First International Workshop on Social and Privacy aspects of the Mobility - SPM 2011

In conjunction with 12th International Conference on
Mobile Data Management, 6-9 June, 2011, Lulea, Sweden

**** Call for Papers ****

Analyzing huge amounts of mobility data has posed new challenges not only
in the discovery and interpretation of interesting patterns, but also
in the privacy preservation of individuals under observation. However,
the social and privacy aspects of mobility have not been studied in a
systematic and combinatorial way, while the census and the conception
of their effects in our lives is rather in childhood. The convergence
of these complementary aspects, and more specifically, the way that
mobility affects (or is affected by) the social behavior of
individuals and their privacy, emerges the exciting new area of
"socio-mobility". Socio-mobility arises a number of challenging
questions. Are people moving together socially related? Are there
social relations between people moving to semantically similar places?
How could we combine mobility data and patterns with social networking
information? Can social interactions be mined from mobility data by
using external media? To what extend do social interactions affect
privacy? What are the risks of disclosing social interactions between
people and how can we design privacy-preserving techniques to minimize
the risks? What kinds of social interactions are considered sensitive
and how can we model / distort / suppress such interactions?

**** Topics of Interest ****

The SPM workshop brings together researchers investigating answers to
the above questions by seeking novel methods and applications that reveal hidden interrelations
between these aspects.

Topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Extracting people behavior from mobility data, mobility data mining techniques, i.e. clusters, trajectory patterns, moving clusters, flocks, leaders, convoys;
- From mobility analysis to behavioral modeling;
- Extracting social patterns from data;
- Mobility Data and Privacy;
- Anonymity in socio-mobility data;
- Visual analytics for mobility patterns;
- Semantic aspects of moving objects trajectories;
- Semantic data mining;
- Mining data from geo - social networks.

**** Submissions ****

We expect to receive submissions in the form of research papers or position papers. The maximum number of pages for the research papers is 6 pages in the IEEE style, for position papers the maximum number is 3 pages in IEEE style.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three referees on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

Submission Deadline: January, 28 2011
Notification of Workshop Papers: March, 4 2011
Deadline for Camera Ready Papers: April, 1 2011
Workshop date: June, 6 2011
