Call for Papers

AAG 2010 Organized Session: *Open Source Tools & Standards in GISc Research
and Education*

Sponsored by the *Cyberinfrastructure*, *Spatial Analysis and Modeling*,
and *Geographic Information Science and Systems* Specialty Groups

Seamless access to and the fusion of disparate geographic information
sources, geographic and scientific visualizations, and geocomputations have
been common challenges in scientific research across disciplines. To cope
with these challenges in GISc research and education, open source platforms
and tools from research communities (e.g., GRASS, Kepler, GeoTools, uDig,
PostGIS, pySAL, OpenGeoDa, R-Geo, to name a few) and open GIS standards
(e.g., OGC WMS, WFS, WCS, GML, KML standards, etc.) are gaining more
attention in building a scientific research infrastructure and introducing
more effective teaching tools. This session invites papers on
state-of-the-art applications of open source tools & standards in GISc
research, and in particular, welcomes papers on best practices in GISc
education. Potential topics for this session include, but are not limited

* State of the art developments/applications of open source tools &
standards in GISc research and education
* Case studies of open source tools & standards implementations: geographic
information sharing, energy, resource management, climate change, etc.
* Case studies on the use of open source tools & standards in GISc education

To present a paper in the session:
1. Register and submit your abstract online (
2. Email your presenter identification number (PIN), paper title, and
abstract to s.jang75 at csuohio.edu andluc.anselin at asu.edu by *October 26, 2009
* (note the AAG abstract deadline is October 28, 2009)
