GISRUK 2000
5th - 7th April 2000, University of York, UK.

                          *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

Conference Announcement

Following the success of earlier conferences in this series, the Steering and 
Local Organising Committees have pleasure in announcing the eighth annual GIS 
Research Conference. 

The Conference has a number of aims: 

  to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK 
  to provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS research 
  to act as an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of research ideas 
  to promote active collaboration amongst UK researchers from diverse parent 
  disciplines 
  to provide a framework in which postgraduate students can see their work in a 
  national context 

The sponsors of this conference include: the AGI, RRL.Net, Taylor & Francis, Ltd.
and GeoInformation International. 

Conference Format

The conference will include invited plenary sessions involving international 
speakers - including Waldo Tobler of UCSB, research papers, panel discussions, 
poster papers, software demonstrations and a publishers' exhibition. 

Topics of Interest

It is intended that the academic focus of the conference will be wide-ranging and 
non-exclusive. The GISRUK2000 steering committee welcomes papers on recent 
research in all aspects of the field of Geographical Information Systems / 
Science, especially

     GIS theory 
     GIS and database issues 
     Spatial analysis 
     Visualisation 
     Multimedia 
     Temporal models and techniques 
     Knowledge based spatial analysis 
     Remote sensing and GIS 
     GIS in Archaeology and Heritage Management
     GIS in Ecology and Wildlife Management
     GIS in Geology and the Earth Sciences
     Applications 


The GISRUK series builds on an interdisciplinary foundation, and regularly draws 
participants from most of the disciplines which make up the field of GIS, 
including Archaeology, Computer Science, Geography, Geology, Surveying, 
Environmental Science, Engineering, Geomatics. 

The conference programme will reflect this diversity. 

Venue

The University of York was founded in 1963 with 200 students in two city-centre 
locations and at Heslington Hall (now the central administrative building). It 
has now expanded to over 7,000 students and has over 30 academic departments and 
associated research centres. From its inception, the University has concentrated 
on strong viable departments and teaching and research of the highest quality. 
In spite of its small size, it is rated as one of the top ten universities in the 
United Kingdom.

The main campus at Heslington is a 200-acre landscaped park, well-known for its 
lake and wildfowl. Here the colleges and academic buildings are on a reasonably 
level site within walking distance of each other.  The campus is close to the 
historic city centre.

The City of York's turbulent history can be traced back nearly 2,000 years. It 
begins in earnest in AD71 when the Romans founded Eboracum which, by the 4th 
century, was the capital of lower Britain. In the 7th century, known as Eoferwic,
York was the chief city of the Anglo-Saxon King Edwin of Northumbria and, two 
centuries later as Jorvik, it became an important trading centre for the Vikings.  
The city was ravaged by William the Conqueror, but by the Middle Ages it had 
again become an important commercial centre.

Today, while trade and industry are still important, it is the preservation of 
its long and varied history which has brought it world fame. For here, visitors 
can not only hear about England's history, they can actually see it and walk in 
it. 

Information for Contributors

Papers reporting original research on any aspect of GIS are welcome. Although 
based in the UK, GISRUK conferences regularly attract participants from Europe 
and elsewhere. 

Researchers wishing to present papers are invited to submit an extended abstract 
of up to 1500 words describing the work, its significance and a short list of 
references. Abstracts will be reviewed by a Programme Committee selected from the 
Steering and the Local Organising Committees. Principal authors should also 
submit a 50 word biography, which should indicate their stage of career. This 
biography will be used initially to ensure a good mix of young and established 
researchers presenting at the conference, but will also be bound with the 
abstracts and given to attendees. Both the extended abstract and biography for 
accepted papers are required in digital form;  Ascii text, Microsoft Word or 
Corel WordPerfect formats are equally acceptable.  These may be submitted by 
Email (prefered) or on a formatted diskette. Any illustrations must be included 
in the document. An example of the form of a typical extended abstract and 
biography may be found on the GISRUK 2000 web pages.

Authors should state clearly if they wish to nominate a mode of presentation. 
Otherwise, if accepted, authors will be invited to present the work as a paper, 
a poster or a demonstration subject at the discretion of the Programme Committee. 
Note that provision will be made for 'short papers' of 10 minutes, in one or more 
conference sessions. 

Authors should bring multiple copies of the full version of their paper (up to 
5000 words) to the conference, for dissemination to participants. 

Authors wishing to have their papers considered for inclusion in 'Innovations in 
GIS 8', to be published by Taylor & Francis, must give a copy of the full version 
of their paper to their session chair at the conference. The paper and all 
diagrams must also be provided on a PC Diskette (MSDOS formatted disk) at this 
time. Only a proportion of papers can be included in the book, and thus a further 
refereeing process will be undertaken at that stage.  There is also an
opportunity for suitable papers to be considered for a special issue of the 
journal Computers, Environment and Urban Systems (CEUS).

If papers of appropriate standard and content are available, there are also 
opportunities for inclusion in a thematic issue of one of a number of respected 
journals.  These papers will be handled as for potential inclusion in 
Innovations in GIS.
