Last Call for Extended Abstracts GIScience 2010

GIScience 2010


Sixth International Conference on Geographic Information Science

Zurich, Switzerland, September 14-17, 2010





Zurich, Switzerland will be the host city of the sixth international GIScience conference, continuing a highly successful series of biennial conferences that commenced in 2000. GIScience 2010 aims to bring together scientists from academia, industry, and government to discuss the state-of-the-art in geographic information science, and explore emerging research directions. The conference focuses on basic research findings across all sectors of the field and has two refereed submission tracks:

full papers and extended abstracts. Pre-conference workshops and tutorials (Sep. 14) and the main conference (Sep. 15-17) will take place at the University of Zurich, Irchel campus, featuring state-of-the-art conference facilities within a park-like setting. The conference site is located only 20 minutes from both downtown and Zurich Airport, and is easily accessible through public transport.



Fundamental research findings and emerging topics across all sectors of geographic information science (GIScience) are welcomed. The conference attracts leading researchers from all cognate disciplines to reflect the interdisciplinary breadth of GIScience, including (but not limited to) geography, cognitive science, computer science, engineering, information science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, social science, and (geo)statistics.


Since GIScience 2010 focuses on advances in the fundamentals of geographic information science, submission of pure application papers is discouraged.

To accommodate the variety of publication cultures within an interdisciplinary research community, two refereed submission tracks are provided: full papers (NOW CLOSED) and extended abstracts.



Publication in separate Conference Proceedings Volume

Extended abstracts of 1500 words, describing work in progress, will be reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee and, if accepted, selected for oral or poster presentation. Extended abstracts must be written in English according to the formatting guidelines published at http://www.giscience2010.org/index.php?page=submission

and submitted using EasyChair:
