Our paper ‘Defensive Wayfinding: Incongruent Information in Route Following’ written by Martin Tomko and me has been accepted for this year’s Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT). The conference will be held on October 12-16 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The Department of Geography, University of Zurich, is offering a new specialized Master’s program in Geographic Information Science (GIScience) as of this fall semester.
A bit of short notice maybe, but more information including how to apply can be found at the program’s website.
Our paper A Mobile Application for a User-generated Collection of Landmarks, written by Marius Wolfensberger and myself, has been accepted for the upcoming conference on Web and Wireless Geographic Information Systems to be held in Grenoble, France, on May 21st and 22nd.
We are currently looking for two new PhD candidates (doctoral researchers) associated with the newly SNF-funded EMOtive project.

Alireza Kashian got a paper accepted at the Joint International Conference on Geospatial Theory, Processing, Modelling and Applications (organized among others by ISPRS) to be held in Toronto, CA, in early October.
The paper is about RoadPlex: A Mobile VGI Game to Collect and Validate Data for POIs (co-authored by Abbas Rajabifard and me).
Landmarks are crucial elements of human understanding of and communication about space. And they pose a major challenge for computational systems.
Stephan Winter and I have written a book — Landmarks – GIScience for Intelligent Services — summarizing research on integrating (references to) landmarks into computational systems from the last decade or so. It covers cognitive, conceptual, computational, and communication aspects and argues why producing and understanding landmarks is a necessity for truly intelligent geospatial systems.
The book is published by Springer.
I sure know what we did last summer…
Our paper Up, Down, Turn Around: Assisted Wayfinding Involving Level Changes, written by Stephany Bigler, Annina Brügger, Fiona Utzinger, and myself has been accepted as full paper for this year’s Spatial Cognition conference to be held in Bremen, Germany, in September.
We got a paper accepted at this year’s GIScience conference in Vienna, Austria.
Our paper Wayfinding Decision Situations: A Conceptual Model and Evaluation presents a model for decision point complexity that accounts for the structure of the intersection, the action to be performed as well as instruction complexity, user capabilities and environmental factors. The paper is written by Ioannis Giannopoulos, Peter Kiefer, Martin Raubal, myself, and Tyler Thrash.
