Call for vision and challange papers

PDF version

For the third time the International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (SSTD 2015) includes a Vision and Challenge track and program committee. The Vision and Challenge track invites submissions of short papers in the areas of interest of the main event that:

  • Describe revolutionary ideas that are likely to guide research in the near future
  • Challenge existing assumptions prevalent in the research community
  • Identify novel applications and technology trends that create new research challenges

These papers should provide stimulating ideas or visions that may open up exciting avenues and/or influence the direction of research within the realm of SSTD, i.e., research in spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data management.

While an exhaustive evaluation of the proposed ideas is not necessary, insight and in-depth understanding of the issues is expected. Accepted contributions will be presented at a special session during the symposium and will be included in the proceedings of SSTD 2015.


Vision/challenge submissions should have a maximum of 4 pages in LNCS format. Sample style files are available for Latex2e and Microsoft Word. The use of Latex2e is preferred. Please submit your manuscript via the submission website for research papers. If you have any questions about paper submissions, you may contact with one of the PC co-chairs; Christophe Claramunt(chrisophe.claramunt at, Raymond Chi-Wing Wong (raywong at, or Markus Schneider (mschneid at
