New GIScience track at the 2010 ESRI User Conference

The Call for Papers has gone out for the new GIScience Research track at the 2010 ESRI International User Conference. “Papers in this special track must focus on cutting-edge research in GIScience. Full papers will be included in a special issue of Transactions in GIS to be distributed at the 2010 Conference. Abstracts (500 words) must be submitted to Dr. John Wilson, University of Southern California, by 15th December, 2009.”

Once the abstracts are in, 9 papers will be selected, and the authors will be notified by December 22nd. If your abstract is selected, a full paper (upt to 6000 words) will be due in February 2010. There’s a lot of good research in GIScience out there, and this would be a good opportunity for getting an academic publication out of the work you’re presenting at the UC.
