Registrations to our Paris workshop is now open (register until June 19th)

Our next workshop, in collaboration with ICA commission on GeoVisualization on Persistent Problems in Geovisualization, is fast approaching. The program is now clear and can be seen here: — and you can register (free!) here:

Note that there’s limited space, so if you intend to come, don’t wait too long to register.

We are looking forward for a set of stimulating discussions with our colleagues across the entire spectrum of geographic information science.

Call for participation: Persistent problems in geographic visualization, ICC2011 Workshop on July 2nd 2011, Paris

This may turn into a very rewarding discussion. We are involved in organizing. Consider attending, especially if you are going to the ICC meeting in Paris anyway:

First call for participation:
“Persistent problems in geographic visualization”
ICC2011 Workshop on July 2nd 2011, Paris

Organized by ICA commission on GeoVisualization
in collaboration with
ISPRS WG II/6 Geographical Visualization and Virtual Reality

Synopsis: In this one-day workshop, we seek to identify and
communicate about persisting research challenges in geographic
visualization and geo-visual analytics amongst peers. Participants are
expected to present work in progress towards solving a problem, or a
design issue (rather than reporting results) and contribute to the
discussion that follows. The objective is to determine ongoing
research challenges and discuss progress towards addressing these in a
forum that will provide instant feedback from peers, and through which
collaborators for future work can be identified.

Participation: Please formulate a brief ‘problem statement’,
identifying the persistent problem and your work towards or ideas on
addressing it. This should be no longer than 1-page and should
describe a discussion item or an issue on which you need feedback from
your peers. Topics should be in your area of expertise, which you can
present with sufficient background information. Submit the document by
April 30th, 2011 at the latest. Text should be submitted in an email
attachment in PDF format at gennady.andrienko at
with a cc to arzu.coltekin at and subject line should
include “Paris ICA2011 workshop”

Important dates:

* April 30th 2011: Submission of the statement of discussion item
* May 23rd 2011: Notification of acceptance & announcement of the final program
* July 2nd 2011: Workshop

The venue: Paris (University of geography), details to be provided

Further details to be published at and and announced in the
second call.

Submit now: Conference on Spatial Thinking and GIScience in Tokyo

The international conference “Spatial Thinking and Geographic Information Sciences” will take place at the University of Tokyo from the 14th through the 16th September, 2011 with a strong Geovisualization track.

Submission deadline is fast approaching: please submit by January 15th 2011 (600-1000 word for extended abstracts, no longer than 8000 words for full papers).

Note that a special issue in Environment and Planning B  is planned based on selected submissions and the conference does NOT charge a registration fee.
