Call for Papers

Aim and Scope

High performance computing and distributed systems have become prominent elements in the landscape of computing and information technologies. High performance and distributed GIS (HPDGIS) have emerged as a growing area of theoretical and applied research. This growth is driven by geospatial problems in numerous fields that are increasingly computationally intensive. Efficient handling of massive spatial databases, shared and role-based access to distributed data, and high end computing services are fundamental to the near-real-time response times required for many GIS and associated decision support applications. The initial feasibility and tremendous potential of HPDGIS have recently been demonstrated by exploiting rapidly developing cyberinfrastructure capabilities. It is now important to bring together researchers and practitioners to map out fundamental research areas centered on HPDGIS and its tight connections to advances in high performance computing, distributed systems, and associated GIS and spatial analysis applications. The objective of this international workshop is to provide an overarching forum in which participants will discuss the state-of-the-art, share the newest research and development activities, and establish future directions for research in HPDGIS.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following HPDGIS themes:
* Cloud computing for GIS and spatial analysis
* Computational intensity of GIS and spatial analysis
* Data-intensive GIS and spatial analysis
* Geospatial problem solving environments
* High performance geocomputation
* Novel applications
* Parallel computing (e.g., GPU and multi-core) algorithms for GIS and spatial analysis
* Performance evaluation
* Service-oriented GIS
* Spatial middleware
* Spatial cyberinfrastructure
* System architecture and design

The workshop organizers seek the following three types of submissions related to HPDGIS:

* Full research papers - up to 8 pages
* Vision papers and short technical papers - up to 4 pages
* Demo papers - up to 2 pages

Authors are invited to submit full, original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at: Papers must be submitted electronically, via a submission website on or before the submission deadline. All accepted papers will be included in the ACM digital library.
