The main conference on the scientific analysis
of mobile phone datasets
7-10 April 2015, MIT Media Lab
In this year edition, NetMob will host a one-day school and 3 days hackathon. The school+hackathon is mainly intended for students willing to get a crash course on mobile phone data analysis and a hands-on training during the hackathon. This is a great opportunity for students to get the most of NetMob
The main part of Netmob is the scientific conference. We plan to have some keynote talks as well as contributed talks. We hope to see you there and look forward catching up with the latest developments in mobile phone dataset analysis. Submit your abstract (here) and don't forget to register (here)
Building on the success of the previous edition, NetMob will host an special event and award session for the new 'Data for Development Senegal' Challenge on mobile phone dataset analysis. Check http://www.d4d.orange.com/en/home for more details

We have also secured a discounted rate for a limited number of rooms at the the Hyatt Regency Cambridge. Please, follow this link to make the reservation
Questions about the hackathon:
Lectures on April 7 will heavily rely on python for the examples.
The availability of mobile phone datasets has opened the possibility to improve our understanding of how humans communicate, socialize, move around cities, mobilize, etc. Netmob is the primary conference in the analysis of those datasets in social, urban, societal and industrial problems.
The 2015 edition of NetMob will take place at the Media Lab at MIT in a conference format similar to that of the previous editions: one track of short contributed talks, a simplified submission procedure, no proceedings (except for a book of abstracts), and the possibility to present recent results or results submitted elsewhere.
