The book Cognitive and Linguistic Aspects of Geographic Space – New Perspectives in Geographic Information Research, edited by Martin Raubal, David Mark, and Andrew Frank, has now been published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography series.
I have a chapter in this book, entitled Prospects and Challenges of Landmarks in Navigation Services.
Our paper The Impact of Classification Approaches on the Detection of Hierarchies in Place Descriptions has been accepted for this year’s AGILE conference in Leuven, Belgium (14-17/5). The paper has been authored by Daniela Richter, myself, and Stephan Winter.
Two of our papers in the context of the Talking About Place project have been accepted at the First International Workshop on Crowdsourced and Volunteered Geographic Information to be held at the 20th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Science. The papers are:
- Spatial Interpretations of Preposition “at”, authored by Maria Vasardani, Stephan Winter, myself, Lesley Stirling and Daniela Richter
- How People Describe their Place: Identifying Predominant Types of Place Descriptions, authored by Daniela Richter, myself, Stephan Winter and Lesley Stirling
Our JOSIS paper has now appeared in Number 4 of the journal.
The paper Zooming in – Zooming out: Hierarchies in Place Descriptions written by Daniela Richter, Maria Vasardani, Lesley Stirling, myself, and Stephan Winter has been accepted as a full paper for the 9th Symposium on Location Based Services in Munich, Germany, later this year (16-18 October).
The paper Semantic Trajectory Compression – Representing Urban Movement in a Nutshell written by myself, Falko Schmid and Patrick Laube has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Spatial Information Science.
The paper Linking Cognitive and Computational Salience in Route Information written by Makoto Takemiya, myself and Toru Ishikawa has been accepted as a full paper at the Spatial Cognition 2012 conference.
I have received a School of Engineering Global Engagement Strategic Mobility Grant for a project on Assisting People Under Stress: Using Mobile Devices in Evacuation, which I will work on jointly with Toru Ishikawa from the University of Tokyo, Japan.
Our paper Supporting extraction of knowledge about environmental objects and events from geosensor data authored by Susanne Bleisch, Matt Duckham, Allison Kealy, myself, Stephan Winter, Stuart Kininmonth, Alexander Klippel, Patrick Laube, Jarod Lyon, David Medyckyj-Scott, and Tim Wark has been accepted for this year’s Autocarto conference. This paper will set the scene for our ARC Discovery Project “From environmental monitoring to management”.
We are organizing an International Workshop on Place-Related Knowledge Acquisition Research at this year’s Spatial Cognition conference in Kloster Seeon, Germany.
The organizing committee is Stephan Winter, William Mackaness, Krzysztof Janowicz, myself, and Maria Vasardani. Check the website for more details!
