Santorini, Greece 


Massive amounts of spatio-temporal data representing trajectories of moving objects are produced by an ever-increasing number of diverse, real-life applications, ranging from mobile to social media apps and surveillance systems, from vehicle tracking systems to IoT mobile sensors. Such mobility-aware traces come in huge numbers and very complex forms, and can be enriched with multiple different semantic dimensions. These semantically enriched trajectories have the potential to unveil novel challenges in several domains, such as urban, maritime and aviation.  

The explosion in Data Science is happening now. The Big Data technological infrastructure has reached maturity. Significant interest from the research community is being shown towards the Big Data Value Analytics reference model: data management, data processing, data analytics, data visualization. The time is right for the field of Mobility Data Science to follow the trend!

The MASTER project is organizing the First International Summer School on Data Science for Mobility. The school offers participants both visionary keynote speeches and hands-on mini courses held by leading experts in AI and Data Analytics for Mobility from Canada, Greece & Italy. The keynotes speeches will explore the challenges faced due to the voluminous and complex mobility data generated every day in maritime and aviation domains. The hands-on mini courses complement the keynotes by giving practical experience in the usage of analysis tools on real mobility datasets.
