Call For Papers

The Scientific and Technical Programme Committee invites authors to submit papers, abstracts or posters to the GeoCart'2010 Conference. We are planning two separate publications:

1. A book and supporting CD-Rom published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography series, which will contain the best full GeoCart'2010 papers submitted, subject to an international review process

2. Conference proceedings on CD-Rom, which collates
- abstracts of the Springer papers
- papers that did not pass the review process for the book, but were accepted for either paper or poster presentation at the GeoCart'2010 Conference
- papers and (extended) abstracts that were specifically submitted for the GeoCart'2010 Conference proceedings (either paper or poster, subject to a local review process)
- unrefereed professional paper and poster submissions

Therefore, there are three streams of submission for the conference:

Academic papers of up to 8000 words to be considered for publication in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography series, subject to a double blind review from two international referees. Papers must be formatted according to the Springer guidelines and template and be in a camera-ready state. Submission of the paper will be in MS Word format via the EasyChair conference management system. It is expected that authors of accepted papers in this category will give an oral presentation.

Extended abstracts or papers of up to 5000 words to be reviewed by a local committee for publication in the GeoCart proceedings. Papers and abstracts must be formatted according to the GeoCart'2010 Guidelines for Authors. Submission of the paper will be in MS Word format via the EasyChair conference management system. It is expected that authors of accepted papers in this category will give an oral presentation
Unrefereed abstracts or papers of up to 5000 words. These may be professional submissions and / or poster submissions. Papers, abstracts and posters must be formatted according to the GeoCart'2010 Guidelines for Authors. Submission of the paper will be in MS Word format via the EasyChair conference management system. It is expected that authors of abstracts / papers in this category will either give an oral or poster presentation.

If a submitted paper is accepted, one of the following will apply, depending on the results of the review:
accepted for the book and oral presentation, subject to any recommendations of the reviewers and editors not accepted (or submitted) for the book but accepted for oral presentation at the conference and included in the conference proceedings, subject to review recommendations not accepted (or submitted) for the book but accepted for poster presentation at the conference and included in the conference proceedings, subject to review recommendations.

Those submitting specifically for the Conference Proceedings and not the book, would be assigned one of the latter two decision options, subject to a local review.

Principal authors of the accepted abstracts, papers and posters are eligible for a 10% discount on the Scientific and Technical Programme registration fee.
