in conjunction with WWW 2011
******** Accepted Papers List **************
Crowdsourcing using Mechanical Turk: Quality Management and Scalability
by Prof. Panos Ipeirotis, George A. Kellner
Sensors, Networks and Internet of Things – Research Challenges in Health Care

Allen E. Pearce/Allen M. Pearce Chaired professor,
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. This intimate coupling between the cyber and physical will be manifested from the nano-world to large-scale wide-area systems. The internet transformed how humans interact and communicate with one another, revolutionized how and where information is accessed, and even changed how people buy and sell products. Similarly, CPS will transform how humans interact with and control the physical world around us. Examples of CPS include medical devices and systems, aerospace systems, transportation vehicles and intelligent highways, defense systems, robotic systems, process control, factory automation, building and environmental control and smart spaces. CPS interact with the physical world, and must operate dependably, safely, securely, and efficiently and in real-time.
This workshop, eighth in the IIWeb series, is focused on making the research in information integration on the web more relevant to the challenges in cyber physical systems that will be built to solve the critical problems that arise when we want to build a sustainable ecosystem for life on our planet. The workshop will continue its traditional themes of interest namely integration architectures, information extraction, web object extraction, record linkage, named entity extraction, source meta-data learning, query execution and optimization. However, we will give special emphasis to how this can be applied to integrating information arising from physical systems such as sensors deployed to measure flow of traffic, or measure water consumption etc.
Topics of interest, include, but are not restricted to:
· Knowledge representation in cyber physical systems
· Challenges in efficiently managing sensor data
· Challenges with managing and integrating real-time and historical data
· Novel data acquisition mechanisms such as crowd sourcing
· Mining spatio-temporal patterns and prediction of future trends
· Issues in scaling out integration solutions
· Case Studies, successes, lessons learnt
