The recent advances on the developments of Wireless and Internet technologies have generated increasing interest in the diffusion and processing of geo-referenced data. Wireless and Internet devices also offer new ways of accessing and analyzing geo-spatial information. Consequently, new challenges and opportunities have been provided to the GIS research community.
This symposium is intended to provide an up-to-date review of advances in recent development of Web and Wireless Geographical Information Systems (W2GIS). This symposium will be the 6th in a series of successful events beginning with Kyoto 2001, and alternating locations between East Asia and Europe, with the most recent event held in Lausanne 2005. We invite submissions that address both theoretical and technical issues of W2GIS. Reports on implementations are particularly welcome.
Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Each paper must be written in English, should be limited to 6000 words, and submitted through this site in PDF file. Each paper must include a short abstract and a list of keywords indicating subject classification. The full names and addresses of the authors should be printed only on the title page. The author who is the contact person should be identified as such. Acceptance of a paper means an obligation for at least one of the authors to attend the conference and present the paper. Authors of best/some selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for inclusion in World Wide Web Journal or International Journal of Web Emerging Technology.
