STDBM 2006

The Third Workshop on Spatio-Temporal
Database Management in conjuction with VLDB 06

September 11, 2006, Seoul, Korea


The topical areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the following :

  • Data Modeling and Manipulation: This involves defining data semantics, models, data types, and query languages for different types of spatio-temporal data, including the  modeling of uncertainty and imprecision. 
  • Query Processing and Indexing: This involves techniques for query optimization, indexing structures (and paradigms) for different types of spatio-temporal data (e.g., trajectories and moving objects) and different types of queries (e.g., spatio-temporal aggregations and joins). System Architecture and Integration: Issues here include the concrete realization of new techniques, i.e., building spatio-temporal extensions into, or on top of existing systems. 
  • Decision Support and Analysis: Topics here include spatio-temporal data mining and data warehousing, as well as visualization techniques.   
  • Applications and Experimentation: This includes experiences with real applications, including the architectural solutions, as well as proposals of new and challenging applications.  Another important aspect for research in general is reproducibility and comparability of results. Hence there is a need for standardization, i.e., spatio-temporal datasets and  benchmarks.

Papers must be written in English. Papers should not exceed 8 pages and be submitted via the workshop home page ( in PDF file of VLDB format ( Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification. All accepted papers will be published in on-line proceedings of CEUR ( Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper. The submitted material must not be published or submitted for publication in other outlets. Authors of best/some selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for inclusion in a major international journal of GIS.
