Call for Papers: GIScience 2020

Poznań, Poland, September 15-18, 2020

Deadlines: Full papers due March 16, 2020; Short papers due May 25, 2020

Submission page for both tracks of GIScience 2020

The 11th International Conference on Geographic Information Science will be held in Poznań, Poland, 15-18 September 2020. Hosted by Adam Mickiewicz University, GIScience 2020 continues the long tradition of the series as a flagship conference for researchers in geographic information science and related disciplines that are interested in spatial and temporal information.

The biennial conference series typically attracts over 300 international participants from academia, industry, and government to advance the state-of-the-art in geographic information science. The first conference day (September 15, 2020) will be dedicated to workshops and tutorials, while the main conference will be taking place on September 16-18, 2020. The conference offers two separate paper tracks, one for full papers and the other for short papers, both of which will undergo full peer-review. Authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to present their work at the conference in an oral presentation or as a poster.

The GIScience conference series is deeply interdisciplinary with contributions frequently involving domains such as geography, earth science, cognitive science, information science, computer science, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, life sciences, and social science. It attracts contributions from experts in geo-visualization, geographic information retrieval, geostatistics, geo-semantics, geosimulation, spatial optimization, transportation, computational geometry, and data structures. Topics of interest are not restricted to the geo-spatial realm but involve spatial and temporal information more broadly.

Since 2018, GIScience proceedings are published in LIPIcs, the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics series ( LIPIcs volumes are peer-reviewed and published according to the principle of open access, i.e., they are available online and free of charge. Each article is published under a Creative Commons CC BY license (, where the authors retain their copyright. Also, each article is assigned a DOI and a URN. The digital archiving of each volume is done in cooperation with the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek/German National Library. A number of other high-standing international conferences have already made the move to LIPIcs.


Contributions are invited from a wide range of disciplines related to geographic information science, such as geography, earth science, cognitive science, information science, computer science, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, life sciences, and social science. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Agent-based modeling
  • Computational geometry
  • Events and processes
  • GeoAI
  • Geo-APIs
  • Geo-knowledge graphs
  • Geo-semantics
  • Geographic information observatories

  • Geosimulation and spatio-temporal modelling
  • Geovisualization and visual analytics
  • High-performance computing algorithms for spatial-temporal data
  • Human-Computer Interaction (with mobile devices)
  • Image classification methods
  • Internet of Things
  • Location privacy
  • Location-Based Services

  • Standardization and interoperability
  • Time series analysis
  • Trajectory and movement analysis
  • Uncertainty quantification and error propagation
  • Virtual reality

December 3, 2019 Webinar: How Asset Operators Can Make Better Decisions Without Changing How They Work

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2019
Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM EST

View Webinar - Registration Required

Today’s newest pipeline monitoring technologies make it easier to evaluate the health of your assets and make decisions about what to repair and when. They can even help you predict potential problems so that weak points in your pipeline can be addressed long before permanent damage or disaster occurs. Is it worth your time to explore and understand how this is possible? Considering that the right data improves the quality of your decision-making and helps you perform your role with greater ease and confidence each day – the answer is ‘yes.’ Getting there begins with taking a look at how you monitor your assets right now, pinpointing the limitations of this status quo, and understanding the options that are available to free you from these limitations.
