Call For Papers

Workshop on Cognitive Engineering for Mobile GIS 2011
In conjunction with the Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT'11)

Belfast, Maine, USA, September 12-16th 2011.

*Workshop Description & Scope*

While mobile computing and Location-Based Services (LBS) have been around for more than a decade, it is just now that the availability of open source APIs and GPS-enabled smartphones make them accessible to a broader public. Citizens as sensors, location-based social networks, and lifelogs offer new, highly heterogeneous and timely sources of data that require processing and integration to develop mobile recommender and decision support systems on top of them. In contrast to desktop applications, mobile services are highly affected by contextual information such as the weather, they have reduced user interfaces, and require additional inference to extract user profiles and tasks from implicit information such as local time and location. The combination of these factors makes cognitive engineering methods to user interfaces and recommender services a promising approach. Such methods integrate cognitive and computer science approaches to the design and construction of machines. More specifically, when applying cognitive engineering to Mobile GIS, principles of human spatial cognition regarding the representation and processing of spatial and temporal aspects of phenomena, and aspects of mobile decision-making must be considered.

*List of Relevant Topics*

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

Cognitive Engineering for a dynamic world
Cognitive aspects of mobile computing
Evaluation of cognitive engineering approaches
Location-based decision support systems
Mobile aspects of human decision-making
Spatial learning in a mobile context
Mobile Human-Computer-Interaction
Citizens as sensors
Volunteered Geographic Information for mobile devices
Communication of geographic information
Trust and provenance in mobile geographic information
Representing and reasoning about context
Semantic similarity and analogy
Ontology personalization
Semantics of geographic information
Mobile Semantic Web
Personal mobile GIS
Mobile sensor systems
Location-based services
Geovisualization for mobile devices

*Workshop Format and Structure*

The workshop will focus on intensive discussions setting a road-map for research on cognitive engineering for Mobile GIS. To prepare the discussion and share thoughts with the research community, participants are requested to submit short vision statements between 4-6 pages in length. These statements of interest will be used by the program committee to select relevant topics for breakout groups. The vision statements will be presented as lightning talks of not more than 5 minutes to inspire discussion and coordinate the breakout groups. The groups will report on their outcomes, identified research topics, and how they relate to each other. We especially welcome demonstrations and will have a session for their presentation. The workshop organizers will take notes and collect feedback during the discussions and prepare a draft version of a poster that outlines the research agenda. This poster will be discussed in a final session and published online.

*Submissions and Proceedings*

All presented papers will be made available through the workshop web-page and published as a volume at CEUR-WS online proceedings. Submissions have to be formatted according to Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science style. While the workshop will focus on discussion of upcoming research, extended versions of workshop papers will be considered for a fast-track submission to a journal open-call special issue on Cognitive Engineering for Mobile GIS targeted for the first quarter of 2012.

Submission due: 31. May 2011
