Beatrice Rapisarda, Raffaele, Perego and Chiara Renso from CNR and Iraklis Varlamis and Christos Sardianos from HUA started their secondment to Federal University of Santa Catarina, hosted by Vania Bogorny, Luis Otavio Alvares and Ronaldo Mello. One of the objectives of the secondment of CNR to UFSC is to build an access infrastructure for multiple aspects trajectories and study analysis methods for such trajectories
The first MASTER/Print Workshop aims at bringing together researchers that take part in the MASTER or CAPES/Print project, or people interested in the efficient management and analysis of spatio-temporal or sequential data, which is the focus of both research projects.The workshop program comprises three keynote speakers and several talks, which are detailed in the following. Each talk has one hour duration: 40 minutes for presentation and 20minutes for round table discussion.
MASTER partners are organising the Big Mobility Data Analysis workshop at the EDBT conference, to be held in Copenhagen next March 30th, 2020. BMDA workshop is as its third edition and receives papers in the broad topic of big mobility data analysis. Deadline for submission is next December 8th 2019.

MASTER participates in the Researcher's Night (BRIGHT) at CNR in Pisa and at NTUA in Athens, the night of September 27, 2019. In Pisa, the project coordinator Chiara Renso introduces the potentialities and issues in the collection and analysis of mobility data. We had a special focus on the analysis of Save and Rescue operations of vessels in the Mediterranean Sea, related to the migration phenomenon. The talk has been held in Italian for a non specialistic audience. Many attendees were citizen interested in better understanding mobility data. Part of the audience was young attendees from schools. In Athens, at the National Technical University of Athens, Nikos Pelekis and colleagues from our partner UPRC presented MASTER to a wide audience of interested attendees.

The third issue of the MASTER newsletter is read! In this issue you can find an inspiring article from Prof. Yannis Theodoridis from UPRC discussing the "Mobility Data Analytics" era and the future research challenges. We also meet another EC-funded project called SoBigData sharing common interest that is creating many synergies with MASTER. As in the past issues, we report on the secondments experience and we report on the past and next events. You can download it here. Happy reading!
