Managing Air Quality Through Data Science (DASFA-MAQTDS)
We plan a full-day workshop. The tentative format and schedule are as follows:
|9:00-9:15AM||Welcome and Introduction to Workshop||Organizer(s)|
|10:15-11:00AM||Theme 1: 3 Paper presentations||TBD|
|11:15-12:15PM||Theme 2: 3 Paper presentations||TBD|
|12:15-1:15PM||Keynote 2||Interns/Field Researchers|
|3:45-5:15PM||Panel Discussion||Drs. Jai Ganesh & Girish Agrawal + 3 to 4 other participants (TBD)|
One session of the workshop will be devoted to presentations by student and field researchers from the larger research group of the organizers, working on a range of mobile data collection tasks around air quality.
The proposed panel discussion will have two interlinked themes: the use of mobile sensors for spatio-temporally varying data, and selection of optimal routes. Prof. Girish Agrawal will lead a discussion on the advantages (and difficulties) of mobile data sensing from a “pattern extraction from sparse data” viewpoint, and Dr. Jai Ganesh will lead a discussion on route selection and optimization from a logistics operations viewpoint. The panel will conclude with a discussion of how best to select a travel route for air quality data collection (using portable sensors) which reflects the variation in urban morphology, both from a physical form and usage point of view.
