Third International Conference on Geospatial Semantics (GeoS 2009)

Geospatial semantics is an emerging research theme in the domain of geographic information systems and spatial databases. The previous editions of the conference – GeoS 2005 and GeoS 2007 in late November (Mexico City, Mexico) were highly successful. We have received about 100 submissions, from which 30 regular and 8 short articles have been published in Volume 3799 and Volume 4853 of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science respectively. People from 28 countries and 5 continents have attended the GeoS conferences.

The third edition GeoS 2009 aims at providing a forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art research results in the areas of modeling and processing of geospatial semantics. Geospatial semantics play an important role for next-generation spatial databases and geographic information systems, as well as specialized geospatial web services. This conference traditionally brings together researchers whose expertise will address issues such as:

  • Theories for geospatial semantic information
  • Formal representations of geospatial data
  • Models and languages for geoontologies
  • Alignment and integration of geoontologies
  • Integration of semantics into spatial query processing
  • Spatial information retrieval
  • Ontology-driven GIS
  • Geospatial Semantic Web
  • Multicultural aspects of spatial knowledge
  • Cognitive aspects of geospatial semantics
  • Measuring semantic similarity between spatial datasets
  • Representing context for geospatial semantic information
  • Semantic Sensor Web
  • Ontology-based visualization of geospatial data
  • Conceptual models of dynamic geospatial environments
  • Personalization of geospatial semantic services
