SDH'96 ----------------- CALL FOR PAPERS

The International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling (SDH)
is the premier research forum for Geographical Information 
Systems. It commenced in 1984, in Zuerich, and has been held 
every two years since. The meetings have been held in Seattle, 
Sydney, Zuerich, Charleston and Edinburgh. It is the primary 
event organised by the International Geographical Union's 
Commission on Geographical Information Systems.

The 1996 meeting will be held in Delft, the Netherlands, 
August 12-16,  hosted by the Faculty of Geodetic Engineering 
of the Delft University of Technology. 

Following the Edinburgh approach the SDH programme committee 
will be selecting papers based on the complete paper, not 
abstracts, which will be fully refereed by at least three 
international recognised specialists. The programme committee
is chaired by Professor Martien Molenaar (Wageningen Agriculture 
University, Centre for Geo-Information Processing))

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of how well they reflect
the cutting edge of scientific achievment in the field. 

There is no particular conference theme, however the keynote 
spreakers will address the impact of fundamental GIS reseach. 
To see the range of topics likely to be coverd , consult previous 
SDH proceedings papers. Some of the topics are: data integration, 
databases, algorithms, spatial decision support systems, spatial 
analysis, digital terrain modelling, visualization and multi-
media, spatio-temporal GIS, fuzzy processing, uncertainty and 
error analysis.

The proceedings will be published in book format by Taylor & 
Francis. They also published the 1994 porceedings.
