dbjapanの皆様 京都大学の手塚です。 隔年で開かれる空間情報に関する国際会議 COSIT'07 の CFP を転送させていただきます。 2007年はメルボルンで開催です。 論文集は LNCS として出版されます。 ------------------------------------------------------------- *** Sorry for cross-posting *** SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS ------------------------------------------------------------- COSIT'07 Eighth International Conference on Spatial Information Theory 19-23 September 2007 Mt Eliza, Melbourne, Australia http://www.cosit.info ------------------------------------------------------------- General Chairs: Stephan Winter (U Melbourne), Benjamin Kuipers (U Texas) Local Co-Chairs: Matt Duckham (U Melbourne) and Lars Kulik (U Melbourne) Chair of Doctoral Colloquium: Alexander Klippel (U Melbourne) KEY DATES ========= Full papers due 2 March 2007 Notification on acceptance 14 May 2007 Applications for Doctoral Colloquium due 20 May 2007 Proposals for posters due 20 May 2007 (CHANGED) Doctoral Colloquium notification 15 June 2007 Poster notification 15 June 2007 Student scholarship notification 15 June 2007 Final camera-ready digital manuscripts due 22 June 2007 Author registration deadline 22 June 2007 Early registration deadline 22 June 2007 COSIT'07 Workshops (see below for details) 19 September 2007 COSIT・7 Technical Program 20-22 September 2007 COSIT・7 Doctoral Colloquium 23 September 2007 TOPIC AND TARGET GROUP ====================== The Eighth International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT'07, is concerned with theoretical aspects of space, time, and spatial information. Of special interest are aspects of "large-scale" space, i.e. spaces too large to be apprehended at once without technological aid. These include spaces of geographic and environmental scales in which humans make decisions and carry out actions. Spatial information theory also deals with the formal and natural description of processes and events in spatial environments, thus providing a foundation for the design and construction of geographic information systems (GIS) and for spatial information systems (SIS) in general. Empirical investigations, formal models, and the use of spatial information technologies reveal a large number of interesting research questions which require an interdisciplinary approach for their solution. The COSIT conference series brings together researchers from many disciplines and topics, in particular: * Cognitive, Perceptual, and Environmental Psychology * Geography and Geoinformation Science * Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Cognitive Science * Engineering and Human Factors * Cognitive Anthropology, Psycholinguistics and Linguistics * Ontology of the Geospatial Domain * Architecture, Planning, and Environmental Design An idea of the conference's orientation can be gained from the previous COSIT proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The following (non-exclusive) topics (listed alphabetically) are indicative of the field of interest: * activity-based models of spatial knowledge * cognitive structure of spatial knowledge * cooperative work with spatial information * events and processes in geographic space * incomplete or imprecise spatial knowledge * languages of spatial relations * naive geography/behavioral geography * navigation by organisms and robots * ontology of space * presentation/communication of spatial information * quality issues in geographic information * social and cultural organization of space * spatial and temporal reasoning * spatial data integration/interoperability * spatial decision-support systems * structure of geographic information * time in geographic information * user-interface design/spatialization of interfaces CONFERENCE PROGRAM ================== At the conference, results from recent research are presented and discussions about advanced work in progress take place. The conference program is established by an international and multidisciplinary program committee. Papers are selected through a rigorous review of full paper contributions by internationally renowned reviewers, based on relevance to the conference, intellectual quality, scientific significance, novelty, relation to previously published literature, and clarity of presentation. The proceedings are published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series before the conference. Before the conference, workshops and tutorials on topics relevant to the conference are offered. Topical meetings ("birds-of-a-feather sessions") can be organized. A Doctoral Colloquium, facilitated by a small panel of experienced researchers, will conclude the conference. It is intended as a forum where PhD students can meet, present their research, and hold discussions with others at a similar stage in their careers. SUBMISSIONS =========== Prospective authors must submit full papers in pdf format by the deadline above. Papers must be in English, and formatted using the Springer "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" style. For formatting instructions, please refer to the information for authors of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) by Springer. The total length of the paper must not exceed 18 pages, including figures and bibliography; this is approximately 6000 words. SCHOLARSHIPS ============ Thanks to the generosity of Google, our doctoral colloquium sponsor, and PSMA Australia Ltd, one of our conference sponsors, there will be different student scholarships available. Details on the COSIT・7 webpage. KEYNOTES ======== * Mandyam Srinivasan, Research School of Biological Sciences, Australian National University, Australian Federation Fellow, elected to the Australian Academy of Science in 1995 and to the Royal Society of London in 2001. 鉄rini cracked the code of vision in the world of bees, demonstrating that the motion of the passing landscape provides the bee with a third dimension to vision. This is how bees regulate their flight and ensure a safe landing・(from a laudation on the occasion of the 2006 Prime Minister痴 Prize for Sciene). * Kim Marriott, Information Technology, Monash University, Australia. Kim is interested in the formalization of understanding and reasoning with diagrammatic notations such as finite state diagrams or house plans, in particular, grammatical and logical approaches to the specification and recognition of such visual languages. * tbd.

The conference venue is located above the cliffs of Port Phillip Bay, with wonderful views, an English park landscape, and a private beach. Mount Eliza is about one hour's drive from Melbourne's international airport Tullamarine (MEL). A shuttle service will operate from the airport to the conference site at Mt Eliza. Melbourne is well-connected, with direct flights from major cities around the world. September is low season for traveling to Australia and several airlines offer budget tickets. The latest travel and conference information will appear on the COSIT'07 web site http://www.cosit.info as it becomes available.
