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) www.geosco.org 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 www.geosco.org 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:
