Call For Papers

ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop
on Data Mining for Geoinformatics (DMG) 2010

in conjunction with

18th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference
on Advances in Geographic Information Systems

November 2, 2010
San Jose, CA, USA


Studying, understanding and protecting the earth and its environment are issues of crucial importance for the sustainment and development of our society. Global climate change, severe weather, and catastrophic natural hazards such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, etc, require new scientific methodologies for their study. Understanding their governing dynamics and striving towards their timely detection, prediction, and prevention can help protect lives and properties, and minimize economic impact. The field of Geoinformatics focuses on the development of novel scientific algorithms and the implementation of computational methods to provide solutions to pressing earth-related problems.

Recent advances in ground, air- and space-borne sensor technologies have provided scientists from different disciplines an unprecedented access to earth-related data. These developments are quickly leading towards a data-rich but information-poor environment. The rate at which geospatial data are being generated clearly exceeds our ability to organize and analyze them to extract patterns critical for understanding in a timely manner a dynamically changing world. These massive amounts of data require the use of an integrated framework based on Geographic information science (GIS) to address a variety of scientific questions, such as identifying strong patterns, clustering similar data points, detecting anomalies, and abstracting relevant information from sequences of satellite imagery.

The scope of this workshop is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the establishment of synergistic activities among scientists working in fields such as geographic information science (GIS), data mining, machine learning, geoinformatics, remote sensing, as well as natural hazards, earth and atmospheric sciences. During this one-day event we aim to bring together these scientific communities, which are overlapping but not always interacting.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Spatial, Temporal and/or Spectral Data Mining
- Spatiotemporal Databases
- Data Warehousing
- Machine Learning
- Digital Image Processing & Analysis
- Remote Sensing
- Geographic Information Systems
- Geospatial Intelligence
- Spatial Analysis
- Sensor Networks
- Natural Hazards
- Climate Change
- Atmospheric Modeling
- Numerical Simulations
- Risk Assessment


Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Preliminary results are welcome. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at

Submission length is limited to 10 pages. 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.


Submission: August 15, 2010
