The 6th International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing

From our today's mailbox:
The 2nd International Workshop on High Performance Geo-computation and
Spatial Information Grid (HPG’07)

Urumchi, Xinjiang, China, August 16-18, 2007
to be held in conjunction with the
The 6th International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing (GCC 2007)
1. Call for Papers
In recent years, the use of computation-intensive techniques for spatial data processing and analysis has grown into an important scientific field. High Performance Geo-computation is the application of computational science to Earth sciences. It applies computational resources to various types of Earth science data, information, and models for solving Earth science problems. It develops discipline-specific theories, algorithms, architectures, systems, supporting tools, and infrastructure within the overall context of computational science. The areas of application for Geo-Computation include, but are not limited to, spatial data analysis, dynamic modeling, simulation, space-time dynamics and visualization, virtual reality, and applications employing non-conventional data clustering and analysis techniques.
As one of the hottest topics in High Performance Geo-computation, Spatial Information Grid (SIG) applies grid techniques to Earth sciences and spatial information processing, and tries to provide a powerful and useful infrastructure for Earth scientists, researchers and application users. This workshop focuses on most of the topics in High Performance Geo-computation, especially in Spatial Information Grid and its applications.
The 1st HPG was successfully held in Changsha, China in 2006. The 2nd International Workshop on High Performance Geo-computation and Spatial Information Grid (HPG’07) will continuously provide a forum for examining the state of the art of High Performance Geo-computation and especially the new development of Spatial Information Grid. It also provides a venue for scientists to network with their peers working in similar fields.
2. Topics:
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
l Spatial information grid theories and technologies
l Cooperative computing of spatial information
l Intelligent data processing and decision making
l Spatial data mining and analysis
l Knowledge discovery in physical and human geography
l High performance spatial data processing
l Algorithms on spatial data processing
l Parallel and distributed GIS
l Online Spatial Decision Support System
l Integration of Earth observation technologies and GIS
l Technologies and standards for Interoperability in GIS and Geographic data interchange
l GroupWare and GIS Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW)
l Applications of High Performance Geo-computation and Spatial Information Grid
3. Submission Requirements
Papers submitted to the workshop should not have been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Submitted papers must be written in English, and the length of the papers should be no more than 10 pages in the standard IEEE single column format. (Formatting instructions available on:
ftp://pubftp.computer.org/press/outgoing/proceedings/Instruct6x9.pdf). Please email your manuscripts in PDF to huangzc@tsinghua.edu.cn with the email subject as “HPG’07 paper submission”. Submission of a paper will be considered an agreement that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for GCC2007 and attend the workshop to present the work.
4. Publication of Papers
All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings together with other GCC2007 workshops published by IEEE Computer Society (pending).
