Call for papers

The proliferation of positioning technologies, such as GPS receivers and Wi-Fi, gives locations good opportunities to meet diversely data/information.  Locations are combined with keywords in the spatial web querying that return objects that are near a location argument and are relevant to a text argument. Location-based social networking services allow social networks to connect and coordinate users with local people or events that match their interests. Location-based advertising pinpoint consumers location and provide location-specific advertisements on their mobile devices. As an example, website Vidcinity (Video+Twitter+Foursquare) allows users to share and discover videos near a location. These various fusions enlarge the scope of location-based services and pose new challenges on the data management.
