SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SEMANTIC AND CONCEPTUAL
ISSUES IN GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (SECOGIS 2013)

IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE

32ND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONCEPTUAL MODELING (ER 2013)
HONG KONG, NOVEMBER 11-13, 2013

CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------

Recent advances in information technologies have increased the production,
collection, and diffusion of geographical data, thus favouring the design
and development of geographic information systems (GIS). Nowadays GISs
are emerging as a common information infrastructure, which penetrate
into more and more aspects of our society. This has given rise to new
methodological and data engineering challenges in order to accommodate
new users' requirements for new applications. Conceptual and semantic
modeling are ideal candidates to contribute to the development of the
next generation of GIS solutions. They allow to elicitate and capture
user requirements as well as the semantics of a wide domain of
applications.

SeCoGIS is intended to bring together researchers, developers, users,
and practitioners carrying out research and development in geographic
information systems. The aim is to stimulate discussions on the
integration of conceptual modeling and semantics into current geographic
information systems, and how this will benefit the end users. The workshop
will provide a forum for original research contributions and practical
experiences of conceptual modeling and semantic web technologies for GIS,
fostering interdisciplinary discussions in all aspects of these two fields,
and will highlight future trends in this area. The workshop will be
organized in a way to highly stimulate interaction amongst the participants.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
------------------

We invite submissions that address theoretical, technical, and practical
topics of semantic and conceptual issues for GIS. Suggested topics include,
but are not limited to the following:
* Spatio-temporal ontologies
* Spatio-temporal data modeling
* Multi-resolution and multi-representation in GIS
* Spatial services modeling
* Spatial query languages and interfaces
* Semantic GIS in environmental and urban contexts
* Geographical search engines
* Visualization and personalization of spatial information
* Spatial data infrastructures, interoperability, and standards
* Spatial data warehouses
* Spatial data mining and statistics
* Spatial decision making
* Semi-structured geographic data modeling and reasoning
* Semantic web and GIS

PAPER SUBMISSION
----------------

Formatting Guidelines:

SeCoGIS 2013 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS
series. Thus, authors must submit manuscripts using the Springer-Verlag
LNCS style for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. See the page
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
for style files and details. The page limit for workshop papers in LNCS
format is 10 pages.

Submission Guidelines:

Submission to SeCoGIS 2013 will be electronically only. Authors are asked to
submit an abstract first, and then to upload the full paper (in PDF format).
The online submission system will be available from March 1st, 2013 at the
address https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=secogis2013.
