The Tenth International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT 2009, is
concerned with theoretical aspects of space, time, and spatial information. Of special
interest are aspects of "large-scale" space, i.e. spaces too large to be apprehended at once
without technological aid. These include spaces of geographic and environmental scales
in which humans make decisions and carry out actions. Spatial information theory also
deals with the formal and natural description of processes and events in spatial
environments, thus providing a foundation for the design and construction of geographic
information systems (GIS) and for spatial information systems (SIS) in general.
Empirical investigations, formal models, and the use of spatial information technologies
reveal a large number of interesting research questions which require an interdisciplinary
approach for their solution. The COSIT conference series brings together researchers
from many disciplines and topics, in particular:

* Cognitive, Perceptual, and Environmental Psychology
* Geography and Geoinformation Science
* Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Cognitive Science
* Engineering and Human Factors
* Cognitive Anthropology, Psycholinguistics and Linguistics
* Ontology of the Geospatial Domain
* Architecture, Planning, and Environmental Design

An idea of the conference's orientation can be gained from the previous COSIT
proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
series. The following (non-exclusive) topics are indicative of the field of interest:

? activity-based models of spatial
? cognitive structure of spatial
? cooperative work with spatial
? events and processes in geographic
? incomplete or imprecise spatial
? languages of spatial relations
? naive geography/behavioral geography
? navigation by organisms and robots
? ontology of space
? presentation/communication of spatial
? quality issues in geographic
? semantics of geographic information
? social and cultural organization of
? spatial and temporal reasoning
? spatial and social networks
? spatial data integration/interoperability
? spatial decision-support systems
? structure of geographic information
? time in geographic information
? user-interface design/spatialization of
? virtual spaces

At the conference, results from recent research are presented and discussions about
advanced work in progress take place. An international and multidisciplinary program
committee establishes the conference program. Papers are selected through a rigorous
review of full paper contributions by internationally renowned reviewers, based on
relevance to the conference, intellectual quality, scientific significance, novelty, relation
to previously published literature, and clarity of presentation. The proceedings are
published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by the
time of conference. COSIT is also intended as a forum where PhD students can meet,
present their research, and hold discussions with others at a similar stage in their careers.

Prospective authors must submit full papers in PDF format by the deadline above. Papers
should be original works by the authors, not be currently under review by another outlet,
and not submitted elsewhere prior to the notification date. Papers must be in English, and
formatted using the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style. For formatting
instructions, please refer to the information for authors of the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science ( by Springer. The total length of the paper must not
exceed 18 pages, including figures and bibliography; this is approximately 6000 words.
