活动时间:2016-07-19

In the era of big data, increasingly sizeable datasets come from social media, particularly location-based social media, in the form that is widely known as user-generated contents. Many social media datasets are made available at the finest spatial and temporal scales. The availability of such data creates unprecedented opportunities for researchers to uncover what were previously hidden in the era of small data. What kind of new research questions may be addressed with the available social media data? What are the social, ethical, and political implications of the wide use of social media platforms and the availability of such data? Particularly, what can geographers, GIScientists, and social scientists in general, contribute in response to the unique research opportunities and challenges with social media data?


The 1st International Conference on Location-based Social Media Data was successfully held in Athens, USA on March 13-14, 2015. The Conference was organized to advocate the development through social media data while the issue has been increasingly recognized by the international internet society, and successfully promoted the importance of international social media data exchange. The second conference is designed to bring together leading researchers from various fields and perspectives to share ideas and findings of their research related to social media data. The aim is to provide a forum for participants to reflect upon what has been accomplished and to discuss what can be pursued in the future. You are warmly invited to submit a short abstract to ICLSM 2016, and to share the valuable experiences with the scientist and scholars around the world.


Submission
You are invited to submit short abstracts (200-500 words) at iclsm2016@outlook.com. Example topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Theories and Data Models for Social Media Data
 GIS representation and data structure for social media data
 Theoretical models of social media data in geographic, temporal, and social dimensions
 Open GIS in the big data era
 Scalability issues with social media data
 Representativeness of social media data
 Data quality and trust in social media big data


Analysis and Applications

 Applications of social media data and analysis in any field of study
 Social media data mining
 Social or complex network analysis
 Fractal or scaling analysis of big data
 Big data analytics and place sentiments
 Human mobility and spatial interaction


Geovisualization for Social Media Data
 Geovisualization of social media data in space, time, and social dimensions
 Visual analytics tools for social media data
 Exploratory and visual data mining of social media data
 Agent-based simulations of human mobility and interaction patterns


All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to give oral or poster presentations at the conference. Following the peer-review process, highest quality research papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of SCI Papers and possibly an edited book.
