Call for Participation - ACMGIS 2007

We would like to bring the upcoming ACM International Symposium on
Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM GIS 2007). It will be
in Seattle in November 7-9, 2007. The invited speakers include
Michael Jones of Google Earth and Franz Leberl of Microsoft-3DI
(Vexcel) and the University of Graz. The information can be found at
http://www.cise.ufl.edu/dept/acmgis2007/index.html and the program is
there as well. The program is also repeated below. We hope that you
are able to come and look forward to seeing you there.

15th International Symposium on
Advances in Geographic Information Systems

Call for Participation

November 7-9, 2007
Seattle, Washington, USA

In cooperation with ACM SIGMETRICS

Sponsored by Microsoft, ORNL, Google, and ESRI


The ACM International Symposium on Advances in Geographic Information
Systems in 2007 (ACM GIS 2007) is the fifteenth 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 symposium provides a
forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual,
design, and implementation aspects of GIS and ranging from
applications, user interface considerations, and visualization down to
storage management and indexing issues. This year, a novelty is that
ACM GIS has separated from its long-time host conference in order to
become independent and more visible to the GIS community, further
expand the spectrum of research topics covered by the symposium, and
grow over the next years. ACM GIS will have two invited speakers, 37
full papers and 29 poster papers (see below).

Invited Speakers
