Solazo Weather App (SWAP): Approximating the Weather
Session Description: Research based on mobile phone data is becoming more and more common in geography, planning and social sciences in general as data collection from mobile networks is cost-effective compared to traditional methods due to the immense penetration rate. Numerous applications can be found in the literature: from signature identification in human mobility in the frame of complexity science to transport management applications. Geography and spatial sciences seem to be highly benefit from this development as data from mobile phone operators, despite the privacy issues, can be seen as an opportunity to model the spatio-temporal dynamics of human behavior.
The objective of this session is to bring together studies which aim to answer in a quantitative manner research questions in the wider area of human geography utilizing this new and exciting data.

Session Description: The use of mobile phone data for scientific research has become increasingly popular among geographers in recent years. Geo-referenced, individual and aggregated data from mobile phone operators enables analysts to uncover fine-grained spatiotemporal dynamics of socio-spatial phenomena that would have not been identified if traditional spatial statistics had been employed. Despite the undoubted potential of mobile phone data for deepening our understanding of critical social issues, its use also raises questions about privacy protection and confidentiality, as it may disclose the home, workplace, activities and trips of individuals in a population under scrutiny.
This panel session seeks to stimulate discussion and reflection about privacy issues related to the use of mobile phone data in social science. The panel will convene experts from different disciplines and backgrounds who have been concerned with the trade-off between privacy protection and accuracy of analytical results. Each panelist will express her/his views on the progress and prospects in this area, followed by open discussions. The objective is to provide an up-to-date picture on what is happening, outline the challenges and facilitate the dialogue on a wide range of aspects related to (geo)privacy including legislation, policy, anonymity and obfuscation strategies. Our plan is to continue the debate initiated by this panel session in a form of a special issue in a high impact journal.
