    This volume contains the papers and posters selected for presentation at the First European Conference on Smart Sensing and Context (EuroSSC 2006) in Enschede, The Netherlands. EuroSSC 2006 was the first conference of a series aiming at bringing together designers, engineers and researchers to explore two complementary viewpoints:
    – A device-centric, technology-driven view: concerning intelligent sensors, sensor networks and information processing for a new generation of networked devices and environments.
    – A service-centric, user-driven view: exploring architectures, techniques, and algorithms for context-aware and pro-active applications made possible by the diffusion of ambient communication, cooperating objects, and interaction technologies.
    These subjects are active and relevant research areas in themselves, and there are several conferences that address them separately. EuroSSC 2006, however, considered them both, and especially the symbiosis between them, which we expect to result in very inspiring and interesting discussions, as well as new research ideas on how to combine them. The conference was organized in single tracks covering various issues ranging from intelligent sensors, sensor networks, context management and context awareness, and privacy, to applications and test beds. Organizing a conference for the first time requires lots of preparations, such as finding a publisher, sponsoring organizations, and TPC members and most importantly attracting potential submitters. Fortunately, the amount and quality of the submissions were such that we were in the luxurious position to be able to accept only high quality and relevant papers. The conference attracted world wide attention and submissions came from five continents. A total of 15 accepted full papers and 14 accepted posters came from Asia, North America and Europe.
