Call For Papers

The Ninth International Conference on Geographic Information Science is co-organized by McGill University, Université Laval, and University of Saskatchewan. GIScience 2016 continues a highly successful series of conferences started in 2000 that regularly brings together approximately 300 international participants from academia, industry, and government organizations to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art in Geographic Information Science.

September 27, 2016 is dedicated to Workshops and Tutorials. The main conference takes place from September 28 to 30, 2016, and consists of two refereed paper tracks: Full Papers and Extended Abstracts. The GIScience conference series always has had a focus on fundamental research themes and questions. Papers advancing the field methodologically or theoretically are encouraged; papers strictly dealing with applications are discouraged.

Contributions are invited from a wide range of disciplines related to Geographic Information Science, including :

Geography
Cognitive science
Computer science
Engineering

Information science
Linguistics
Mathematics
Philosophy

Psychology
Social science
(Geo)Statistics
Data science

We welcome traditional topics in GIScience. We also encourage papers on new and emergent fields as well as under-represented fields, including:

GIScience of the Internet of Things
GeoSemantic Web
Sensor Geomatics

Critical GIS
Locational aspects of autonomous aerial and ground-based vehicles
Advances in Geosimulation Modeling
