13th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory
L’Aquila, Italy, September 4-8, 2017
CALL FOR POSTER CONTRIBUTIONS

Poster submission deadline extended to May 22, 2017

Established in 1993, COSIT (Conference On Spatial Information Theory) is a biennial international conference series concerned with theoretical aspects of space and spatial information.  COSIT was started to establish a counterpoint to several concurrent applied GIS conferences at which reports on applications and development in GIS technology were made but often without a contribution to scientific theory and literature. The focus at COSIT from the beginning has been on theories of space and time relevant to the establishment and the advancement of (geo)spatial information science.
 
Spatial information theory is concerned with all aspects of space and spatial environments as experienced, represented and elaborated by humans, other animals and artificial agents. The scope of the conference includes both the conceptualization of frameworks for specific spatio-temporal domains, as well as the development of general theories of space and time and theories of spatial and temporal information. Papers may address aspects of spatial information from any disciplinary perspective including (but not limited to) the following:
– Cognitive Science, Vision Science, Environmental and Behavioral Psychology 
– Geography and Geographic Information Science 
– Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence 
– Engineering, Human Factors and Cognitive Ergonomics 
– Cognitive Robotics and Cognitive Informatics
– Mathematics, Logic, Philosophy and Ontology
– Cognitive Anthropology, Psycholinguistics and Linguistics 
– Architecture, Planning, and Environmental Design

Format

COSIT 2017, the thirteenth conference in the series, will be held in L’Aquila, Italy, on September 4th-8th 2017. September 4th will be dedicated to satellite workshops and tutorials and September 7th will host a doctoral forum. The main conference is a three-day event, taking place from September 5th to September 7th. Two types of scientific contributions are going to be invited: Full Papers and Posters.

– cognitive structure of spatial knowledge
– cognitive aspects of geographic information
– cooperative work with spatial information
– events and processes in geographic space and time
– human sensors in space and time
– incomplete or imprecise spatial knowledge
– knowledge representation for space and time
– languages of spatial relations
– naive geography/behavioral geography
– navigation and wayfinding, including robot navigation
– ontology of space and time
– presentation and communication of spatial information
– qualitative and commonsense spatial representation
– quality issues in geographic information
– semantics of geographic information
– social and cultural organization of space
– spatial and temporal language
– spatial aspects of social networks
– spatial data integration/interoperability
– spatial decision­support
– structure of geographic information
– theory and practice of spatial and temporal reasoning
– time in geographic information
– user­interface design/spatialization of interfaces
– virtual spaces
– volunteered geographic information
 

Posters

Posters are intended for presenting to the community those pieces of work that are not yet mature for a full publication. For example, on-going work, project reports, preliminary ideas, and small applications. Accepted poster submissions will be published in a separate volume in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography (http://www.springer.com/series/7418), alongside the workshop proceedings. Poster content shall be summarized in a two-pages abstract, written in English, and prepared using either the Springer Word Document Template or the Springer Latex Document Template (contributed books): https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/book-authors-
editors/manuscript-preparation/5636. Poster contributions must be submitted in PDF format via email at poster@cosit2017.org. Poster submissions will be screened
for acceptance by COSIT 2017’s Program Committee. Accepted submissions will be presented in parallel at the conference within a dedicated poster session.
