The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic
Information Systems 2011 (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011) is the nineteenth
event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with
the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and
practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geo-spatial
data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and
research in all aspects of geographic information systems. The
conference provides a forum for original research contributions
covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of GIS
ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to
data storage and query processing and indexing. The conference is

conference and to present the accepted submission. Otherwise, the
accepted submission will not appear in the published conference
proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the conference
proceedings. All questions should be addressed to the PC Chairs.

19th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference
on Advances in Geographic Information Systems
(ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011)

Call for Workshop Proposals
---------------------------------------------

November 1, 2011
Chicago, IL, USA
http://acmgis2011.cs.umn.edu/workshops

The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic
Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS) traditionally holds one day
co-located workshops on the day immediately preceding the first day
of the conference. ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011 aims to continue this
practice and invites proposals for workshops to be submitted in pdf
format to the Workshop Chair, Markus Schneider
(mschneid@cise.ufl.edu), by May 1, 2011.

The duration of a workshop is one day. Workshops will take place on
November 1, 2011, at the location of the conference.

The proceedings of the workshops are expected to be published jointly
with the conference proceedings and will appear in the ACM Digital
Library.

Workshops will benefit from the registration process of ACM
SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011. All workshops will have a common continental
breakfast and common morning and afternoon coffee breaks. The
workshops focus on particular aspects of our field and are intended
to enhance the conference experience for those attending the ACM
SIGSPATIAL GIS conference. Thus, all workshop attendees must also
register for the main ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS conference. The ACM
SIGSPATIAL GIS conference sets the registration fees for the
workshops which are the same for each workshop and are set at a
minimum level to recover costs of room rental, refreshments, and AV.
No complimentary registration is provided to workshop organizers. If
workshop organizers wish to have invited speakers, any additional
financial support must come from funds that are raised by the
workshop organizers.

One author per accepted workshop contribution (paper, poster, demo)
is required to register for the workshop and the conference as well
as attend the workshop to present the accepted submission. Otherwise,
the accepted submission will not appear in the ACM Digital Library
version of the workshop proceedings.

Each workshop proposal must contain all pertinent information,
including the following:

* workshop title
* short description of the topic and the format of the workshop
* explanation of why the proposed workshop is a good match with
ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011
* names and contact information of the workshop organizer(s)
* names of the members of the program committee (at least 50% must
be already known and confirmed at the time of the proposal)
* proposal for important dates (paper submission deadline,
notification deadline, etc.)
* expected number of participants
* in case of previous instances of the workshop, the historical
numbers of participants
* in case of previous instances of the workshop, the historical
submission and acceptance counts

The decision about acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will be
made by the Workshop Chair in consultation with the SIGSPATIAL
Executive Committee and the General Chairs, taking into account venue
capacity as well as viability.

Evaluation criteria include overall quality and the fit with respect
to the expected ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011 program. Note that proposals
are especially encouraged on emerging topics that are relevant to
spatial information systems and algorithms (including location-based
services and geographic information systems). Notification will be
given by June 1, 2011.

The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for their
own review process. Publicity will be handled jointly with the
workshop organizers being responsible for the creation of a workshop
website. The local arrangements chairs may require that all workshops
adhere to a specific general timetable to facilitate catering.
Workshop organizers must inform the Workshop Chair of the numbers of
submissions and acceptances as soon as these numbers become
available. Workshops with fewer than 20 expected registrants may be
canceled at the discretion of the conference organizers. All proposers
and organizers of accepted workshops must register for the workshop or
the workshop will be canceled.
