The 15th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science.
Call for Papers
On behalf of the AGILE council, we invite you to participate in the next AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science, that will be held in Avignon, France.
Important Dates :
• January 20th, 2012 : Short paper and poster submission
To submit : https://www.softconf.com/c/agile2012/
Potential contributors are invited to submit :
- Short paper submission 2000 to 3000‐words manuscript limited to 6 pages (in pdf format) of original and unpublished research work. High‐quality scientific and strategic (industrial and governmental) submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference. Since the new template is very compact, these 6 pages correspond to 8-10 pages in previous AGILE 2011 or single column common guidelines. A selection of the submitted papers will be published in the Proceedings, under ISBN. The selection process is double blind, so the authors must not insert their name, affiliation or own publications in the submitted papers. Papers must be written in English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.
This year there will be an opportunity to prepare an extended paper for a series of international journals based on a long or short paper. With that aim, a sub-committee of the scientific program committee will make a selection of papers based on their quality, potential and relevance for the respective special issues. The authors will be invited to prepare such an extended paper for one of the below mentioned journals, after the conference. These papers will have to be extended and designed according to the journal requirements (paper length, specific guidelines, journal reviews, possible additional fee). Details on the selection and review process will be provided at a later stage.
- Poster submission 500 to 1000‐words manuscript of original scientific and strategic research work. High‐quality submissions will be accepted for poster presentations at the conference, which will provide the exceptional opportunity to stimulate scientific discussions and exchange novel ideas. Posters proposals must be written in correct English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines. Poster abstracts must be written in English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.
Note: AGILE 2012 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 co-operation in our effort to maintain a fair, blind reviewing process.
Note: The first anonymous version of the full papers must be submitted in PDF. The final version of accepted full papers included in the Springer Special issue must be provided in .DOC or .DOCX formats based on the Springer Word Document Template. A best practice example showing how to format a full paper submission is provided here. A similar process will be applied on short papers selection, in a second stage, after the selection of the full papers.
Note: The Chairmen keep the right to examine the submitted papers to evaluate their relevance to the research domain tackled by the AGILE Conference.
