1st Workshop on Prediction of Human Mobility at ACM SIGSPATIAL 2017 (PredictGIS 2017)
November 7, Redondo Beach, California, USA

Held in conjunction with the 25th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems

The prediction of human and vehicle mobility in a city is becoming attracting field. This topic attracts researchers in broad field from the behavioral science, where understanding the complexity of the human mobility behavior is one of the hot topic, to industrial field, which apply the result to many beneficial applications. Recent progress to sensing human mobility via smartphones is boosting this trend. However, due to the complexity and context-dependence of human behavior and the incompleteness and noise of geospatial data collecting from various sensors, the prediction of human and vehicle mobility is still far from solved.
This workshop aims at collecting contributions on the cutting-edge studies in human mobility description, modeling, intelligent computational method which can advance the human and vehicle prediction research.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

The next location prediction of individual mobility
The crowd or population mobility prediction
Dynamics of pedestrian, commute flow and migration flow
Traffic congestion, road usage forecast and optimal vehicle routing
Social event forecast using geospatial data
Novel agent mobility simulator
Case study of mobility estimation in academia as well as in industrial field

We welcome submissions of both technical papers and vision/position papers. We have two categories of papers and presentations:

Full research paper: up to 10 pages
Short technical or vision paper: up to 4 pages
Each submission should start with the title and the abstract, the names and contact information of authors. Papers must be electronically submitted in PDF format at the following address:

One author per accepted workshop contribution is required to register for the conference and workshop, to attend the workshop and to present the accepted submission . Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the published workshop proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the workshop proceedings.
