International Workshop on

Integrated Spatial Databases: Digital Images and GIS

June 14 - 15, 1999

Portland, Maine, USA


Announcement and Call for Papers


This intensive workshop is sponsored by the Information and Data
Management Program of the Directorate for Computer and Information
Sciences of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Its scope is to
bring together specialists from a  variety of overlapping but not
always interacting scientific communities.

Original, quality contributions are solicited on issues related (but
not limited) to the following list of topics:

   * Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Databases
   * Database-Driven Information Extraction from Digital Imagery
   * Queries and Content-Based Information Retrieval Methods
   * Automated Extraction of GIS Objects from Digital Imagery
   * Change Detection and Representation
   * Uncertainty Estimation and Modelling in GIS
   * Spatio-Temporal Reasoning
   * Scale in GIS and Digital Image Processing
   * Very Large Spatial and Image Databases
   * Multimedia in Integrated GIS
   * Digital Libraries
   * Multiple Representations

This is a fully refereed workshop. The proceedings will be published by
Springer Verlag as a "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" volume.  To
ensure the constructive interaction between participants and the high
quality level of the workshop, the number of participants will be
limited. For more details on submission procedures, the conference
and registration information, please refer to the workshop web page at
