17th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM GIS 2009)

November 4-6, 2009
Seattle, WA, USA

Call for Papers

The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2009 (ACM GIS 2009) is the seventeenth event of 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 interface considerations, and visualization down to storage management and indexing issues. This year's conference builds on last year's conference great success and on being the premier annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers, students, and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions to this year's ACM GIS.

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.
