Call for papers: AGILE Workshop: Visually-supported Computational Movement Analysis

cropped-Header_Blue-1

Visually-supported Computational Movement Analysis(VCMA 2016), AGILE Workshop, Helsinki, June 2016

The past decade has seen a dramatic improvement of positioning technologies which led to massive volumes of tracking data about virtually any object that moves, in a multitude of application domains. Consequently, many new methods for these data have been developed, and computational movement analysis has evolved as an important stream of research within GIScience. However, many challenges remain, including context-aware analysis, multi-sensor data integration, scale-adaptive analysis, integration of analytical and visual methods, etc.

This one-day workshop calls for recent advances in movement analysis. First, we call for submissions in any application area using any movement data type on:

  • new computational methods of movement analysis and
  • new visually-supported methods, as well as
  • empirical evaluations and applications of existing methods.

Second, we are organising a data challenge using open GPS seabird tracking data and call for both purely analytical and visually-supported solutions to address ecological research questions. Participation in data challenge is encouraged, but not required for workshop attendance.

 

Workshop Format
This full day workshop will consist of twoparts:
1) a regular session with research presentations based on the accepted short papers; and
2) a data challenge on a large bird migration dataset Participation in the data challenge
is encouraged, but not required for workshop attendance.
Workshop Submission Guidelines
Submissions should be emailed in PDF ‐format to vcma2016@city.ac.uk with the subject header “ VCMA submission” using the template provided on the workshop website:
