Mobile Tartu returned as an in-person event this year. The two-day conference was filled with fascinating lectures, sessions and panel discussions. Various topics related to mobile positioning data (MPD) were analysed, such as, standardising methodologies, mapping out actual places of residence and secondary homes, as well as smoother collaborations between the research community, decision-makers and mobile network operators.
The biennial Mobile Tartu conference took place from June 27–June 29 in Tartu, Estonia. The international conference brought together participants from all over the world. The three-day event kicked off with an activity-packed PhD seminar at Mooste Manor where the participants got to know one another and enjoy the first sessions of the conference. The second day took us back to Tartu, to the open space of Omicum, where the sessions continued on the wide range of smart ways to use mobile data to learn more about people and their mobility. The third and final day wrapped the event up with mobile positioning data (MPD) use cases from Positium LBS and explored using this type of data for tourism statistics.
