Topics/Call fo Papers
This workshop is focused on making the research in information integration and retrieval more relevant to the challenges in systems with significant spatial and temporal components. The workshop will build upon traditional themes of interest namely integration architectures, information extraction, record linkage, named entity extraction, source meta-data learning, query execution and optimization. However, we will give special emphasis to how this can be applied to integrating information arising from systems that are (likely to be) deployed over wide geographic spaces, and collects and uses data that changes over time. Sensor based systems for measuring flow of traffic, water consumption etc are one such area of interest. In dealing with such systems, we must also account for noise arising due to the variability in the data collection, sharing and interpretation models techniques used as well as the noise introduced by data loss by the physical devices themselves.
