The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2014 (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2014) is the twenty-second event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to 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 geospatial data ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to data storage and query processing and indexing. The conference is the premier annual event of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers, students, and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions to ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2014.

Suggested Geospatial-related topics include but are not limited to the following:

Big Spatial Data
Cartography and Geodesy
Computational Geometry
Computer Graphics Applications
Computer Vision Applications
Distributed and Parallel Algorithms
Earth Observation
Geographic Information Retrieval
Geospatial Architectures and Middleware
GPU and Novel Hardware Solutions
Human Computer Interaction and Visualization
Image and Video Understanding

Spatial Modeling and Reasoning
Spatial Query Processing and Optimization
Spatio-Temporal Data Analysis
Spatio-Temporal Data Management
Spatio-Temporal Sensor Networks
Spatio-Temporal Stream Processing
Spatio-Textual Searching
Standardization and Interoperability
Storage and Indexing
Traffic Telematics
Urban and Environmental Planning
Visual Languages and Querying
Web and Real-Time Applications

Paper Format

Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at It is important that previous related work (especially appearing in prior editions of the ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS Conference and the ACM SIGSPATIAL workshops/symposia) be appropriately cited. All submissions will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be considered for “Best Paper Award.”
Research Papers

Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Submissions are limited to 10 pages. In addition to the regular full-length papers, the Program Committee may accept some for poster presentation of the central idea for which a maximum of 4 proceedings pages will be allowed.
Industrial Experience and Systems Papers

Industrial experience and systems papers are invited that describe original industrial experiences, challenges, and applications, as well as systems to be presented during the conference. Industrial Experience and Systems paper submissions are limited to 10 pages—append “(Industrial Paper)” or “(Systems Paper)” to the title as is appropriate. Accepted Industrial Experience and Systems papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
Ph.D. Dissertation Showcase Papers

Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their Ph.D. research contributions and work-in-progress, limited to 6 pages—append “(Ph.D. Showcase)” to the title. Student authors of accepted papers will be able to present a summary of their research at the conference. Successful Ph.D. showcase papers will appear in the SIGSPATIAL Newsletter.
Demonstration Papers

Authors are invited to submit demo papers describing original demonstrations to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited to 4 pages—append “(Demo Paper)” to the title. Accepted demo papers will appear in the conference proceedings.

At least one author per accepted paper, poster, Ph.D. Dissertation showcase, industrial paper, or demo must register and attend the conference to present the accepted submission. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the published conference proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the conference proceedings.
Workshop Proposals

One-day workshops will be held on November 4, 2014. Workshop proposals are to be submitted in PDF format to the Workshops Chair. The proceedings of the workshops will appear in the ACM Digital Library. All proposers and organizers of accepted workshops must register for the workshop or the workshop will be canceled. Workshop proposal submission deadline is May 1, 2014.
Programming Contest

The ACM SIGSPATIAL CUP 2014, with prizes, is a geospatial-focused algorithm competition.
