The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances
in Geographic Information Systems 2008 (ACM GIS 2008) is the
sixteenth event of a series of symposia and workshops that began
in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers,
users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in
novel systems based on geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering
interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic
information systems. The conference provides a forum for original
research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and
implementation aspects of GIS ranging from applications, user
interface considerations, and visualization down to storage
management and indexing issues. This year's conference builds
on last year's conference great success and on being the premier
annual conference of the newly formed ACM Special Interest
Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers,
students, and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions
to this year's ACM GIS.


Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

* Cartography and Geodesy
* Computational Geometry
* Computer Vision Applications in GIS
* Distributed, Parallel, and GPU algorithms for GIS
* Earth Observation
* Geographic Information Retrieval
* Human Computer Interaction and Visualization
* Image and Video Understanding
* Location-based Services
* Location Privacy, Data Sharing and Security
* Performance Evaluation
* Photogrammetry
* Similarity Searching
* Spatial Analysis and Integration
* Spatial and Spatio-temporal Information Acquisition
* Spatial Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
* Spatial Data Quality and Uncertainty
* Spatial Data Structures and Algorithms
* Spatial Data Warehousing, OLAP, and Decision Support
* Spatial Information and Society
* Spatial Modeling and Reasoning
* Spatial Query Processing and Optimization
* Spatio-temporal Data Handling
* Spatio-temporal Sensor Networks
* Spatio-temporal Stream Processing
* Spatio-textual Searching
* Standardization and Interoperability for GIS
* Storage and Indexing
* Systems, Architectures and Middleware for GIS
* Traffic Telematics
* Transportation
* Urban and Environmental Planning
* Visual Languages and Querying
* Wireless, Web, and Real-time Applications


Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research
papers that are not being considered for publication in any other
forum. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted
using the ACM camera-ready templates available at Papers cannot
exceed 10 pages in length. In addition to the regular full-length
papers, the Program Committee may accept some as poster papers which
may be requested to be shortened. All submitted papers will be refereed
for quality, originality, and relevance by the Program Committee.
Submissions will be made electronically and online only at:


Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their Ph.D. research
contributions and work-in-progress. Submissions cannot exceed 6 pages
-- Add (Ph.D. Showcase) to the title. Student authors of the accepted
papers will be given an opportunity to present a summary of their
research at the conference. Successful Ph.D. showcase papers will
appear in the ACM SIGSPATIAL Newsletter.


Authors are invited to submit Demo papers that describe their original
demonstrations to be presented during the conference. Demo paper
submissions cannot exceed 2 pages -- Add (Demo Paper) to the title.
They will appear in the Conference Proceedings.
