The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic
Information Systems 2015 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2015) is the twenty-third
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 2015.

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 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Research Papers: Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished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: Authors 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

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.

Vision Papers: Authors are invited to submit vision papers describing
visionary ideas to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited
to 4 pages -- append "(Vision Paper)" to the title.

Presentation: At least one author per accepted paper, poster, vision,
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.

Programming Contest: The ACM SIGSPATIAL CUP 2015, with prizes, is a
geospatial-focused algorithm competition.
