The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2018 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2018) is the twenty sixth 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 2018. This year the conference is going to have firm submission deadlines, ending the previous tradition of deadline extensions.
Suggested Geospatial-related topics include but are not limited to the following:
Cartography and Geodesy
Computer Graphics Applications
Computer Vision Applications
Distributed and Parallel Algorithms
Geographic Information Retrieval
Geospatial Architectures and Middleware
GPU and Novel Hardware Solutions
Human Computer Interaction and Visualization
Image and Video Understanding
Location Privacy, Data Sharing and Security
Mobile Systems and Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
Object Tracking and RFIDs
Spatial Analysis and Integration
Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Data Acquisition
Spatio-Temporal Data Analysis
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 Management
Spatio-Temporal Sensor Networks
Spatio-Temporal Stream Processing
Standardization and Interoperability
Storage and Indexing
Urban and Environmental Planning
Visual Languages and Querying
Web and Real-Time Applications
Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. 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, Systems and Industrial Experience Papers
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. In addition to regular research papers, authors are invited to submit systems papers, which focus on novel system architectures and software applications, and industrial experience papers, which describe original industrial experiences, challenges, and practical applications. For these papers, authors should append “(Systems Paper)” or “(Industrial Paper)” to the title, respectively. Submissions are limited to 10 pages. The Program Committee may accept submissions either as 10-page full papers for oral presentations or as 4-page poster papers for poster presentation. Both full and poster papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
Authors are invited to submit demo papers describing original demonstrations to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited to 4 pages and “(Demo Paper)” should be appended to the title. Accepted demo papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
Authors are invited to submit vision papers describing visionary ideas to be presented at the conference. Submissions are limited to 4 pages and “(Vision Paper)” should be appended to the title. Accepted vision papers will appear in the conference proceedings. Awards are expected to be provided to the first, second, and third best vision papers.
Registration and Presentation
At least one author per accepted research, systems, industrial experience, demonstration, or vision paper must register and attend the conference to present the accepted submission. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the conference proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the conference proceedings.
One-day workshops will be held on Tuesday November 6, 2018. Workshop proposals are to be submitted in PDF format to the Workshops Chairs. 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, 2018.
The ACM SIGSPATIAL CUP 2018, with prizes, is a geospatial-focused algorithm competition.
