Call for Abstracts

The local organizing committee welcomes the submission of original contributions that focus on recent developments in spatial analysis, modelling and mapping to support decision-making and planning with direct relevance to the built environment (rural and urban land use). Contributions may be theoretical, methodological, or applied in nature. Research may address - but is not limited to - the following topics:

  • Geographic Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery: Multidimensional Analysis and Visualization, Self-Organizing Maps (SOM), Segmentation, Clustering and Classification, Spatial Regression, Spatial Association Rules, Machine Learning (ML) etc.
  • Spatial Modelling, System Dynamics and Geosimulation: Cellular Automata (CA), Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), System Dynamics (SD), Evolutionary Algorithms, Modeling Dynamic Spatial Processes etc.
  • Multi-Scale Representation and Analysis: Generalization, Multiple Representations, Aggregation / Disaggregation (Up- / Down-scaling), Conflation, Modelling Object Relations, Multi-Granularity, Geovisualization and Mapping etc.

Accepted abstracts will be presented as oral presentations and be published in the digital conference proceedings. Selected post-conference full papers will be eligible for submission to a special issue in an international journal (ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information) or to an edited book in the SPRINGER series entitled Geotechnologies and the Environment.

The deadline for submitting abstracts was August 31, 2015.
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2015
