Below is the CALL FOR PAPERS - FIRST CALL
1st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Spatial Semantics and Ontologies (SSO) 2011
Tuesday November 1, 2011
In Conjunction with the 19th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2011)
Semantic technologies are a new and emerging area. Semantics, ontologies, and the Semantic Web are just starting to be practiced by the spatial and the computer science communities. Geospatial applications needing semantics are still being identified for problems such as references to location, geographic scale, locational analysis, spatial data user interface, and many more. The design and development of tools to meet application needs are active and challenging research areas. Although the medical and life sciences formed the early domains to promote and use semantic technologies, there is now strong interest in researching what is needed in the spatial and geospatial domains. The purpose of this workshop is to promote research regarding semantics as it pertains to the spatial domain.
Suggested Paper Topics (other topics are welcome):
* Research regarding semantics and geospatial data
* Systems using semantic technology in the geospatial domain
* Research in computer architectures that incorporate semantic components
* Technology to create and integrate geospatial ontologies
* Handling spatial data within semantic languages or semantics within spatial languages
* Semantic and ontology research and application in cyberinfrastructure and distributed systems
* Survey specifying the value-added use of geospatial ontologies
* One or more use cases delineating semantic needs for geospatial data, even if solutions do not yet exist
Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at:
All submissions will be reviewed by three members of the program committee.
At least one author must register to present an accepted paper. Registration is through the main ACM SIGSPATIAL site. We are working on the possibility of having selected papers be considered for journal publication.
Papers should be about 8 pages for more complete work. Shorter papers for other work are also acceptable. This allows for high quality research papers and also the presentation of new ideas, started work, and use cases. For example, because of the newness of the field, the presentation of use cases needing semantic solutions would be of value in addition to completed work. Submission is at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sso2011
Because the spatial area together with semantics is emerging in the computer science realm, we would like to give an increased number of people an opportunity to present. To accommodate this, there will also be time for lightning talks for the audience to make comments or quickly present their work.
Submissions: 21 July
Acceptances: 22 August
Camera Ready: 5 September
