The 6th edition of the International Workshop on Geospatial Humanities will be held in conjunction with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2022 in Seattle, WA, USA.
The 6th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Geospatial Humanities is concerned with the use of geographic information systems and other spatial technologies in humanities research. We aim to bring together researchers and practitioners from computer science, geographical information sciences, and the humanities who are interested in novel combinations of spatial methods and technologies with humanistic documents. Our goal is to select papers that foster discussion on how to generate new knowledge in scientific and humanistic disciplines. Participants will demonstrate their contributions and explore how modern GIS and other technologies can inform and be transformed by the humanities.
The workshop invites contributions on the following topics, as well as other research related to the Spatial Humanities:
Contributions should be submitted in the form of long papers (i.e., up to 10 pages in PDF), reporting on relatively mature research results, or alternatively in the form of short papers (i.e., up to 4 pages in PDF), reporting on more speculative and early stage research that may nonetheless stimulate discussion at the workshop. Papers should be prepared according to the ACM formatting guidelines.
Paper submissions should be made through the EasyChair system:
All submissions will be reviewed by three members of the programme committee and accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
One author per accepted contribution will be required to register for the workshop and the ACM SIGSPATIAL conference, as well as attend the workshop to present the work. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the ACM Digital Library version of the workshop proceedings.
