Call For Papers

A Geospatial Information System (GIS) describes any information system that collects, integrates, stores, edits, analyzes, shares, and displays geographic information. GIS systems are fundamental to today's information networks and inherently encompass techniques that transform "raw bits and bytes" into "actionable, fused information", also termed InfoFusion. GIS applications incorporate tools that allow users to create interactive queries (user-created searches), analyze spatial information, edit data, maps, and present the results of all these operations. In the commercial sector, GIS systems are used in cartography, remote sensing, land surveying, utility management, geographical strategic natural resource planning, photogrammetric science, geography, urban planning, emergency management, navigation, and localized search engines. Today, Defense & Security applications, such as Unmanned Ariel Systems and Airport Security Systems, are aggressively transforming from basic sensor collection systems that "take pictures" to fully-capable GIS systems that incorporate multi-sensor collections, perform advanced processing and correlations in real-time, initiate sensor cross-cueing, and allow multiple users to rapid retrieve and disseminate information. GIS is critical to defense and security providers in order to enable satisfying emerging demands and rapid access to information for situational awareness and forensic back-tracking missions.

This conference provides a central collaboration point for industry and academic InfoFusion leaders of GIS systems and technologies to share their advancements, learnings, and new solutions. The emphasis for this conference is on expanding the awareness of advanced architectures and enabling technologies that address emerging and adaptive security threats. Technical and scientific papers related to advancements in Architectures for GIS Collection Sensors, Data Processing Algorithms and Techniques, Information Dissemination, Serving, Search, and Query Methodologies, and Information Visualization Solutions that push beyond the scope of the state-of-the-art in industry are solicited.

Topics include:

1) Architectures for Geospatial Collection Sensors
Sought papers will be limited to those discussing sensor architectures, with an emphasis on papers that discuss the methods and approaches where multiple sensors are used together to characterize a scene or event with higher fidelity than with the individual sensor. Papers regarding only specific sensor design and performance are encouraged to seek submissions into other DSS conferences.
