Dear ESIP members,

I would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the session on Geospatial and Spatiotemporal Ontology and Semantics at the next year Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers (April 10-14 2018, New Orleans).  The session next year will be a part of the Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Symposium.  We are interested in submissions describing both practical and theoretical advances in geospatial ontologies.  Please find the session details and the flier below.

Session Title: Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning Symposium: Geospatial and Spatiotemporal Ontology and Semantics

Sponsoring AAG Specialty Groups:

Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Specialty Group, Geographic Information Science and Systems

Session Organizer:
Alex Sorokine (Oak Ridge National Laboratory) (SorokinA at ornl.gov) corresponding

Session Co-organizers:
Chen-Chieh Feng (National University of Singapore) (geofcc at nus.edu.sg)
Dalia Varanka (USGS) (dvaranka at usgs.gov) 
Jeon-Young Kang (SUNY at Buffalo) (jeonyoun at buffalo.edu)

Abstract Deadline: Same as AAG Annual Meeting abstract submission deadline (October 25th 2017)

Call for Papers:

Capturing and representing geospatial and spatiotemporal dimensions of geographic knowledge is a great challenge from both theoretical and applied perspectives. Latest advances in knowledge representation and ontology engineering have spurred a number of traditional and novel geoprocessing applications such as intelligent search and geographic information retrieval, image understanding, integration of disparate and multi-provenance spatial and spatiotemporal data, knowledge discovery from Big Data, visual representation of geographic categories, information extraction from unstructured sources, and many others.

Encouraged by well-received special sessions on ontology and semantics for several years now, we are again soliciting presentations on both theoretical and applied aspects of geospatial and spatiotemporal ontologies for a series of special sessions at the 2018 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting. We invite presentations focusing on one or more of the following (or other related) areas of ontology research:

	•  Spatial and spatiotemporal knowledge modeling, analysis, formalization, and validation (thesauri, vocabularies and ontologies)

	•  Semantic interoperability across domains, cultures, ethnicities, languages and time, spatiotemporal models and reasoning

	•  Semantic annotation methods, provenance, and standards for spatial knowledge representation and processing (e.g. XML, RDF, RDFS, OWL)

	•  Semantic extensions to spatial data infrastructures for the IoT, sensor networks, VGI, and other application areas

To present a paper or to participate in the session as a discussant, submit your abstract through AAG web site and email your PIN to Alex Sorokine (SorokinA at ornl.gov). Please follow standard AAG abstract submission procedure and guidelines. If you have any questions please forward them to one of the organizers.
