ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Geospatial Humanities
Co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2017<http://sigspatial2017.sigspatial.org> in Redondo Beach, California, USA

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

Contributions should be submitted in the form of long papers (i.e., up to 8 pages in PDF, according to the ACM formating guidelines<http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template>). They should report on relatively mature research results, or alternatively on more speculative and early stage research that may nonetheless stimulate discussion at the workshop.

Authors with best papers will be invited to prepare and submit extended versions to be considered, after a new peer review, for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science<http://explore.tandfonline.com/pages/cfp/tgis-spatial-computing-3q2017?utm_source=CPB&utm_medium=cms&utm_campaign=JMG01510> focused on Spatial Computing for the Digital Humanities.

Important Dates

The Workshop on Geospatial Humanities will be held in conjunction with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2017 in Redondo Beach, California, USA.

  *   Paper submissions: 9th September, 2017
  *   Decisions to authors: 23rd September, 2017
  *   Camera ready versions: 7th October, 2017
