Call for Papers
             Special Issue of Algorithmica:

     -- Algorithms for Geographical Information --

Submission deadline: December 21, 1998
Expected publication: Early 2000
Guest editor: Marc van Kreveld

Algorithmica is planning a special issue on algorithms for
geographical information. Papers describing original research are
solicited that deal with algorithmic issues for handling geographic
information.  Survey and state-of-the-art papers will also be
in that case, please contact the guest editor as soon as possible with
the intended contents to avoid conflicts.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, algorithmic issues

* map overlay
* map generalization
* label placement
* terrain models
* spatial interpolation
* geostatistics
* spatio-temporal data
* error handling and uncertainty
* feature extraction
* visualization, animation, and simulation
* network analysis
* mathematical modeling of geographic problems
* optimization, parallel, distributed, geometric, graph, and
  evolutionary algorithms applied to geographical data

Papers that extend well-known algorithms in nontrivial ways in order to
be relevant to geographic data handling are also solicited. Every paper
should explicitly address its relevance to geographical data handling.
Theoretical and/or experimental analysis is encouraged.

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard submission
guidelines of Algorithmica. All submissions will be subject to the
regular refereeing process of the journal. Submit five copies of a
full paper to the guest editor (address below) by December 21, 1998.
