1st International Workshop on Context-Awareness
in Geographic Information Services
23 September 2014, Vienna, Austria
in conjunction with GIScience 2014
Recent years have seen an increasing interest in using geographic information
services (such as Location-Based Services (LBS), geographic information retrieval
and recommender systems) to assist in our daily behavior and decision-making.
Context-awareness plays a key role in these systems. This workshop will focus on
how context can be modeled and used in geographic information services.
The goal is to provide an opportunity for different lines of research within
Geographic Information Science dealing with context information and
context-awareness in information services and systems to meet and discuss.
We aim to gather researchers to discuss the state of the art in this field, as well as
to identify and formulate key research questions for the future development of the field.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:
* What is context? Can a generally-agreed definition of context be found?
* What kind of information falls within or outside the concept of “context
information”? To which degree and how can the spatial dimension be considered
as a context dimension?
* In which ways can context be modelled and used in geographic information services?
* What are the benefits of including context information in geographic information
* How should context affect the way geographic information is presented?
We invite full papers, work in progress, and position papers. Papers must be written
in English according to Springer LNCS formatting guidelines and should not exceed
12 pages (for full papers) or 6 pages (for work in progress and position papers).
Papers must be sent as PDF to Each paper will be
reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.
All accepted papers will be included in the GIScience electronic conference proceedings,
as well as published online. Accepted authors to the workshop will be also encouraged
to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Journal of Location
Based Services, for which there would be an open call and separate review process.
