CSCE6350: Advanced Database Systems, Spring 2014

| Home | Reading | Assignment | Team/Project |



This course treats a specific advanced topic of current research interest in the area of spatio-temporal data processing and mining. The main objective of this class is to study research methods and literature in spatial-temporal database systems. Core research skills of literature analysis, innovation, evaluation of new ideas, and communication are emphasized via homework and projects. Most students may like to get a broad overview of the research topics, methodologies, major results, open problems and potential future directions. Major topics include: spatio-temporal algorithms and data structures, spatio-temporal networks, geo-web, and location-based social networks.

The evaluation scheme will be class participation 10%, paper analysis and presentation - 20%, and project - 40%, term paper - 30%. The class information is listed as follows:
