The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2010 (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2010) is the eighteenth event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in 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 GIS ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to storage management and indexing issues. This 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 GIS 2010.

Paper Format

Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at:

Submission length is limited to 10 pages. In addition to the regular full-length papers, the Program Committee may accept some as poster papers which may be requested to be shortened. All submitted papers will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be considered for "Best Paper Award".

Ph.D. Dissertation Showcase Paper Format

Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their Ph.D. research contributions and work-in-progress. Submissions cannot exceed 6 pages -- Add (Ph.D. Showcase) to the title. Student authors of the accepted papers will be given an opportunity to present a summary of their research at the conference. Successful Ph.D. showcase papers will appear in the ACM SIGSPATIAL Newsletter.

Industrial Paper Format

Authors are invited to submit industrial experience papers that describe their original industrial experiences, challenges, and applications to be presented during the conference. Industrial paper submission length is limited to 10 pages -- Add (Industrial Paper) to the title. The accepted industrial experience papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings.

Demonstration Paper Format

Authors are invited to submit demo papers that describe their original demonstrations to be presented during the conference. Submission length is limited to 2 pages -- Add (Demo Paper) to the title. The accepted demo papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings.


Submissions should be uploaded through the submission site at:

One author per accepted paper, poster, Ph.D. Dissertation showcase, industrial paper, or demo is required to register and attend the conference and 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. All questions should be addressed to the Program Committee Chairs.

Important Dates (Research, Ph.D, and Demo papers)

Abstract Submission: June 17, 2010, 11:59 PM EST
Full Paper Submission: June 24, 2010, 11:59 PM EST
Notification of Acceptance: Sept. 2, 2010
Camera Ready Copy: Sept. 9, 2010
Conference Date: Nov. 2-5, 2010

Workshop Proposals

ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2010 will also hold one day co-located workshops on the day immediately preceding the first day of the conference. Hence, ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2010 invites proposals for workshops to be submitted in pdf format to the Workshop Chair, Markus Schneider (, by May 15, 2010. The duration of a workshop is one day. Workshops will take place on November 2, 2010, at the location of the conference. The proceedings of the workshops are expected to be published jointly with the conference proceedings and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. For details on how to prepare a workshop proposal and what the workshops entail, see, or read the special "Call for Workshop Proposals" at the end of this "Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals".

Important Dates (Workshops)

Proposal Submission Deadline: May 15, 2010
Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2010
