Call For Papers

21st International Symposium on Web and Wireless Geographical Information Systems (W2GIS 2024)
June 17-18, 2024, Yverdon-les-bains
Submission link:

Recent advances in wireless Internet technologies have sparked interest in handling vast amounts of geospatial data.
W2GIS serves as a platform for exploring cutting-edge developments in Web and Wireless Geographical Information Systems, encompassing both theoretical insights and technical innovations. This event, now in its 21st edition, continues its tradition of excellence by alternating locations between East Asia, Europe, and North America.

As technology advances, user-generated content gains importance, offering substantial data for complex scientific challenges. This year, our focus is on recent developments in citizen science and Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) projects. We encourage submissions on innovative data validation methods and public engagement in scientific projects, while also welcoming contributions on diverse topics, including, but not limited to:
- Geospatial databases and spatio-temporal data management
- Mobile spatial interaction, movement analysis
- Spatial search, GeoWeb search engines and services
- Location-based social networks
- On-line spatial data mining
- GeoSensor data acquisition, processing, management and analysis
- Smart environments, Internet of Things and ambient spatial intelligence
- Exploratory cartography and Web and wireless geo interfaces
- GIS visualization techniques for Web and mobile location-based applications
- Cyber-geography & augmented reality
- Map personalization and adaptation
- 3D modelling of cityscapes for location-based services
- Security, privacy, and usability issues of Web and wireless environments
- Semantic geospatial Web and interoperability
- Indoor and outdoor wayfinding and navigation
- Telematics, GIS and location-based applications
- LBS and transportation applications

We invite papers in the form of three types of contributions:
- full papers to present scientific results (10 to 16 pages),
- short papers to present ongoing work (6 to 10 pages), and
- industry papers, for works with a larger focus on industrial impact and at least one author with an industrial affiliation (6 to 16 pages).

Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers. Each paper must be written in English, it must be submitted in PDF, and it must be formatted using the Springer camera-ready templates available at the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science website (
All contributions must be uploaded through the submission site at EasyChair:
All submissions will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the Program Committee.

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer LNCS series. Best selected papers will be invited to submit an expanded version for consideration in a special issue within the Journal of Geo-spatial Information Science (ranked Q1 on Scopus).

W2GIS 2024 will also feature a Doctoral Symposium, providing a valuable platform for Ph.D. students to receive feedback and guidance from well-known researchers and industry experts. Additional information is available on the dedicated web page:
Any questions about the W2GIS 2024 Doctoral Symposium can be emailed to: luigiliberolucio.starace at unina dot it.

22 December, 2023 – Full paper submission
23 February, 2024 – Notification of acceptance
18 March, 2024 – Camera-Ready copy due

At the conference, two 500 € prizes will be awarded for the best research paper and the best presentation.
