Ph.D. course “Research topics in spatio-temporal data management” co-located with SSTD 2009

Time: July 6-7, 2009
Place: Aalborg University, Selma Lagerløfs vej 300

The course will treat state-of-the-art topics within spatio-temporal data. Lecturers are drawn from the participants of the co-located 11th International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (SSTD) (held in Aalborg July 8-10, 2009).

  1. Searching in Spatial, Temporal, Spatio-Temporal and Multimedia Databases
    Authors: Hans-Peter Kriegel, Peer Kröger, and Matthias Renz (University of Munich)
    Presented by: Peer Kröger and Matthias Renz (University of Munich)
    This seminar provides a comprehensive and comparative overview of general techniques to efficiently support similarity queries in spatial, temporal, spatio-temporal, and multimedia databases.
  2. Nearest Neighbor Search in Spatial and Spatio-temporal Databases
    Dimitris Papadias (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
    This seminar covers algorithms, queries, continuous monitoring, and generalized nearest neighbor search queries in spatial and spatiotemporal databases.
  3. Spatial/Spatio-temporal Data Mining
    Shashi Shekhar (University of Minnesota)
    This seminar surveys some of the new methods for spatial/spatio-temporal data mining including those for discovering spatial co-locations, detecting spatial outliers and location prediction.
