My Best,


                           GIScience 2010

  Sixth International Conference on Geographic Information Science

           Zurich, Switzerland, September 14-17, 2010

                         CALL FOR PAPERS

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  
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  
(Sep. 14) and the main conference (Sep. 15-17) will take place at the
University of Zurich, Irchel campus, featuring state-of-the-art  
facilities within a park-like setting. The conference site is located  
20 minutes from both downtown and Zurich Airport, and is easily  
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

Since GIScience 2010 focuses on advances in the fundamentals of  
information science, submission of pure application papers is  
To accommodate the variety of publication cultures within an
interdisciplinary research community, GIScience 2010 provides two  
submission tracks: full papers and extended abstracts.

* Full paper track
Publication in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)

Full papers, consisting of maximum 14-page manuscripts, will be  
reviewed by at least three members of the international program  
High-quality submissions will be accepted for presentation at the
conference and published in the Springer LNCS
(www.springeronline.com/lncs). Manuscripts must describe original work
that has neither been previously published, nor is currently under  
elsewhere. Papers must be written in English according to the
GIScience-specific Springer LNCS formatting guidelines. For detailed
guidelines, see http://www.giscience2010.org/XXX.

* Extended abstracts track
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  
and, if accepted, selected for oral or poster presentation. Extended
abstracts must be written in English according to the formatting
guidelines to be published on the conference web site.

GIScience 2010 pre-conference workshops and tutorials will be held on
September 14, 2010 at the University of Zurich, Irchel campus. Workshops
and tutorials provide two modes of complementary fora to the main
conference. Thus, we specifically encourage tutorials introducing new
ideas, and workshops based around small group discussions on emerging
topics that facilitate dialogue across disciplinary boundaries. One-day
mini-conferences filled only with paper presentations are discouraged.

Workshop and Tutorial proposals due   January 7, 2010
Workshop and Tutorial notification   January 29, 2010
