Call for Papers 

1st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Methods for Enriched Mobility Data: Emerging issues and Ethical perspectives 2023 (EMODE23)

Joint with 31st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2023), Hamburg, Germany

Mobility data collection and analysis  is nowadays essential in many  domains such as understanding human mobility, predicting diseases, building urban and transportation infrastructure, sustainable mobility, improving tourism and many other applications.  Mobility data has generally the form of trajectories that represent the tracks of a moving object (human, vehicle or animal). Methods for collecting, representing and analysing trajectories have reached a certain maturity level in the literature. However, new challenges rise in the context of a more general mobility enrichment, fostered by the increasing data availability like the initiatives of mobility data sharing and mobility data spaces. In particular, many unresolved questions remain regarding the management and analysis of mobility data that is enriched with various forms of heterogeneous semantic information. Furthermore, when analysing this new kind of enriched mobility data, one should take into account possible misuses. 
 Societal good applications and methods for collecting, processing and using these data and the results of analyses should be identified and chosen in order to ensure ethically desirable outcomes. The results of the algorithms and the suggestions provided should not be biased or discriminatory towards particular groups or populations. There is a need for an interdisciplinary approach to these semantically enriched spatio-temporal data and there is therefore a need to exploit methods from other disciplines like AI, NLP, Ethics.  The EMODE23 workshop  focuses on all these novel aspects and issues for managing and analysing the enriched mobility data. The scope of the workshop is to bring together researchers in the SIGSPATIAL community as well as researchers in related disciplines that can be synergistic and complementary to advance the state of the art techniques. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following, where a specific focus on semantically enriched mobility data is particularly welcome: 
** Mobility data analytics: novel methods and platforms
** AI methods for mobility data management and analysis 
** NLP methods for mobility data management and analysis
** Federated learning for mobility analysis 
** Parallel / distributed / streaming  data processing for mobility analytics
** Cloud / fog / edge data processing for mobility analytics
** Visual analytics on mobility data
** Generating synthetic mobility datasets
** Mobility data sharing: methods for analysis of heterogeneous mobility data
** Urban / maritime / aviation / animal ecology applications for  semantically enriched data analysis 
** Integration / interlinking of mobility with societal data
** Fairness, explainability, privacy, and further ethical (and/or legal) requirements in the collection, analysis and uses of mobility data, including ** privacy, fairness and explainability 
** Societally “good” applications 
** Sustainability of mobility and of the mobility data processing
** Trustworthy and privacy preserving mobility data spaces 

The workshop is planned to be half day on the 13th of November 2023.  

Important dates

* 15 September 2023 AoE  submission of papers  ** FIRM DEADLINE **
* 6 October 2023  Notification of acceptance
* 20 October 2023    Camera ready submission  
* 13 November 2023  Day of the workshop 

Submission guidelines

Full research papers should present mature research on a specific problem or topic in the context of the workshop topics. We also welcome demonstrations of existing or developing methods, toolkits, and best practices. 
All submitted papers will be peer reviewed. Once accepted, at least one author is required to register for the workshop and the ACM SIGSPATIAL conference, as well as attend the workshop to present the accepted work which will then appear in the ACM Digital Library.
The workshop will nominate a best paper award. 
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at All submitted papers will be peer reviewed to ensure the quality and the clarity of the presented research work. Specifically research papers will be evaluated for novelty, quality and potential impact of the proposed approach. Demo papers will be evaluated on the novelty and usefulness of the system for the society and the research community, attractiveness for the attendees.
Submissions will be single-blind — i.e., the names and affiliations of the authors should be listed in the submitted version.

The EMODE23 workshop accepts three kinds of submissions:
- Long research papers:  8 to 10 pages 
- Short research papers: 4 to 6 pages
- Demo papers max length 4 pages

Papers should be submitted using EasyChair at URL
