Dutch-Australian Workshop on Computational Movement Analysis

The ability to swiftly and accurately analyse trajectories is crucial to a wide range of critical real-world disciplines. For instance, defence relies heavily on such data sets to prepare and predict unit movements in battle planning, and the area of surveillance trajectory analysis is essential to monitor and predict maritime activities. A variety of other disciplines are similarly dependent, including traffic planning, crowd analysis, ecology, meteorology and sports analysis.

Recent technological advances in tracking and sensing are producing an increasing number of opportunities to trace the movement of vehicles, humans and animals, resulting in an exponential growth in the size of trajectory data sets.

Increased data set sizes should be a boon for disciplines that rely on trajectory analysis, but the lack of scalable analytical tools has created a significant barrier to achieving accurate and timely results. As the size of data sets continues to grow, this ad-hoc approach will become increasingly unworkable, highlighting the urgent need to develop fundamental large-set data-analysis tools.

The key goals of the workshop are to supply scalable versions of the most fundamental algorithms and basic data structures for trajectory analysis of large data sets.
