15th International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases

August 21, 2017 – August 23, 2017 all-day
George Mason University, Arlington Campus
Founders Hall
3351 Fairfax Dr, Arlington, VA 22201

The International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases 2017 (SSTD 2017) is the 15th event of a series of biannual symposia that discuss new and exciting research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management and related technologies with the goal to set future research directions. The primary focus of SSTD symposia is on original results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of spatial and temporal database technology. SSTD also welcomes experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that describe lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal is to exchange research ideas and results across academia, industry and government from diverse geographies, and career stages.

The SSTD 2017 will be held in the Washington, D.C. area at the George Mason University campus in Arlington, Virginia, USA.

Authors are invited to submit electronically original, English-language research contributions or experience reports not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Similar to the previous symposia, accepted papers will be published by Springer as proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Details about the conference, dates, and submission can be found on this page.
