3rd International Workshop on Conceptual Modeling for Geographic Information Systems
<http://lbdwww.epfl.ch/e/conferences/CoMoGIS2006/>http://lbdwww.epfl.ch/e/conferences/CoMoGIS2006/


in conjunction with 25th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2006)

November 6-9, 2006
Tucson, Arizona


The recent advances in remote sensing and GPS technologies have increased the production, collection and diffusion of geo-referenced data, thus requiring the rapid development and the wide deployment of various geographic information systems. With the popularity of World Wide Web and the diversity of GISs on the Internet, geographic information can now be available via personal devices anytime and anywhere. Nowadays GIS is emerging as a common information infrastructure, which penetrates into more and more aspects of our society, and converges with most areas in the IT scenario, such as office automation, workflow, digital libraries, Web searching and virtual reality. This has given rise to new challenges related to the development of conceptual models for GIS. Recently several new research approaches have been applied in the development of geo-spatial systems to accommodate new users requirements.

The workshop on Conceptual Modeling for GIS is intended to bring together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in geographic information systems and conceptual modeling, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions in all aspects of these two fields. The workshop provides a forum for original research contributions and practical experiences of conceptual modeling for GIS and will highlight future trends in this area. The workshop has been successively held in conjunction with the ER conference in 2004 and 2005.

We invite submissions that address theoretical, technical and practical issues of conceptual modeling for GIS. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to (as long as they are related to new research approaches in conceptual modeling and GIS):

-Spatial data modeling
-Spatio-temporal data modeling
-Conceptual and logical models for GIS
-GIS services modeling
-Ontologies for GIS applications
-Semantic issues in GIS
-Schema mapping and evolution
-Spatial data query and retrieval
-Geographical search engines
-Spatial information grid
-Digital geographical libraries
-Query languages and interfaces
-Spatial information integration
-Spatial information visualisation
-Spatial information personalisation
-Spatial data mining and data warehousing
-Location-based services
-Peer-to-peer computing for GIS
-Interoperability and standards
-Metadata management
-GIS Middleware architectures

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

Important dates
---------------------
Paper abstracts: April 3, 2006
Full papers: April 10, 2006
Notification: June 14, 2006
Camera-ready papers: July 12, 2006

All paper proposals should be submitted in Springer format (details on the format at <http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) via email to Christelle Vangenot (<mailto:christelle.vangenot [at] epfl.ch>christelle.vangenot [at] epfl.ch) containing the title and abstract of your paper, authors' names, e-mail and post addresses, and phone and fax numbers. Attach your submission (as a MIME attachment) in PDF, Word, or portable postscript format to the same message. The suggested number of pages is 14, and the maximum number of pages is 16. Manuscripts not submitted in the LNCS style or having more than 16 pages will not be reviewed and thus automatically rejected. (The final, camera-ready version must not exceed 14 pages to avoid page charges.)
