MATES 2018Mobility Analytics for Spatio-temporal and Social Data

with VLDB 2018 – Aug 27 - 31, 2018 – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Topics of Interest

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in developing data-intensive applications that analyze big spatio-temporal/societal data, in order to foster the exchange of new ideas on multidisciplinary real-world problems, propose innovative solutions, and stimulate further research in the area of big spatio-temporal/societal data management and analysis. The workshop intends to bridge the gap between researchers and domain experts, most importantly to raise awareness of real-world problems in critical domains which require novel data management solutions, tailored to addressing the specific needs of each domain. Multiple fields of data management relate to the objectives of this workshop, which is expected to provide a forum for discussion and collaboration, including: spatio-temporal data management, spatial social data, stream processing, data integration, mobility analytics, big data platforms, parallel data processing, data preparation, pattern interpretation, efficient mining tools, privacy issues, new applications, predictive analytics, complex event detection, and visual analytics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
