Date2013-06-14 - 2013-06-16


VenueBeidaihe, China China



Topics/Call fo Papers

This TMSN 2013 workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss and share the state-of-the-art in TMSN development and application, present their ideas and contributions, and set the future direction of TMSN research. In this workshop, we would like to broaden the focus to include location based social media more generally.
The workshop welcomes various different kinds of papers that could handle the novel, difficult and challenging problems in existing location based social networks research domain. Papers of applied research, industrial experience reports, work-in-progress and vision papers with different criteria for each category are also solicited. The best presented paper will receive the BEST PAPER AWARD.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
* Spatial and spatio-temporal data mining in user-centric scenarios
* Moving object tracking, indexing and retrieval for social applications
* Trajectory compressing and simplification
* Trajectory data mining, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery
* Location privacy and security
* Uncertainty of trajectory in modeling, inference, and querying
* Activity recognition and sensing for social applications
* Location identification from sensor data for social applications
* User behavior modeling using physical sensor data
* Semantic meaning and knowledge discovery from trajectory data
* User similarity computing based on location-related information
* Social structure detection from location-related data
* Location and friend recommendations
* Hot spots, significant places, and interesting trajectory pattern detection
* Location-tagged media sharing and mining
* Human-computer interaction in location-based social networks
* Mobile and ubiquitous computing for location-based social networks
* Information retrieval in location-based social networks
* Location and location-related data sharing
* Location and location-tagged media visualization
* Human-computer interaction in TMSN.
* Information retrieval in TMSN.
* Data management in TMSN.
