3rd International Workshop on Blending Physical and Digital Spaces on
the Internet (OneSpace2010)

In conjunction with the Future Internet Symposium 2010 (FIS2010)

20 September 2010, Berlin, Germany

++ Deadline for submission: July 23, 2010 ++
++ Full, demos, and position papers invited ++

The third edition of Onespace will continue to offer a venue for the
interdisciplinary exposition, exploration and cross-fertilisation of
trends in how the Internet contributes to blend and modify reality and
real-life technology, with a focus on spatial aspects. The scope will
be open to conceptual, experimental, and technological perspectives
although we envisioned, as usual, a rather applied orientation
supporting more fundamental discussions. The primary notions involved
will be those of (geo)spatial and temporal sensitivity in physical,
digital and virtual contexts, and the blending of digital and virtual
images of space and of the physical realm.

The intended audience of the workshop are researchers and
practitioners for whom spatial issues, broadly conceived, are an
important thematic in relation to their interest in the Future
Internet and Web applications. Typical attendants will be eager to
confront the particular point of view of their discipline or area of
activity in the rich cross-domain context of future Internet
applications. These include GIScientists, cognitive scientists,
Semantic Web researchers, Web technology and virtual community
experts, creators of virtual worlds, social scientists, philosophers
but, also significantly, research engineers such as for example from
various industry sectors.

Submissions following the LNCS style must be submitted through
EasyChair (links on the workshop's website) and categorised as one of
the following:

    * Full papers (12 pages max.) on the thematic of the workshop
      from any relevant perspective

    * Demonstration papers (6 pages max.) of prototype applications
      (accepted submissions will be presented as a short demonstration)

    * Position papers (4 pages max.) discussing novel ideas,
      possible experiments, and technological visions

Important dates
* Submission deadline:      	Jul 23, 2010
* Acceptance Notification:   	Aug 13, 2010
* Camera-ready paper:        	Aug 27, 2010
* Workshop date:       		Sep 20, 2010

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:

    * Knowledge representation for blending virtual and real space
          - Representation of physical/virtual spaces and topologies
          - Ontologies for blending virtual and real space (incl.
            spatiotemporal ontologies, ontologies of physical and
            virtual networks)
          - Spatial and temporal reasoning for blending virtual
            and real space

    * Computing and applications for blending virtual and real space
          - Pervasive, Ambient, and Urban computing
          - Mobility and ubiquity
          - Impact of second-generation Web mapping applications
          - Virtual worlds, digital games and real-life
            and technological applications

    * Digitally blended geographic environments
          - Digital urban environments
          - Geo-located services and sensors on the Web
          - Internet of Things, Internet of People, social
            and physical blending
          - Application of Linked Data for physical and digital spaces

    * The digital, the virtual and the real
          - Digital Sense of Place and Presence
          - Virtual and real identities and places
          - Visibility and privacy in the Internet of people and things
