Keynote Speakers

Keynote I: "Spatial Big-Data Challenges Intersecting Mobility and Cloud Computing"

Shashi Shekhar, 
University of Minnesota


Shashi Shekhar is a McKnight Distinguished University Professor at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA. For contributions to spatial
databases, spatial data mining, and geographic information systems(GIS), he received the IEEE Technical Achievement Award and was elected a
Fellow of the IEEE as well as the American Assoc. for Advancement of Science. He has co-authored over 250 research papers in peer-reviewed forums,
co-edited an Encyclopedia of GIS (Springer, 2008, isbn 978-0-387-30858-6), and co-authored a textbook on Spatial Databases (Prentice Hall, 2003,
isbn 0-13-017480-7) which has been translated into multiple foreign languages. He is serving as a member of the National Academies Committee on
GEOINT workforce (2011-12), a member of the Computing Community Consortium Council, a co-Editor-in-Chief of Geo-Informatica: An Intl. Journal
on Advances in Computer Sc. for GIS (ISSN 1384-6175) , an editor for the SpringerBriefs GIS series, a co-chair of the Conference on Geographic
Information Science (2012), and a member of the steering committee for the IEEE Workshop on Spatial and Spatio-temporal Data Mining. He served
on two committees of the National Research Council National Academy of Sciences, namely, the committee on mapping sciences (2004-2009) and
the committee to review the basic and applied research at National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (2005). He also served as a member of the Board
of Directors of University Consortium on GIS (2003-2004), a co-chair of the Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (2011), a member of the
editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Eng., a member of the steering committee of the ACM Intl. Conference on GIS, a member

research projects have been sponsored by the NSF, NASA, UDOD, USDOT, MN/DoT etc. He received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the
University of California (Berkeley, CA). More details are available from

Keynote II: "Spatial Queries in Wireless Broadcast Environments"

Kyriakos Mouratidis


Kyriakos Mouratidis is an Assistant Professor at School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU). He received the B.Sc. degree
from the Computer Science Department at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer
Science and Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2006. His main research area is spatial databases, with a focus
on continuous query processing, road network databases, and spatial optimization problems. He has also worked on preference-based queries, wireless
broadcasting systems, and database privacy topics. He has published at and been involved in the programme committees of most major database conferences,
including SIGMOD, VLDB and ICDE.
