Call For Papers

The 9-th International Symposium IF&IGIS'19 will take place at St. Petersburg, Russia, from 22 to 24 May 2019. The goal of the IF&IGIS’19 symposium is to discuss new approaches to solving major pressing problems in such fields as artificial intelligence and intelligent geoinformation systems (IGIS). We would like to bring together leading world experts in these fields to exchange cutting-edge research ideas and experiences, to discuss perspectives on the fast-paced development of information theory, methods and models, to demonstrate of the latest achievements in IGIS and to discover new ways of collaboration. Symposium topics will focus on fundamentals, models, technologies, services of IGIS in the maritime research field such as underwater acoustics, radio-location, navigation, marine energy, logistics, environmental management, sea food, safety of maritime navigation and other. Special focus of the symposium will be the discussion of perspectives for development and implementation of drone-type units into various fields of human activities (drones, UAVs, UUVs, autonomous cars and other). The symposium provides an unique opportunity for networking and first-hand exposure to the latest developments on these research topics. Graduate students are particularly welcome to participate in the symposium.


Symposium Topics:

  • Big data and cloud computing of IGIS;

  • Spatial data infrastructure for IGIS;

  • Artificial intelligence for GIS;

  • IGIS algorithms and computational issues;

  • Ontologies for IGIS and their applications;

  • IGIS and simulation systems;

  • Mobile and distributed IGIS;

  • The theory and practice of acoustics field modeling in the sea on IGIS base;

  • The theory and practice of radar field modeling over the sea surface on IGIS base;

  • Ports, maritime transportation and logistics;

  • Marine energy and natural resources, environmental management;

  • Maritime safety;

  • Sea-Land Interface and IGIS;

  • Sea food supply and sustainability;

  • Digital humanities and IGIS.

 






Symposium’s official language is English

Two ways of participation in the symposium are possible:

  • Full Papers: scientific papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the scientific committee
    (up to 14 pages).
    All accepted papers will be published in the series Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Geoinformation & Cartography (LNG&C) after the symposium (indexed in Scopus);

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