CALL FOR PAPERS

Geographical information science (GIS) research is entering the spatio-temporal big data era, which means that conventional GIS needs to be transformed into an analytic GIS to support complicated model analysis. W.K. Clifford;s Geometric algebra (GA), a multidimensional unified and coordinate independent theory tool, which provides a unified modeling and analyzing framework for expression and analysis of GIS data as well asupgrading calculus, geometry and signal processing methods to reduce the computing complexity, and provides useful methods for the integration of GIS data models and geographic analyzing models. Developments of such tools bring challenging applications, not only can spatio-temporal unified expressing frameworks of geometric objects be built, but existing algorithms and models can be effectively embedded.

This conference will focuses on the GA-based multidimensional data management and analysis, computation technologies, reformulation of analysis models (e.g. ODE, PDE, etc) and software development. The conference aims to bring together leading scientists to discuss the frontier in both GIS and GA communities all over the world. There will also be offered a tour of the Key Laboratory for Virtual Geographic Environment, Ministry of Education for the demonstration of current development of the GA-based multidimensional GIS. The tour includes the hardware system, software demonstrations and application demonstrations.

About Nanjing:

  • Lies on the south bank of the Yangtze River, Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province, is one of the most delightful of Chinese cities. About 1 hour railway away from Shanghai, Nanjing is known as the capital city of six dynasties in China’s history, with a brilliant cultural heritage.
  • Like most major cities in China, modern Nanjing has experienced rapid development, with great dramatic changes over the last two decades. Modern highways, railways and international airport connect the city with most major cities throughout the country and world, and it becomes a sparkling metropolis akin to Shanghai and Beijing with skyscrapers, luxury hotels, fashion shopping malls, supermarkets and colorful nightlife throughout the city. Transport in the city is very convenient with the new metro service in addition to taxis, public buses, tourist special lines and other means of transport. Modern amenities in luxury hotels will make your trip comfortable and dazzling shopping malls and department stores will present you a rich and unforgettable shopping experience. Nanjing is also the home to numerous colleges and universities and a large foreign population. The city is become an international metropolis with new faces every day.
