Call for Papers
On behalf of the AGILE Council, we invite you to participate at the 20th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science, scheduled to take place in Wageningen, the Netherlands, 9-12 May 2017.
The program will offer parallel paper presentation sessions, keynote sessions, poster sessions and pre-conference workshops to share your ideas, explore on-going research, future developments, including state-of-the-art applications, and to network with the professionals from academia, industry, and government who are interested in promoting GI teaching and research activities among GI laboratories at the European level.
Potential contributors are invited to submit:
Full-paper submission (maximum 4000 to 6000-word manuscript) of original and unpublished fundamental scientific research. High-quality scientific submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Geoinformation and Cartography. We especially encourage PhD students to submit full papers. Papers must be written in English according to the Springer formatting guidelines.
Full papers must be prepared using either the Springer Word Document Template or the Springer Latex Document Template (contributed books). More general information for your camera-ready manuscript preparation can be found in the Manuscript Guidelines and Key Style Points and on the website of Springer.
SPECIAL NOTE: in the papers only the 'Harvard system' citing style should be used, e.g. (Miller 1995). The citing style with reference numbers in square brackets will not be accepted (see example here).
Short paper submission (2000 to 3000-word manuscript) of original and unpublished research work. High-quality scientific and strategic (industrial and governmental) submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and published in the AGILE proceedings volume (with ISSN). Papers must be written in English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines. You must make your submission anonymous as stated in the note above for long papers using the format provided in a Word .doc template (nonXML) or a Word .docx template(XML)
Poster submission (500 to 1000-word manuscript) of original scientific and strategic research work. High-quality submissions will be accepted for poster presentations at the conference and provide the exceptional opportunity to stimulate scientific discussions and exchange novel ideas. Papers must be written in English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines. You must make also your poster submission anonymous as stated in the note above for long papers.
Note: AGILE’ 2017 is running a blind review process. In preparing your manuscript, do not include any information, which could reveal your identity, or that of your co-authors. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author names, email addresses, or affiliation status. In the body of your submission, you should eliminate all direct references to your own previous work. That is, avoid phrases such as "this contribution generalizes our results for XYZ". Also, please do not disproportionately cite your own previous work. In other words, make your submission as anonymous as possible. We need your cooperation in our effort to maintain a fair, blind reviewing process.
All submissions must be sent in electronically via the online conference manager available here.
