Call for Papers

GI-Days 2007 will provide a platform for young researchers worldwide to present their work from all sectors of geographic information science. The range of topics will be comparable to the well established series of GIScience conferences, focusing on emerging topics and basic research findings.

GI-Days 2007 will bring together young researchers from the field of geographic information science. We encourage PhD and Master students as well as post-docs to submit papers. Participants of GI-Days 2007 will learn about the diversity of currently ongoing research projects and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and international atmosphere.

Short papers (max 1000 words) can be submitted to present visionary ideas, work in progress and preliminary research results, whereas full papers (max 6000 words) should present substantial results. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Papers must be written and presented in English.

At least on author of every accepted paper has to register to the conference. All accepted papers will be published in the ifgiPrints series (with ISBN). We will ask the authors of the best full papers to submit extended versions for a special issue in a geographic information science journal.

We invite you to be part of the up-and-coming generation of geographic information scientists meeting at GI-Days 2007.
