Call For Papers

The 8th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on GeoStreaming (IWGS 2017)

November 7, 2017, Los Angeles, California

Call for Papers

Aim and Scope:

We are entering the era of "big data" thanks to the exponential growth and availability of structured and unstructured data, among which a large amount are real-time streaming data emitted from sensors, imagery and mobile devices. In addition to the temporal nature of stream data, various sources provide stream data that has geographical locations and/or spatial extents, such as geotagging twitter streams, mobile GPS location streams, spatial temporal image streams, and so on. On one hand, this amount of streamed data has been a major propeller to advance the state of the art in geographic information systems. On the other hand, the ability to process, mine, and analyze that massive amount of data in a timely manner prevented researchers from making full use of the incoming stream data. The geostreaming term refers to the ongoing effort in academia and industry to process, mine and analyze stream data with geographic and spatial information.

This workshop addresses the research communities in both stream processing and geographic information systems. It brings together experts in the field from academia, industry and research labs to discuss the lessons they have learned over the years, to demonstrate what they have achieved so far, and to plan for the future of "GeoStreaming". We encourage researchers from academia and industry to submit papers that highlight the value of GeoStream data processing, analyzing, and mining on topics that include, but not limited to the following:

* Spatio-temporal stream systems
* Spatio-temporal stream query processing
* Real-time mining of spatial and spatio-temporal data
* Location-aware stream systems
* Privacy preserving in mobile object databases
* Traffic monitoring and prediction
* Geosensing technologies and their application
* Geosampling and probabilistic spatial stream query processing
* Real-time geographical information extraction and retrieval
* Geosocial networks
* Main memory and/or real time indexing of moving objects
* Real-time spatial data visualization
* Spatio-temporal stream processing on cloud
* Participatory spatio-temporal data streams and Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) systems
* Use of hardware acceleration in real-time stream processing
* The use of stream processing in traffic management, aerospace, earthquake physics, geodynamics, weather forecasting, asset management and scientific applications

Paper Submission:

We welcome submissions of both technical papers and vision/position papers:
* Full research paper: up to 10 pages (8 pages recommended)
* Short technical or vision paper: up to 4 pages

Papers must be electronically submitted in PDF format at the following submission site:


Farnoush Banaei-Kashani, , University of Colorado Denver
Chengyang Zhang, , Amazon
Abdeltawab Hendawi, , University of Virginia

Important Dates:

Paper Submission Deadline: August 31, 2017
Notification of Acceptance: September 21, 2017
Camera-Ready Submissions: October 5, 2017
Workshop Date: November 7, 2017
