Upcoming events

MOVE final conference / Sept 29 - Oct 1 2013 / Technical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria 

Analysis & Visualization of Movement 

call for participation & papers


Objectives of the Final Conference: MOVE is about Knowledge Discovery from Moving Objects. While we are all working on the same topic, we are doing it from all different angles, which makes MOVE a shining example of interdisciplinary networking enabled by COST, and the Final Conference will be where we shine that light on the world. Additionally, we also want to make sure that the results generated within MOVE remain visible beyond the lifetime of this COST Action.

Two-tiered approach for submissions: To fulfil both objectives, we will entertain a two-tiered model for your submissions to the Final Conference. On the one hand, submissions will be selected to feature on the MOVE website that is destined to survive the Action. On the other hand, some of these submissions will be selected for live presentation in Vienna.  All submissions that are selected by the Programme Committee — whether for website presentation only or for oral & website presentation — will be considered for travel reimbursement allocation (see below). In any case, however, in order to be considered for this conference, submissions must include multimedia content (see below), with the exception of position papers discussing future research challenges (see below).

Submissions featuring results:Submissions should feature results that have been produced during the lifetime of MOVE, and share a relationship with MOVE. Optimally, they represent results generated between more than one group (e.g. made possible through STSMs or joint projects/work), highlighting the strong networking aspect of this COST Action. However, they may also be the outcome of projects that have been carried out within a single MOVE group (incl. e.g. PhD projects). They may represent your very latest research, but equally, they may represent other significant steps that you are most proud of and that have been generated earlier in the life of MOVE (remember, the aim is to showcase a cross-section of work from MOVE) — even if they have been published before. All submissions should, however, deal with topics of relevance to MOVE. 

Form of delivery: Contributions should be suited for integration into the MOVE website. That is, we are interested in self-explaining, highly graphical (and possibly animated) multimedia content that can be consumed and understood by a visitor of the website in a standalone mode. The multimedia content should serve as a teaser that is possibly supported by publications providing more in-depth documentation of the results. Submissions thus can take many forms:

  1. screen-captured demos (examples: http://tinyurl.com/pquqhs8; http://tinyurl.com/oprpvq2)
  2. videos (example: http://tinyurl.com/oqk2o5r)
  3. self-running slide shows (examples: http://tinyurl.com/oyk3493; http://tinyurl.com/npa6zom)
  4. posters (example: http://tinyurl.com/qgf3ewm)  
  5. combinations of the above; use your imagination

All animated content should either contain a spoken, recorded narration, or subtitles or callouts should be added that provide the narrative. Visitors of the MOVE website should have a chance of understanding the content well enough to get the main points, get interested, and follow the links to your background publications that provide full detail. So, basically, enhancing an illustrative PowerPoint presentation with a good, informative narrative (in audio or in text captions) and providing a link to one or two relevant papers would be fine. Of course, more creative forms of content are even better.

What should you submit? Your submission should contain two parts, the multimedia (MM) content and an accompanying factsheet.

MM content — If it’s too large for email attachments, make it accessible through a file sharing site (e.g. Dropbox) or a video sharing site (Vimeo, YouTube etc.). Make sure you hold the copyrights to the content, or copyright has been cleared. If your content is the result of activities that received COST funding, make sure it contains the COST and the MOVE logos! These logos (as shown in the header of this document) can be obtained from the Scientific Coordinator (coordinates below).

Factsheet (PDF) — Should contain the following information: Title of the contribution; name(s), email address(es) and affiliation(s) of author(s); URL/info for download of the MM content; format of MM content; keywords; summary of the key results represented in your contribution (why is it important?), in bullets; references to your paper(s) that this contribution is based on.

Information about generating multimedia content: If you haven’t screen captured videos before, or added a spoken narration to a PowerPoint presentation, recorded a slide show with timings, or created a self-running presentation, the web is full of How-To videos (e.g. on YouTube), incl. infos about free software for these purposes.

Position papers discussing future challenges:

While the majority of contributions, as explained above, will focus on results generated through MOVE, we will also take a look into the future towards the end of the conference. Hence, position papers introducing and discussing challenges for future research are also welcome. Papers should not exceed 1500 words and should contain a title, and the names, email address(es) and affiliation(s) of the author(s).

Review process and travel reimbursement:

All contributions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee. Reviews will form the basis for reimbursement decisions. As mentioned above, all submissions selected by the PC — whether for website presentation only or for oral & website presentation — will be considered for travel reimbursement allocation. The aim of the PC is to have a large turnout at this conference, as this is the concluding event of MOVE, and as we have slightly more funds available than for previous meetings. Nevertheless, available funds might not suffice to fully reimburse all participants. Hence, as a rule, one author (who has to be a WG member of at least one WG) from each accepted contribution will be offered full reimbursement of travel costs. Additional co-authors of accepted papers might also be reimbursed if funds are sufficient. Reimbursement decisions will be communicated along with acceptance decisions.

Since the conference will also include a meeting of the Management Committee (MC), MC members will be reimbursed through the budget of the MC meeting.[1]
