Call for Vision and Challange Papers

PDF version

For the second time the International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (SSTD 2013) includes a Vision and Challenge track and program committee.

SSTD 2013 is the 13th event of a series of biannual symposia that discuss research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management. The Vision and Challenge track invites submissions of short papers in the areas of interest of the main event that:
  • Describe revolutionary ideas that are likely to guide research in the near future
  • Challenge existing assumptions prevalent in the research community
  • Identify novel applications and technology trends that create new research challenges
These papers should provide stimulating ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues and/or influence the direction of research within the realm of SSTD, i.e., research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management.

While an exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and in-depth understanding of the issues is expected. Accepted contributions will be presented at a special session during the symposium and will be included in the proceedings of SSTD 2013.


Vision/challenge submissions should have a maximum of 4 pages in LNCS format.
