Cyberspace is an open, global, unregulated, and virtual area of decentralized human activities, social interactions, and application services in the information space transmitted by sensors and Internet communication channels, and supported by cyber infrastructures. Cyberspace data, whether voluntarily or involuntarily created at unprecedented rates of dissemination, originates from a variety of user communities, ranging from experts to the general public, and different supports from social media to mobile users, but are not always well structured because they are most often not generated for further manipulation. Hence, new ideas and frameworks must be developed to reflect the spatial and temporal structures that emerge. The talk will introduce a series of theoretical, conceptual, methodological, and computational advances and contributions of this digital revolution to the study of mobility patterns in urban and regional environments. I will also discuss with the audience a few key implications of this emerging cyberspace and some of the upcoming research challenges.

Short Bio:
Christophe Claramunt is a professor in computer science at the Naval Academy Research Institute in France. His research is oriented towards theoretical aspects of geographical information science, including spatiotemporal models and theories, semantic and cognitive-based GIS; WEB, wireless and GIS systems, and their application to maritime and urban environments. He is an associate editor of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science (IJGIS) and serves on the editorial boards of several area journals (CEUS, JOSIS, JLBS, IJAIS, GIS, IJAEIS) and conferences/workshops (COSIT, SeCoGIS, ACMGIS, SC, SDH, WEBIST, STAMI and ISA). He is currently chairing the European Graduate School for the Blue Planet: https://isblue.fr/en/. More at: http://christophe.claramunt.free.fr/
