Call For Papers

Call For Submissions

COM.Geo conference is a leading-edge conference for computing for geospatial research and application. COM.Geo published submissions are read and cited worldwide. They have broad impact on the development of theory, method and practice in Computing for Geospatial fields. Authors must present accepted submissions at the COM.Geo conference. Accepted manuscripts appear in the COM.Geo Proceedings on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application, published by ACM, and in the ACM Digital Library.

Program
COM.Geo Conference provides diverse sessions for submitters to demonstrate their work. COM.Geo invites you to submit research or application papers, tech talks and/or posters, demo talks and/or posters, to organize special sessions, courses, panels, and workshops. This is a good opportunity to demonstrate your work at the conference. Suggested topics include all computing, geospatial, and related applications.


The explosion of computing driven geospatial based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies, such as visualization, cloud computing, mobile computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications.
COM.Geo focuses on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. Innovative geospatial research and application technologies are the brightest spotlights at COM.Geo conference. COM.Geo is playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial fields.
COM.Geo conference is an exclusive event that builds a bridge between computing and geospatial areas. It connects researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from academia, government, and industry in all related fields. COM.Geo 2012 is the 3nd International Conference and Exhibition on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application in June 2012 in Washington DC Metro area.


1) Papers
COM.Geo papers are read and cited worldwide. They have broad impact on the development of theory, method and practice in computing for geospatial fields. Accepted manuscripts appear in the COM.Geo Proceedings on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application, published by ACM, and in the ACM Digital Library for world distribution.
Papers will be peer-reviewed in a single-blind process and authors notified by e-mail (3-5 reviews for a full paper, 1-3 reviews for a short paper). Authors must present accepted papers at the COM.Geo conference.

Full Papers ( up to 10 pages, 20 minutes of complete presentation with 2-3 minutes Q&A)

Full Papers present significant contributions to research and practice in all aspects of Computing for Geospatial. These include mainly accomplished research and/or application results and have 8 pages at the maximum. They can be either research papers or application papers.

Short Papers (up to 6 pages, 15 minutes of presentation and Q&A)

Short Papers present brief and focused research contributions that are noteworthy but may not merit a full paper. These are mostly composed of short, narrowly-focused research or application papers. Besides, these can be fresh developments, latest-breaking research, non-traditional research, or "small research", i.e., some novel ideas and elegant research results that are perhaps too small for the heavyweight full research paper but that are nonetheless of significant use to practitioners.

Final camera-ready submissions in PDF should be up to 10 pages for Full Papers and 6 pages for Short Papers in length and adhere to the ACM style guidelines. Please see your acceptance notification email for detailed instructions about the procedure and timeline for the revision submission.

2) Tech Talks / Demo Talks / Posters

This is a good opportunity for you and your organization to give a 10-minute talk at COM.Geo conference to demonstrate your work or share your vision and idea in a leading computing for geospatial community.

COM.Geo talk abstracts are read and cited worldwide. They have broad impact on the development of theory, method and practice in Computing for Geospatial fields. All accepted manuscripts appear in the COM.Geo Proceedings on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application, published by ACM, and in the ACM Digital Library for world distribution.

Each talk is required to submit an abstract. It will be reviewed by the conference committee and authors notified by e-mail. Authors must present accepted talk abstracts at the conference.

Final camera-ready submissions should be: 1) up to 300 words for a regular abstract and adhere to the abstract-only formatting guide, or 2) up to 2 pages for an extended abstract (Tech Talk Only) in PDF format and adhere to the ACM style guidelines. A preliminary version of your demo or a preliminary PDF or PowerPoint version of your presentation is an optional for the submission.

3) Workshops

Workshop proposals are solicited for COM.Geo conference. Please include in your proposal:

▪ Title of the workshop
▪ Organizers and their affiliations
▪ Sample call for papers, including the workshop's main topics
▪ Expected duration of the workshop; i.e., 1/2 day, full day, or 2 days
▪ If the workshop was previously held, the location (i.e., which conference), date, the number of published papers and attendees at the last workshop

Final camera-ready submissions should be adhere to the ACM style guidelines. The ACM copyright form need to be completed by the authors for the accepted abstracts and relevant submission materials for publication.

4) Courses

Courses can be proposed by scholars or company representatives. A Courses program will share the very best of computing and geospatial technologies and techniques with the communities. International experts present instructional sessions for beginners, novices, or experts on special topics.

A prospective course organizer should submit a proposal to Conference Chair, including:
Title of the course
Organizers, presenters, their affiliations, and short bios
Abstract of the course
List of topics to be covered
Expected duration of the course; i.e., 1/4 day, 1/2 day

Final camera-ready submissions should be adhere to the ACM style guidelines. The ACM copyright form need to be completed by the authors for the accepted abstracts and relevant submission materials for publication.
