First International Workshop on Spatio-temporal Data Management and Analytics (SDMA’2016)

In conjunction with APWeb 2016, the 18th Asia Pacific Web Conference (APWeb 2016)

Aim and scope

Smart phones are necessary for people who are living in the modern world. It has many built-in new features can allow people to surf on the Internet, use digital map for navigation or make an order online directly on the smart phone. Such user behaviors contain the rich of spatial (e.g. web objects with geo-tags) and trajectory (e.g. GPS trace of vehicles and human beings) information and can be extracted anonymously. It is easy to see these data has amount of business values and can play important roles in many critical areas such as traffic monitoring, urban planning and event detecting.

Since the volume of spatial and trajectory data is increasing rapidly, it requires emerging algorithms and applications to analysis such data. Moreover, the spatial and trajectory data analyzing has attracted a lot of attends in both academic field and industry field.

This workshop on aims to solve challenge problem and contribute to spatial and trajectory data management and analysis.



Note: Each paper has 10 minutes for presentation plus 2 minutes for QA
