  journal={Proceedings of the Web Conference 2021},
The next location recommendation is at the core of various location-based applications. Current state-of-the-art models have attempted to solve spatial sparsity with hierarchical gridding and model temporal relation with explicit time intervals, while some vital questions remain unsolved. Non-adjacent locations and non-consecutive visits provide non-trivial correlations for understanding a user’s behavior but were rarely considered. To aggregate all relevant visits from user trajectory and… Expand
