Beyond GIScience 2014If you are interested in organising GIScience 2016, please download the call for proposals.
The Eighth International Conference on Geographic Information
Science is hosted by Vienna University of Technology, Austria.
GIScience 2014 continues a highly successful series
of conferences started in 2000 that regularly brings together more
than 200 international participants from academia, industry, and
government organizations to discuss and advance the
state-of-the-art in Geographic Information Science.
September 23, 2014 is dedicated to Workshops and Tutorial. The main conference takes place from September 24 to 26, 2014, and offers two distinct submission streams: Full Papers and Extended Abstracts.
GIScience conference series has always had a focus on fundamental research themes and questions. GIScience 2014 strongly welcomes articles and proposals covering emerging topics and fundamental research findings across all sectors of Geographic Information Science. The submission of papers dealing with GIS applications is discouraged.
Contributions are invited on all topics spanning disciplines cognate to Geographic Information Science, including (but not limited to):
- Cognitive science
- Computer science
- Information science
- Social science
Full papers will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three members
of the international program committee. High-quality submissions
will be accepted for presentation at the conference and published
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series by Springer. Manuscripts
must describe original work that has neither been published
before, nor is currently under review elsewhere. Papers must be

Workshops & Tutorials
Workshops and tutorials provide complementary discussion
environments for presenting and discussing ideas in a less formal
and more open way than is possible at the main conference. Such
environments provide an excellent opportunity for researchers to
present work-in-progress and get detailed feedback. Workshops and
tutorials are welcome on all topics of interest to GIScience
attendees and should be focused either on in-depth topics or on
novel and emerging research areas. For details on the submission
format see the Call for Workshops &
Workshop and tutorial proposals must be written in English and
submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
