Redlands, California—November 23, 2009—Recognizing the growing importance of geographic information science (GIScience), ESRI has expanded the GIScience Research Track for the 2010 ESRI International User Conference (ESRI UC) to be held in San Diego, California. Geographic information scientists are invited to submit papers that focus on cutting-edge research in GIScience. Accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the journal Transactions in GIS, to be distributed at the conference July 12–16, 2010.
Says Michael Gould, ESRI’s director of education, Industry Solutions, “Furthering advances in GIScience is the key to fully developing the potential of this discipline. This special track is just one of the ways that ESRI provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among the GIScience community. It is open to all geographic information scientists, whether or not their research utilized ESRI software.”
Abstracts of approximately 500 words must be e-mailed to Dr. John Wilson ( Email Contact), University of Southern California, by December 15, 2009. Include “ESRI GIScience Abstract" and the author's last name in the e-mail's subject line.
The Transactions in GIS editorial team will review the abstracts based on their GIScience content and select nine for development into full papers. Notice of acceptance will be announced by December 22, 2009.
The completed papers must be submitted to Wilson for independent review by February 15, 2010. They should include no more than 6,000 words plus figures, tables, and references. Reviewed papers will be returned to their authors for editing by March 15, 2010, and final manuscripts will be due by April 8, 2010, for inclusion in the special issue of Transactions in GIS.
