This summer, from 8th to 10th July, Daisy is hosting in Aalborg the renowned international symposium on spatial and temporal databases (SSTD). SSTD 2009 is the eleventh of a series of biannual events that discuss new and exciting research in spatio-temporal data management and related technologies. Previous symposia were held in Santa Barbara (1989), Zurich (1991), Singapore (1993), Portland (1995), Berlin (1997), Hong Kong (1999), Los Angeles (2001), Santorini, Greece (2003), Angra dos Reis, Brazil (2005), and Boston (2007).
The primary focus of SSTD is on original results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of spatial and temporal database technology. SSTD also welcomes experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that describe lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal is to exchange research ideas and results which will initially contribute to the academic arena, but may also benefit the commercial community in the near future and encourage a dialog between practitioners and researchers.
SSTD 2009 presents a strong technical program that consists of 3 keynote speeches, 20 full research papers, 10 system demonstrations, and 7 posters. In addition, SSTD 2009 features 3 advanced research seminars that give tutorials on state-of-the-art topics within spatio-temporal data management. Check out SSTD 2009 website for more details.
