Mobile Data, Human mobility, Geography
International Conference and PhD Course from 29th of June to 1st of July 2020 in Tartu, Estonia.
7th Mobile Tartu biennial conference invites researchers who are interested in human mobility and mobility data. Explorations on practical applications of mobility data: CDR, signaling, GPS, crowd-sourced social media etc. are highly anticipated. Conference focuses on the latest advancements in theoretical, methodological and empirical aspects of measuring human mobility. Leading scholars, researches and experts dealing with mobility data from different fields: scientific research, planning, governance, business etc. are most welcome.
► Registration and abstract submission is open
► Abstract submission due on January 31, 2020
We invite contributions on the following topics of interest (but not limited to):
Methodological developments in measuring human mobility
Studies using mobility data from different fields:
transport, tourism, smart city, population and urban studies etc.
Official statistics based on big data
Location based applications
Measuring human mobility with spatial Big Data
Mobility modelling based on mobile positioning data
Visualisation of human mobility data
Mobility data management and processing
Data security, privacy and surveillance
Modelling human spatiotemporal behaviour
From mobile phone and sensor data to human-environmental interactions
Automated mobilities - changing human behaviour and urban governance
Mobile Tartu 2020 proposes also special events:
1) PhD course “Mobile phone based data collection field experiment” on 29th of June, sponsored by the Doctoral School of Earth Sciences and Ecology
2) “Mobile phones, travel and transportation” organised by NECTAR (http://www.nectar-eu.eu/).
3) "Automated Mobilities" organised by Jean Monnet Network on “Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility: EU and Australasian Innovations” (CCAMEU)
4) "Big Data for official statistics" organised by UN Big Data Global Working Group
The PhD course and conference targets researchers and doctoral students working on or interested in theoretical, methodological and empirical aspects of mobile positioning, mobile phones and crowd-sourced social media. Those interested in the topic of mobile research from other fields – architects, city planners, mobile operators, emergency management analysts and ICT firms – are also welcome to contribute.
We look forward to seeing you in Tartu!
This event is organised by the Doctoral School of Earth Sciences and Ecology, supported by the European Union, European Regional Development Fund (University of Tartu’s ASTRA project PER ASPERA).
