SSTD 2009 will be the eleventh of a series of biannual events that discuss new and exciting research in spatio-temporal data management and related technologies. Previous symposia were held in Santa Barbara (1989), Zurich (1991), Singapore (1993), Portland (1995), Berlin (1997), Hong Kong (1999), Los Angeles (2001), Santorini, Greece (2003), Angra dos Reis, Brazil (2005), and Boston (2007).

The primary focus of SSTD symposia is on original results in the areas of theoretical foundations, design, implementation, and applications of spatial and temporal database technology. SSTD also welcomes experience reports from application specialists and the commercial community that describe lessons learned in the development, operation, and maintenance of actual systems in practical and innovative applications. The goal is to exchange research ideas and results which will initially contribute to the academic arena, but may also benefit the commercial community in the near future and encourage a dialog between practitioners and researchers.

In addition to a strong research program, SSTD 2009 features a demonstration session (for demonstrating systems related to the topics of interest) and advanced research seminars (for tutorials on state-of-the-art topics within spatio-temporal data management). Accepted research papers and demonstration papers will be published by Springer as proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) . Detail information can be found here.
