16th International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases

August 19 – 21, 2019
Vienna, Austria

The International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases 2019 (SSTD 2019) was the sixteenth event of a series of biannual symposia that discussed 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 was on original results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of spatial and temporal database technology. SSTD also welcomed experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that described lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal was to exchange research ideas and results across academia, industry, and government from diverse geographies and career stages.

SSTD 2019 was held in Vienna, Austria, August 19-21, 2019.

SSTD 2019 solicited submissions in four tracks.

Research track:
Authors were invited to submit long research papers that presented original research contributions. The selection criteria included quality, novelty, correctness, and relevance to SSTD. Authors were also invited to submit short research papers that discussed exciting new work that was not yet mature enough for a long paper. In particular, novel but significant proposals were considered for acceptance to this category despite not having gone through sufficient experimental validation or lacking strong theoretical foundation.

Demo track:
Authors were invited to submit demo papers, describing demonstrations of systems, developed or under development. The selection criteria for the demonstration proposals included the novelty, the technical advances and challenges, and the overall practical attractiveness of the demonstrated system.

Industry track:
Authors were invited to submit industry papers that described original experiences, challenges, systems, and applications in industry.

Vision track:
Authors were invited to submit vision papers that described revolutionary ideas that were likely to guide research in the near future, challenge existing assumptions prevalent in the research community, or identify novel applications and technology trends that create new research challenges.

Topics of interest for all four tracks included, but were not limited to, the following in the context of spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal data.

All submissions were required to be in English, formatted in PDF according to the ACM SIG Conference Proceedings (sigconf) template.
