Dear Colleagues,

Sorry for the cross posting from the SWE group, but I think this is of interest to the SensorML group also:

We are about to initiate a W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) incubator  
group [1]  in the area of Semantic Sensor Networks.  The charter is  
attached below in this email.  The charter will be made public next  
week by the W3C assuming all goes well.  Whilst many of you are aware  
of the initiative, there are some on the list who are not aware of  
this initiative.  Your names were given to me by initiators of this  
working group.  This is an early notification to people that we  
believe would be interested in participating in such an initiative.

The work is an initiative of CSIRO, Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State  
University and the Open Geo-Spatial Consortium.

The co-chairs for this group will be Amit Parashar, Amit Sheth and  
Kerry Taylor.

The contacts from the respective organisations are:
CSIRO: Amit Parashar - kerry.taylor at csiro.au, amit.parashar at csiro.au
Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University: Amit Sheth - amit.sheth at wright.edu
Open Geo-Spatial Consortium: Carl Reed - creed at opengeospatial.org

If you are interested in participating then there are three ways you  
can participate:
1. If your organisation is a member of the W3C
2. Alternatively if your organisation is not a member of the W3C, you  
may join the group as an Invited Expert, see policy [2]
3. Alternatively your organisation can become a W3C member [3]

If you are interested please contact me and let me know in what  
capacity you would like to join the incubator group.

We are tentatively proposing the first phone conference be held on the  
13th of March, more details on this later, after the launch of the  
incubator group.
