The GI Zeitgeist 2012 is a young researchers forum on Geographic Information Science to be held in Muenster, on the 16th and 17th of March 2012, will be a conference for young researchers worldwide to get together and present their work in the field of Geographic Information Science.
It will be a forum for discussing diverse disciplines such as computer science, geography, cognitive science, mathematics, environmental science and artificial intelligence working on related topics to interact and find possibilities for collaboration. The event is organized by the students of the International Research Training Group on Semantic Integration of Geospatial Information. We particularly invite master students, PhD students and post-docs, to present their research on innovative concepts, methods and tools for geospatial information modeling and integration. GI Zeitgeist will provide the participants a platform for discussion and exchange related to their latest research activities and give them the opportunity to get feedback on their work in an interdisciplinary and international atmosphere.
The topics addressed by GI Zeitgeist – Young researchers forum on Geographic information science include but are not limited to:
Analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data
Uncertainty and error propagation in geospatial information
Development of open standards and services
Aggregation and generalization of sensor data
Service orchestration and geoprocessing workflows
Wayfinding and navigation
Location-based services and ubiquitous computing
Human-computer interaction for geospatial information
Spatial data infrastructures
Semantic integration of geospatial information
