While some geo-datasets offer global coverage and spatial methods attempt to be generic, applications are considerably of local nature. Furthermore, local geographic and social-cultural idiosyncrasies lead to heterogeneity in data production practices and interpretation of abstract geographical concepts. These are limiting factors for the transferability of methods and theoretical approaches. While long acknowledged, these challenges are still pending solutions and questions regarding conceptual, formal, and operational approaches for considering the cultural and geographical aspects of geo-information remain open.
By bringing together researchers dealing with social-cultural and geographical aspects related to the production, usage and analysis of geo-information, the GeoCultGIS full-day workshop offers an opportunity for an inclusive and open discussion on the general conceptual, methodological, and empirical approaches for tackling such issues. This workshop will promote and advance the exchange of information and knowledge on the matter through keynote talks, short paper presentations and open discussion rounds.
Accepted contributions will be published in an open-access repository as proceedings including unique DOIs. Furthermore, the workshop’s organizing team is organizing a special issue based on the contributions to the workshop which will appear in Transactions in GIS. More details will appear shortly.
We encourage participants to submit conceptual, methodological, or empirical short papers (up to 3000 words manuscripts) discussing the cultural and geographical aspects of geo-information, in particular, but not limited to, subjects such as:
The papers should be submitted by April 30th, 2019, directly via e-mail, to Dr. Tessio Novack: email@example.com.
Authors are requested to follow the formatting guidelines for short paper submissions on the AGILE 2019 call for papers page and use the Word .doc template or the Word .docx template
The GeoCultGIS 2019 workshop will be organised and co-chaired by:
Any of the organisers will be happy to answer any queries or questions you have regarding the workshop.
