About these proceedings
On behalf of the organizing committee for EuroSSC 2007, we would like to welcome you to the proceedings of the second European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context. Although only in its second year, EuroSSC has already begun to attract significant interest from researchers in the rapidly evolving area of embedded sensing and intelligent objects in support of smart surroundings. Building on the success of the previous conference held in Enschede, The Netherlands, EuroSSC 2007 aimed to reflect two complementary viewpoints: a technology-driven viewpoint which encompasses the diversity of intelligent sensing and associated information processing and a user-driven viewpoint exploring scenarios, applications and interaction methods as they relate to smart surroundings. This year the conference received a total of 51 paper submissions. These represented contributions from 21 countries from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (69%); Asia (21%); and North America (10%). This obviously reflects the European origins of the conference. However we were particularly pleased by the high number of submissions from Asia reflecting the range and diversity of relevant work in that region. From these the program committee selected 17 papers (33%) for presentation at the conference after a rigorous review process. Every paper received at least three independent reviews, most received four and some five reviews.
