17th AGILE Conference on Geographic Information Science

Connecting a Digital Europe through Location and Place

3-6 June 2014, Castellón, Spain

On behalf of the AGILE council, we would like to invite you to participate at the 17th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science, scheduled to take place between 3 and 6 June 2014 in Castellón, Spain. This years’ conference will pay special attention to the role Geographic Information Science and Technology can play to connect European universities, research centres, industry, government and citizen in the digital information age.

First Call for Papers

The program will offer pre‐conference workshops, keynote sessions, parallel paper presentation sessions and a poster session to share your ideas, and to explore on‐going research and future developments, including state‐of‐the‐art applications. The conference will also allow you to network with other professionals from academia, industry and government who are interested in promoting GI teaching and research activities at the European level.

Potential contributors to this conference are invited to submit:

Full papers: maximum 6000‐words manuscript of original and unpublished scientific research. High‐quality scientific submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and will be published in the series Springer Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography. We encourage PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers to submit full papers. Papers must be written in correct English according to the Springer formatting guidelines.

Short papers: 2000 to 3000‐words manuscript of original and unpublished research work. High‐quality scientific and strategic (industrial and governmental) submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and will be published online as separate proceedings (with separate ISBN number). Papers must be written in correct English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.

Poster submission: 500 to 1000‐words manuscript of original scientific and strategic research work. High‐quality submissions will be accepted for poster presentations at the conference, which will provide the exceptional opportunity to stimulate scientific discussions and exchange novel ideas. Posters proposals must be written in correct English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.

Note: AGILE 2014 is running a double-blind review process. In preparing your manuscript, do not include any information which could reveal your identity, or that of your co-authors. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author names, email addresses, or affiliation status. In the body of your submission, you should eliminate all direct references to your own previous work. That is, avoid phrases such as "this contribution generalizes our results for XYZ". Also, please do not disproportionately cite your own previous work. In other words, make your submission as anonymous as possible. We need your cooperation in our effort to maintain a fair, double-blind reviewing process.

Authors’ instructions are available on the web site of the conference (http://agile-online.org). All submissions must be sent in electronically via the online conference manager (coming soon).
