August 27 - August 31
This year the Second International Workshop on Mobility Analytics for Spatio-temporal and Social Data (MATES) is held in Brazil. This workshop combines multiple domains which all heavily rely on spatio-temporal data management. The combination of these domains brings unique data opportunities but also many research challenges, part of them leading to novel multidisciplinary research avenues. A non-exclusive list of scientific issues and applications includes transportation management and planning at large, traffic control, immigration control and security, interconnected surveillance systems, and flow management. These issues become even more important when combining social data with other datasets, thus providing enriched information that may reveal useful knowledge.
MATES is organized together with the 44th International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB).
MATES is partially supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programmes: datAcron: Big Data Analytics for Time Critical Mobility Forecasting under grant agreement No 687591, and Track&Know: Big Data for Mobility Tracking Knowledge Extraction in Urban Areas under grant agreement No 780754
