Issue N 6 March 2022

The sixth issue of the MASTER newsletter is ready!

You can download from here 

We are very happy that the MASTER project is officially restarting on January 2nd, 2022 after 8 months of formal suspension due to the pandemic restrictions.  Even under a formal interruption, the dissemination activities of MASTER went on since we published papers and we also organised the Dagstuhl Seminar on Mobility and Ethics. 

In this issue, we report on three articles recently published by our partners. The first two papers are proposing methods to store and compare multiple aspects trajectories in an efficient way. A third paper is on the conceptual modeling of dependency rules in multiple aspects trajectories and extending the MASTER model with rules to express dependency between attributes.

It is undoubted that the COVID-19 pandemic affected the lives of all of us and the MASTER activities in particular.
Nevertheless, the research and dissemination activities related to the project are continuing as much as possible in remote mode.

This issue of the newsletter does not report any secondment but we focus on the projects we are hosting – this month EV-CHIP – and published MASTER papers, as well as events where we have been involved.

You can also find reports, impressions and pictures from our secondees. 

We also introduce a short summary of two research papers recently published:“Towards Semantic-Aware Multiple-Aspect Trajectory Similarity Measuring” and “A network abstraction model for vessel trajectory analysis and anomaly detection” .

Furthermore, you can find a section with past and future events of the project.

 

Issue N.2 March 2019 

The issue N 2 of the MASTER newsletter has been published! You can download it here.

In this issue you can find an interview with our “coach”, the project adviser Simona Losmanova from the REA agency of the European Commission.

Issue N. 1, September 2018

In this first issue we introduce the project, the consortium and report about our kick off event held the last March 2018.

We are very happy and proud that our Independent Ethical Advisor Prof. Bettina Berendt accepted our invitation to prepare a very stimulating article expressing her vision about the need of ethical considerations in data science for holistic trajectories. Prof. Berendt shares her thoughts on two case studies: the well known New York taxi dataset and the controversial topic of the analysis of AIS traces for the detection of search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea, linked to the migration phenomena.
