7th International Workshop on Information Fusion and Geographic Information Systems: Deep Virtualization for Mobile GIS  (IF&GIS’ 2015)

May 18 – 20, Grenoble, France


The 7th International Workshop on Information Fusion and Geographic Information Systems (IF&GIS' 2015) is a be-annual event in the development of theories, models and advanced applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). It continues a series of successful workshops held since 2003 in St. Petersburg, 2011 in Brest, France, and 2013 in St. Petersburg. It has been continuously organized by the OOGIS research laboratory of St Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation and the French Naval Academy Research Institute. The (IF&GIS' 2015) will move to Grenoble in France with a specific focus on deep virtualization for mobile GIS. It will be organized in co-location with well-known W2GIS International Symposium. The Event will be held in the campus of University Pierre Mendes.

The proposed scientific domains as far as they address GIS fundamentals (to the left) and their application to a wide range of activities (to the right) include but are not limited to:

GIS Fundamental Issues


·         Data modeling, analysis, integration and fusion in GIS

·         Artificial Intelligence and GIS.

·         Knowledge-based GIS

·         GIS architectures and GIS interfaces 

·         GIS algorithms and computational issues

·         Spatial ontologies in GIS

·         Spatial and temporal GIS

·         GIS and real-time monitoring systems.

·         Positioning and analyzing moving information

·         Underwater acoustics and GIS

·         GIS and simulation systems

·         Mobile GIS

·         Data Security and GIS

·         Sensor-based GIS

·         Spatial data quality

·         Cyber GIS

·         Open source GIS

  ·         Data reliability and quality assurance for open data;

  ·         Crowd-sourcing for widely useable information infrastructures

  ·         Digital Humanities

  ·         Study of the History Using Digital Technology




·        Reviewed Papers: scientific papers which undergo a two-step peer review (up to 10 pages). All reviewed papers, accepted for the Workshop, will be published in the series Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Geoinformation & Cartography (LNG&C) after the workshop;

·        Short Papers and Poster Presentations: practical experience reviews, project reports: decision on acceptance is made by the Scientific Organizing Committee (up to 5 pages).

·        All papers will be available in CD-version at the time of the workshop.

The reviewing procedure is an important tool in enhancing the paper quality of the (IF&GIS' 2015) Workshop.  Papers will not only be evaluated on scientific quality but also with focus on practical relevance and “visionary approaches”. The group of reviewing experts comprises of researchers, practitioners and business experts.

Important Deadlines:

·         Abstract Submission deadline is extended up to …. November 15, 2014.

·         Full paper submission: ………  November 28, 2014

·         Notification of acceptance: ….. December 23, 2014

·         Final papers due: ……………. January 15, 2015
