AutoCarto 2020 Call for Extended Abstracts and Workshops

The Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CaGIS) is pleased to call for submissions of extended abstracts to be included in AutoCarto 2020, May 19-22, 2019 and workshop proposals the day before the conference in the beautiful Esri campus, Redlands, CA. In addition to workshops, keynotes, panels, and research presentations, CaGIS is working to arrange Esri tours and hikes with the local Sierra Club. Cartography and Geographic Information Science (the journal of the Society) plans to publish a special issue (or a special section) after the conference.  Authors who would like to submit a full manuscript to CaGIS can indicate so in the extended abstract. The conference Program Committee will consider all offers of submission and select those abstracts most likely to be accepted. Due dates for the full manuscripts will be announced after the conference.  Student assistantships of $750 are available on a competitive basis. Selected students need to present a poster or a selected extended abstract as well as 20 hours of assistance at the conference. Call for posters will be announced later.

AutoCarto symposia started in 1974 with a long history of bringing academia, industry, and government agencies to share research and explore new ideas in cartography and GIScience. The theme of AutoCarto 2020 is WhereNext. We are not only looking where we are and where to go next, but we challenge the ideas of where and next in terms of meaning, communication, visualization, and reasoning in the new age of automation, robotic revolution, and AI. 

We welcome submissions of extended abstracts for research presentations and workshop proposals with a topical or technical emphasis related to WhereNext. All workshops will take place on May 19. Workshops may be 90 minutes to 6 hours.
