Call for Papers: Workshop on Geocomputational Analysis of Socio-Economic Data

You have published an original research contribution on Geocomputational Analysis of Socio-Economic Data, or have a work-in-progress paper that would fit the topic?
We invite you to contribute to the workshop on Geocomputational Analysis of Socio-Economic Data at the International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems in Hamburg on November 13, 2023! Prof. Dr. Alexander Zipf from HeiGIT and Heidelberg University organizes the workshop together with Prof. Soumya K. Ghosh from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, Postdictoral Scholar Dr. Shreya Ghosh from The Pennsylvania State University, and Dr. Budhendra Bhaduri, Director of the Geospatial Science and Human Security Division from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • AI/ML driven geospatial analysis of socio-economic data
  • Predictive models for socio-economic datasets – spatial regression models, deep learning models etc.
  • Spatial data infrastructure for harvesting, analysing of socio-economic indicators
  • Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) for socio-economic data collection
  • Sustainable socio-economic development, Promoting sustainable socio-economic growth
  • Satellite remote sensing data, night-time light (NTL) data for socio-economic data analysis
  • Data fusion techniques and analytics for prediction and forecasting across space and time
  • Challenges of global change, climate change
  • Analysis of socio-demographic data (income) and integration of contextual datasets (night-time light, transportation, housing conditions, greenhouse gas emissions) which can act as a proxy of socio-economic indicator
  • Real-time analysis of dynamic and distributed socio-economic data
  • Geo-intelligence for sustainable socio-economic development


Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Full papers: Full papers (limited to 10 pages) should present original, unpublished research papers which belong to the scope of the workshop and are not being considered for publication in any other forum.
  • Short papers: Short papers (limited to 4 pages) may focus on a narrowly defined topic, may report on preliminary results (or work-in progress), or may present relevant study results that do not warrant a full paper. The short papers should be original, unpublished, within the scope of the workshop and are not being considered for publication in any other forum.

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author per accepted workshop contribution (full paper, short paper) is required to register for the workshop and the conference, as well as attend the workshop to present the accepted work. Otherwise, the accepted submission will not appear in the ACM Digital Library version of the workshop proceedings.

Manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at ACM Primary Article Template. Please check the ACM SigSpatial 2023 paper formatting guidelines for more information. We look forward to your contributions and particiaptions in our workshop.
