(In conjunction with GIScience 2014)

**NEW** CFP for Special Issue in IJGIS


AMD 2014 Program

This full day workshop aims to serve as a platform to discuss the recent trends in the study of movement and novel methods for analyzing and contextualizing movement data. The workshop’s focus is on, but not limited to, topics concerning analysis, modeling, and representation of movement patterns. Invited keynote talks will be given by Francesca Cagnacci (Fondazione Edmund Mach) and Patrick Laube (Zurich University of Applied Sciences). The workshop will cover research on any type of movement data from different domains such as transportation (e.g., vehicles, pedestrians), movement ecology (e.g. plants, animals), and environmental hazards (e.g. hurricanes, wildfire, oil spills).

Examples of topics of particular interest include:

  • Analyzing movement patterns using external influences (e.g. environment, geographic context)
  • Analyzing interactions between moving entities
  • Simulation and agent-based modeling of movement
  • Cross-scale movement pattern analysis
  • Entity behavior as a driver for patterns of movement

A special issue with the same aims and scope as the workshop will be published in the International Journal of Geographical Information Science.

Workshop registration fees are 80 € (50 € for students, see here).


Francesca Cagnacci’s keynote talk is titled ‘Lost in space? Figuring out the spatio-temporal scale of movement processes.’

Patrick Laube’s keynote talk is titled ‘The low hanging fruit is gone – Achievements and Challenges of Computational Movement Analysis.
