FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: "Identifying Objects, Processes and Events in Spatio-Temporally Distributed Data", 12 Sep 2011, USA

http://nav.spatial.maine.edu/cosit/

This workshop forms part of the Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT'11) to be held at Belfast, Maine, USA

Aim of the workshop

-------------------

With the development of new sensor and communication technologies,

there is an ever more pressing need for reliable and properly codified

methods for deriving high-level information from masses of dynamic

spatio-temporally distributed data. Data sources of relevance here

include wireless sensor networks, CCTV, GPS, crowd-sourcing, and many

others. The data may in some cases be understood as sample points from

a continuous dynamic field, in other cases they may represent discrete

objects forming crowds, swarms, or other collective entities. The

desired high-level information can include the identification of

objects or object-like aggregations, and the processes and events that

they participate in, e.g., motion, expansion, contraction, splitting,

or merging. Although much work is now being done on investigating such

phenomena, there is still a need for a unified theoretical framework

and common vocabulary to support the development of tools and

techniques for handling them.


This workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in the general

area described above, and to solicit papers covering a range of

related topics, such as

 
* representation techniques (e.g., Voronoi diagrams; lifelines,

  histories and trajectories) 

* algorithms (e.g., spatial footprint generation and tracking,

  decentralised spatial algorithms)

* formal theories (e.g., spatio-temporal calculi, process and

  event algebras, bigraphs)

* applications (e.g., emergency management, security,

  traffic management, behaviour monitoring, environmental monitoring,

  ubiquitous computing)

* visualisation and interaction (e.g., mobile and ubiquitous

  devices, natural language interaction, volunteered / crowd-sourced

  geographic information, ambient intelligence) 


We are looking for papers handling any of these topics with reference

to the general theme of the workshop, identifying objects, processes,

and events from distributed spatio-temporal data sources. The accepted

papers will be included in the electronic COSIT conference

proceedings. 

 

We also aim to approach a publisher with a view to

subsequently issuing a selection of papers from the workshop

(suitably extended and polished), either as a self-standing book or a

special issue of a journal.
