In 2006, ACM-GIS comes full circle and returns to where it started:
Arlington, Virginia. The 2006 International Symposium of ACM GIS will be
the fourteenth of a series of symposia/workshops that began in 1993 with the
aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners
carrying out research and development in novel systems in which geospatial
data and knowledge is central.

symposium has a tradition of fostering interdisciplinary discussions and
research in all aspects of geographic information systems. It provides a
forum for original research contributions and practical system design,
implementation, and applications of spatial database technology and GIS.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Computational geometry
  • Middleware architectures
  • Spatial data mining
  • Mobile and ubiquitous computing
  • Data modeling
  • Multiple representations
  • Data quality
  • Novel and challenging applications
  • Geosensor networks
  • Query processing and optimization
  • Spatial and spatiotemporal indexing (incl. metadata and ontologies)
  • Graphical aspects
  • Tracking of mobile objects
  • Real-time spatio-temporal applications
  • Location-based services
  • Privacy management for location-based services
  • Image databases
  • Similarity search
  • Meta data management for data quality
  • Spatial data integration and public data repositories
  • Interoperability and standards
  • Spatial reasoning
  • Traffic and transportation telematics
  • Virtual reality and 3D
  • Augmented georeality
  • Visual query languages
  • Management of raster and vector data
  • Web applications

Authors are invited to submit full papers (in English, 11pt font, not
exceeding 10 pages, in PDF format) reporting original and unpublished
research results on the above or related topics. All submitted papers will
be refereed for quality, originality and relevance by the Program Committee.
The acceptance/rejection of the papers will be based on the review results.
All questions should be addressed to the program committee chair.
