*In conjunction with the 25th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on
Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2017)*


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* focused

*UPDATE : To accommodate requests**, the submission deadline has been
extended to September the 13th, 2017.*

**** 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

**** Paper Submission ****

Contributions should be submitted in the form of long papers (i.e., up to 8
pages in PDF, according to the ACM formating 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:
