[ Call for Participation ]

"Joint Workshop on Ubiquitous, Pervasive and Internet Mapping (UPIMap2004)"
 Tokyo, Japan, September 7 - 9, 2004
<http://ubimap.net/workshop2004/>

International Cartographic Association (ICA) (http://www.icaci.org/)
  - Commission on Ubiquitous Mapping (http://ubimap.net/)
  - Commission on Maps and the Internet (http://maps.unomaha.edu/ica/)

The ICA Commissions on Ubiquitous Mapping and Maps and the Internet
announce a workshop in Tokyo at the beginning of September 2004.
The workshop is sponsored by the Commission on Ubiquitous Mapping,
the Commission on Maps and the Internet,
the Center for Spatial Information Science (CSIS) of University of
Tokyo, the Geographic Information Systems Association and the Japan
Cartographers Association. The ICA Commissions were formed in 1999
and 2003 respectively in response to the rapid growth in the use
of electronic networks to distribute maps and spatial data, and
rapid diffusion of new mobile devices. The purpose of the workshop
is to bring together international specialists in the field of
Mobile mapping, Location based Services and Internet mapping, and
to disseminate information to a broader audience on new
developments and major areas of research.

<Important Dates>
April 30, 2004 - Abstracts Due (300-1000 words)
May 31, 2004 - Notification of Acceptance
July 31, 2004 - Working Papers due for Paper Sessions
September 7 - 9, 2004 - Workshop in Tokyo

<General Information>
The Workshop will focus on a variety of issues related to the
distribution and utilization of maps and location based information
through mobile devices and the Internet. Working papers should
address the terms of reference of the commissions:

[ICA Commission on Ubiquitous Mapping]
This new commission deals with a "well-mapped society" where maps
will be available anywhere and anytime.  Today, the number of way
maps and geo-spatial information are likely to be employed is very
large and diverse.  As the individual gains the ability to access
relevant spatial information on demand, human behavior will be
influenced in interesting ways. The commission concentrates more
on theoretical than practical issues.  Its terms of reference are:
1. To organize regional workshop including site observation to
   comprehend the contemporary situation of mobile, car-navigation
   and location based mapping
2. To clarify the similarity and difference in comparing variant
   systems to establish an evaluation scheme
3. To place the notion of Ubiquitous Mapping in domain of
   Theoretical Cartography

[ICA Commission on Maps and the Internet]
The Internet has increased the distribution of maps and re-defined
how maps are used. This commission explores the potential of the
Internet to improve the quality of maps as a form of communication.
1. Focus attention on disseminating maps and spatial data through
   distributed electronic networks. Product: Journal articles and
   web pages.
2. Examine Internet map usage and project future areas of growth.
3. Examine web map user issues to better serve user needs.
4. Promote the exchange of information about effective Internet
   mapping for an international audience.
5. Improve user access to maps by examining the potential of
   Internet map metadata.
6. Promote instruction on Internet mapping through collaboration
   / coordination with other ICA commissions
In conjunction with the working papers, the workshop will also
feature live demonstrations.

<Who Should Attend?>
Anyone interested in the use of mobile devices and/or the Internet
for the distribution and use of maps and spatial data:
- members of academia who wish to familiarize themselves with
  recent research developments and who are keen to develop new
  perspectives;
- practitioners from mapping organizations as well as software
  industry representatives who wish to contribute their experience
  with commercial Internet mapping software and explore new
  concepts and opportunities for software development;
- students of cartography who wish to have a better understanding
  of the major areas of research related to the distribution of
  maps through the Internet.
The participation of young researchers is particularly encouraged.

<About the Location>
The meeting will be held at the Komaba II Campus of the University
 of Tokyo.
(http://www.csis.u-tokyo.ac.jp/english_2004/location.html)
The campus is located near Shibuya, 20 minutes from Tokyo Central
Station by train. Tokyo is the capital of Japan and one of the
largest economic centers of eastern part of Asia. You can find
almost everything in the city from ultra modern electronic
equipments to traditional goods.
 (http://www.tourism.metro.tokyo.jp/english/index.html)
Tokyo is situated in the central part of the Japanese archipelago.
It is easy to make further trips to visit other sites of interest,
such as Kyoto, for example.(http://www.jnto.go.jp/)

<Cost>
A workshop participation fee will be charged by the organizers
- $200 for attendees, $100 for students. This includes a technical
tour. There are many good hotels near the university. The price
of a room is from $70 a night for a single to $100 for a twin room.

<Resulting Publication>
Working papers will appear on the commission's home page at
<http://ubimap.net/workshop2004/>. Participants are encouraged
to submit final papers to scientific journals and, depending
on the number of submissions, an edited volume of papers may
be published in book form.

<Call for Abstracts>
Participants will be selected from responses to this Call for
Participation. If you wish to participate in the workshop,
please submit a 300 - 1000 words abstract BY 30 APRIL 2004
to <morita [at] k.hosei.ac.jp>. The abstracts should be no longer
than 1000 words in length and indicate whether you plan to
submit a working paper and/or present a live demonstration.
Include title, complete address information for all authors,
e-mail address and abstract within an e-mail message.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 31 MAY 2004.
The selected participants will then also receive more
detailed information on the particulars of the workshop
and local arrangements (accommodation, etc.).
