12th International Symposium on
Web and Wireless Geographical Information Systems (W2GIS 2013)

4-5 April 2013, Banff, Alberta, Canada


October 30, 2012 Full paper submission
November 30, 2012 Notification of acceptance
December 15, 2012 Camera-Ready copy due


The recent advances on the developments of Wireless and Internet
technologies have generated increasing interest in the diffusion and
processing of geo-referenced data. Wireless and Internet devices also
offer new ways of accessing and analyzing geo-spatial information.
Consequently, new challenges and opportunities have been provided to
the GIS research community.
This Symposium is intended to provide an up-to-date review of advances
in recent development of Web and Wireless Geographical Information
Systems (W2GIS). It is the 12th in a series of successful events
beginning with Kyoto 2001, and alternating locations between East Asia
and Europe. This year, and for the first time, W2GIS will move to
North America. We invite submissions that address both theoretical and
technical issues of W2GIS

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to as long as they
address issues related to W2GIS and location-based services:

- GeoSpatial databases, spatial search, data mining
- Mobile spatial interaction
- GeoWeb search engines and services
- GeoSocial Networks
- Spatio-temporal Data Management
- GeoSensor data acquisition, processing and analysis
- Smart environments and ambient spatial intelligence
- Exploratory cartography and interfaces
- 3D modelling of cityscapes for LBS
- LBS applications in both real-world and virtual spaces
- Security, privacy, and usability
- Cyber-geography & augmented reality
- Semantic geospatial web
- Intelligent Media structure, interaction, and distribution
- Telematics and GIS applications
- Ubiquitous and wireless GIS
- Map personalization and adaptation
- User studies and evaluations
- Indoor and outdoor locationing, wayfinding, and navigation
- Volunteered Geographic Information
- Advanced GIS visualization techniques for Web and mobile applications

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science series . Each paper must be written in English,
should be limited to 6000 words, and submitted in PDF file.
Authors please see for formatting template.
Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of
keywords indicating subject classification. The full names and
addresses of the authors should be printed only on the title page. The
author who is the contact person should be identified as such.
Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one of the
authors to attend the conference and present the paper. A selection of
best papers will be considered for a special issue of a journal
