Special Session EnGeoData - Environmental and Geo-spatial Data Analytics

Turin, Italy

October 1-4, 2018




Environmental and more generally geo-spatial information is now provided by crowdsourcing but also by public administrations in the context of the open data policies. Analyses of such data are still challenging. Firstly because of their heterogeneity (structural, semantic, spatial and temporal), and secondly because of the difficulty in choosing the “best” knowledge discovery process to apply, according to the needs of the experts in the field. This special issue aims to provide high quality research covering all or part of the challenges mentioned above, from a theoretical or experimental point of view.

Challenge about data science deals with creation, storage, search, sharing, modeling, analysis, and visualization of data, information, and knowledge. In Data Science context, spatio-temporal aspects are crucial in order to manage and mine data, to index and retrieve information, and finally to discover and visualize knowledge. By taking into account these spatio-temporal aspects, original methods have to be proposed for processing real and complex data from different domains, e.g., environment, agriculture, health, urban, and so forth.

Topics: - Pre and post processing of environmental and agriculture data - Geographical information retrieval - Spatial data mining and spatial data warehousing - Knowledge discovery use-cases dedicated to environmental data - Spatial text mining - Spatial ontology - Spatial recommendations and personalization - Visual analytics for geospatial data - Dedicated applications:

* Spatio-temporal analytics platform

* Agricultural Decision Support Systems

* Urban traffic systems

* Trajectory analysis

* Land-use and urban policies

* Land-use and urban planning analysis

* Spatio-temporal analysis in Ecology and Agriculture

* and so forth


The submissions Web site for DSAA 2018 Special Sessions is Easy Chair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsaa2018) that is the same as the submission Web site for the main conference track.


Special Session Paper Submission: May 25, 2018 Notification of acceptance: July 20, 2018 Camera-Ready: Aug. 3, 2018 Early Registration: Aug. 13, 2018


Special session papers follow the same format as the conference papers. The paper length allowed is a maximum of ten (10) pages, in 2-column U.S. letter style using IEEE Conference template (see the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html).

All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to conference topics of interest, originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and affiliations must not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. Submissions failing to comply with paper formatting and authors anonymity will be rejected without reviews.

All accepted papers, including main tracks and special sessions, will be published by IEEE and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Top quality papers accepted and presented at the conference will be selected for extension and invited to a special issue of International Journal of Data Science and Analytics (JDSA, Springer). A special issue associated with EnGeoData sessions has been published in 2018: https://link.springer.com/journal/41060/5/2/page/1
