GeoRich 2020

COVID-19 Disclaimer: In the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, SIGMOD Executive Committee decided to hold SIGMOD/PODS 2020 as a fully virtual conference. In response, GeoRich 2020 will be held as an online event on the original date, June 14. For this purpose, we decided to re-open the submissions with new deadlines. Details about the program and how to virtually attend the workshop will be communicated soon.

Both the current trends in technology such as smartphones, general mobile devices, stationary sensors and satellites as well as a new user mentality of utilizing this technology to voluntarily share information produce a huge flood of geo-spatial data. This data is enriched by multiple additional sources or contexts such as social information, text, multimedia data, satellite data and scientific measurements, called enriched geo-spatial data. This data flood provides a tremendous potential of discovering new and possibly useful knowledge. The novel research challenge is to search and mine this wealth of multi-enriched geo-spatial data. The focus of this workshop is to analyze what has been achieved so far and how to further exploit the enormous potential of this data flood. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to develop a general framework of methods for searching and mining enriched geo-spatial data in order to fuel an advanced analysis of big data applications beyond the current research frontiers.
