Conference news and updates

In light of on-going developments with COVID-19 and the unpredictable implications on both health and travel restrictions, ACM SIGSPATIAL and the Organizing Committee have decided to convert SIGSPATIAL 2020 to a fully virtual conference. The virtual conference will be run from 8:00am to 6:00pm (PST) 2020-11-04T16:00:00.0Z2020-11-05T02:00:00.0Z each day, November 3-6, 2020.

All the talks will be made available to registered participants via Zoom webinars, with live Q&A with presenters. Slack channels will be used for asynchronous discussions. Pre-recorded talk videos will also be available at YouTube and BiliBili before the conference. We will also provide Gather, a virtual space that enables attendees to interact more effectively online, combining video-calling with a 2D map, and letting attendees walk around and talk to the other people right next to them.

You will need to register for the conference, set up Zoom , and register for Slack with the same registering email before joining the conference.

Please read virtual conference guidelines, and use the program page to join the conference.

We look forward to your participation and meeting you virtually at ACM SIGSPATIAL 2020!

The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2020 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2020), the twenty eighth edition, will be held in Seattle, Washington, USA, November 3-6, 2020. It began as a series of symposia and workshops starting in 1993 with, the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geo- spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems. The conference provides a forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of geospatial data ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to data storage and query processing and indexing. The conference is the premier annual event of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL).
