The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic
Information Systems 2009 (ACM GIS 2009) is the seventeenth event of a
series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of
bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners
carrying out research and development in novel systems based on
geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary
discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information
systems. The conference provides a forum for original research
contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation
aspects of GIS ranging from applications, user interface considerations,
and visualization down to storage management and indexing issues. This
year's conference builds on last year's conference great success and on
being the premier annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on
Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers, students, and
practitioners are invited to submit their contributions to this year's
ACM GIS.

PAPER FORMAT

Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research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:

http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html

Papers cannot exceed 10 pages in length. In addition to the regular
full-length papers, the Program Committee may accept some as poster
papers which may be requested to be shortened. All submitted papers
will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the
Program Committee. The acceptance/rejection of papers will be based
on review results. All questions should be addressed to the Program
Committee Chairs. Some accepted submissions may receive a best
paper/poster award.


Ph.D. DISSERTATION SHOWCASE PAPER FORMAT

Ph.D. students are encouraged to submit their Ph.D. research
contributions and work-in-progress. Submissions cannot exceed 6
pages -- Add (Ph.D. Showcase) to the title. Student authors of the
accepted papers will be given an opportunity to present a summary
of their research at the conference. Successful Ph.D. showcase
papers will appear in the ACM SIGSPATIAL Newsletter.


INDUSTRIAL PAPER FORMAT

Authors are invited to submit industrial experience papers that
describe their original industrial experiences, challenges, and
applications to be presented during the conference. Industrial
paper submissions cannot exceed 10 pages -- Add (Industrial Paper)
to the title. The accepted industrial experience papers will appear
in the Conference Proceedings.


DEMONSTRATION PAPER FORMAT

Authors are invited to submit demo papers that describe their original
demonstrations to be presented during the conference. Demo paper
submissions cannot exceed 2 pages -- Add (Demo Paper) to the title. The
demo papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings.


SUBMISSION

Submissions will be made electronically and online only at:

http://acmgis09.cs.umn.edu

One author per accepted paper, poster, PhD. Dissertation showcase,
industrial paper, or demo is required to register and attend the
conference and to present the accepted submission . Otherwise, the
accepted submission will not appear in the published conference
proceedings or in the ACM Digital Library version of the conference
proceedings. All questions should be addressed to the Program Committee
Chairs.
