Call For Papers


Dear colleagues,

we are inviting papers for the

GeoInformatica:
Special Issue on Spatial Computing for Urbanization Research

a special issue edited by me and my colleages Xiao Xiang Zhu and Hannes Taubenböck.

We are seeking high quality submissions related to how spatial data and spatial computing is being used in order to understand urbanization and urban dynamics.

The deadline for submissions is December 15th, 2018. Please find all details in the attached CfP.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!


Best regards,
Martin

==================================
About this Issue
==================================


In 2016, 54.5 percent of the world’s population lived in cities. However, the U.N. predicts (The World’s Cities 2016) that this number grows to 60% in 2030 and a third of the human population on earth will live in large cities with more than a half a million inhabitants. A better understanding of the inner workings of these cities and concepts to use information technology in order to increase the efficiency of these cities is crucial for developing strategies towards sustainability. Given this increasing importance of urban areas, the increase in spatial data acquisition possibilities including sensor networks, satellite imagery, crowd-sourcing, and social networks opens a novel perspective for a data-driven science of urbanization. The main question of urban computing is how digital information and computational approaches can help to remedy problems arising for urban planning, social cohesion, urban design, urban life, urban mobility, urban emission reduction, and urban economy due to the increasing speed of urbanization. This special section shall collect research devoted to the development of new methods in the field of spatial computing with impact on urbanization research and smart cities.


Topics of Interest
==================


This special section addresses the development and application of geospatial computing technology for new findings in urban geography. This includes techniques with a limited spatial extent covering single cities as well as more global perspectives on urbanization. The list of topics includes, but is not limited to

Big Data Infrastructures for Urban Analytics

Mining and Visual Analytics of Urban Data

Transferrable Models for Large Scale Urban Analysis

Parallel Scalable Algorithms for Urban Analytics (Hadoop, Spark, OpenMP, MPI, etc.)

Urban Sensor Network Data Acquisition, Processing, and Analytics

Multimodal data fusion in Urban Regions

Location-based Services and Interactive Applications for Urban Regions

Understanding Urban Transportation Systems

Semantic Technologies and Smart Cities

Ontologies for Unified Urban Studies

Trajectory and Movement Analysis

Crowd-Sourcing

Social Network Analysis

Classification or Urban Regions (e.g,. Local Climate Zones, Building Functions)

Semantic Segmentation of Remote Sensing Imagery for Urban Mapping

Acquisition, Management, and Classification of 3D/4D data (e.g., point clouds, city models, change detection, etc.)

Urban Applications from Data (Urban Planning and Design, Urban Life, Mobility and Public Transport, Environmental Aspects)

Submissions and Reviews Procedures
==================================

Special Issues are handled in the normal way via the online Editorial Manager system found at https://gein.edmgr.com. Please choose the article type “SI: Spatial Computing for Urbanization Research.” Special Issue articles should fulfill all the standard requirements of any GeoInformatica (GEIN) article. Authors should note that the same criteria apply to articles in Special Issues as to regular articles. Special Issue articles must not consist of overviews of the authors' previously published work, e.g. peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, official reports, etc. All papers will undergo the same rigorous GEIN review process. Please refer to the GEIN website for detailed instructions on paper submission: http://www.springer.com/10707


Important Dates
===============
Deadline for submissions: December 15th, 2018
Decision / First round of reviews: March 15th, 2019
Minor Revisions Due: April 15th, 2019
Camera Ready: May 15th, 2019
