2nd International Workshop on
Knowledge Discovery from Sensor Data
(Sensor-KDD 2008)

LAS VEGAS | 24 - 27 AUGUST 2008











KDD 2008






Call for Papers

Wide-area sensor infrastructures, remote sensors, and wireless sensor networks, RFIDs, yield massive volumes of disparate, dynamic, and geographically distributed data. As such sensors are becoming ubiquitous, a set of broad requirements is beginning to emerge across high-priority applications including disaster preparedness and management, adaptability to climate change, national or homeland security, and the management of critical infrastructures. The raw data from sensors need to be efficiently managed and transformed to usable information through data fusion, which in turn must be converted to predictive insights via knowledge discovery, ultimately facilitating automated or human-induced tactical decisions or strategic policy based on decision sciences and decision support systems.

The main motivation for this year workshop stems from the increasing need for a forum to exchange ideas and recent research results, and to facilitate collaboration and dialog between academia, government, and industrial stakeholders. This is clearly reflected in the successful organization of the first workshop along with KDD-2007, which was attended by more than seventy registered participants.
