GeoS

International Conferences on

Geospatial Semantics (GeoS)

GeoSpatial Semantics (GeoS) is an emerging research area of the spatial information sciences. This is why GeoS conference aims at providing a timely forum for prominent specialists, researchers, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to exchange the state-of-the-art research results in the areas of modeling and processing of GeoSpatial Semantics.  It has been largely recognized that GeoSpatial Semantics play a vital role for the development of the next-generation spatial databases and geographic information systems, as well as specialized geospatial web services.

The original idea of GeoS conferences belongs to Dr. Sergei Levashkin (www.levashkin.com), the founder of conferences who year after year has been elected to perform the honorable positions of the President and Editor in Chief of the books of conference proceedings. To date, the four editions of the conference have attracted about 250 submissions, from which 69 regular and 8 short articles on the subject have been published in Volumes 3799, 4853, 5892, and 6631 of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer-Verlag.  Participants from 35 countries and 5 continents have attended GeoS conferences which were held at different locations in North America and Europe.  According to the Thomson-Reuters Institute of Scientific Information (ISI), the Springer-published books of proceedings arisen from GeoS are the most cited in the area of GeoSpatial Semantics in the world.

Over the years, GeoS conferences earned a world-wide reputation for innovation and depth of the scientific thought exchanged at the conferences.  GeoS traditionally brings together people from industry and academia whose expertise will address issues such as, but not limited to, as long as they address GeoSpatial Semantics issues:

  • Cognitive aspects of geospatial semantics
  • Multicultural aspects of geospatial knowledge
  • Geospatial ontologies
  • Ontology-driven GIS
  • Geospatial semantic models
  • Models and languages for geo-ontologies
  • Alignment and integration of geo-ontologies
  • Formal representations of geospatial data
  • Geospatial data integration and fusion
  • Geospatial semantics-based approaches for query processing
  • Geospatial information retrieval

  • Geospatial semantics similarity
  • Geospatial semantic Web
  • Ontology-based visualization of geospatial data
  • Conceptual models of dynamic geospatial environments
  • Geospatial artificial intelligence
  • Computational geospatial approaches
  • Real-time geospatial systems
  • Techniques to reduce geospatial information overload
  • Context-based approaches for geospatial semantic information
  • Context-based adaptation in GIS
  • Personalization of geospatial semantic services

These cover the state-of-the art research and development in the spatial information sciences and wide range of the applications towards the projects such as the Home Land Security.
