Deadline is extended to July 5, 2009.
The combination of Internet and technologies like near field communications, real time localization, sensor networking etc. is 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 2009 seeks to follow the earlier DIPSO workshops, co-located with Ubicomp 2007 and Ubicomp 2008 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. The major workshop activity will contain lively discussion phases structured around some concrete agendas. We promise to develop some research directions for smart objects design and integration research.
The Third International Workshop on Design and Integration Principles for Smart Objects (DIPSO 2009) will be held on
September 30, 2009 in conjunction with Ubicomp 2009 at Orlando,

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.
Goals and Scope
The intention of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines with the goal to discuss, identify, share experiences and formalize key issues surrounding the challenge of building scalable, interoperable smart object systems. Rather than producing new ideas, we are more interested in extracting the best practices from the existing systems and extrapolating them with collaborative discussions. The immediate goal will be to investigate key issues from a variety of angles influenced by experience and background of the participants. The ultimate goal will be to formalize the design and integration rationale of smart objects and to define agendas to stimulate further research.The workshop will be highly interactive, to maximize information exchange and foster collaborations. The major workshop activity will contain lively discussion phases structured around some concrete agendas.
We solicit technical papers describing original, novel and previously unpublished research results. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Design, Development and Representations 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
