*November 6, 2018, Seattle, Washington, USA*
*In conjunction with the 26th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2018)*
*!!NEWS!!: Submission deadline extended to September the 14th.*
**** Call for Papers ****
The ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Geospatial Humanities is concerned with the use of geographic information systems and other spatial technologies in humanities research. We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners from different sub-fields of computer science and the geographical information sciences, interested in the application of spatial methods and technology to the humanities. Participants will explore and demonstrate the contributions to knowledge that modern GIS technologies can enable within and beyond the digital humanities.
The workshop invites contributions on the following topics, as well as other research related to the Spatial Humanities:
+ Gazetteer development (e.g., models, data conflation, semantic technologies, etc.) + Historical geographical information systems + Spatio-temporal network analysis in the humanities + Text geo-parsing and other NLP techniques for geographical text analysis + Spatial simulation in the humanities (e.g., cellular automata and agent-based models) + Spatial and spatio-temporal analysis of humanities data + Visualization and cartographic representations for humanities data + Handling vague and imprecise historical spatio-temporal data + Applications of the aforementioned techniques
**** Associated Special Issue ****
A special issue of Springer GeoJournal, focused on the Spatial Humanities, will complement the 2018 ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Geospatial Humanities. Authors with best papers will be invited to prepare and submit extended versions to be considered for the special issue. Submissions to the special issue will also be open to all interested authors, regardless of their participations in the workshop.
**** Paper Submission ****
Contributions should be submitted in the form of long papers (i.e., up to 10 pages in PDF, according to the ACM formatting guidelings):
Contributions should report on relatively mature research results, or alternatively on more specliative and early stage research that may nonetheless stimulate discussion at the workshop.
Paper submissions should be made through the EasyChair system:
