradigm for Smart Object Systems
- Application Scenarios with Smart Objects
- User Studies on Smart Object Systems

Format and Paper Submission Guidelines

The workshop will be highly interactive to maximize information exchange and foster collaborations. Major workshop activities will take place in small discussion groups following presentations of workshop participants. Selection of workshop participants is based on submitted papers describing ongoing research and experiences. We encourage submissions from researchers, practitioners and students from academia as well as industry. An international program committee with appropriate expertise will review all papers. The ideal submission should provide an insightful survey of existing works, experience report or present concrete, significant research based on the implementation and evaluation of a smart object based working system.

All accepted workshop papers will be published in a digital workshop proceedings. Papers should be formatted according to the Word or Latex template available in the workshop website and submitted in PDF format. Papers must be no longer than 6 pages, including the abstract, all figures, and references. Submission should be done via the workshop website in .pdf format.

Distinguished papers accepted and presented in DIPSO2008, after further revisions, will be published in a special issue of International Journal of Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (IJMUE) [Confirmed]
