The 15th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT 2022, will be held in Kobe, Japan, 5 to 9 September, 2022. Established in 1993, the Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT) is a biennial international conference series concerned with theoretical aspects of space and spatial information, aimed at advancing geographic information science and its emerging research frontiers.

The conference offers three (refereed) submission tracks with double-blind reviews: vision papers, full papers, and short papers. Embedded in the conference will also be an on-site mentoring program for doctoral students.

Contributions can cover a broad set of conference-relevant themes such as (but not limited to):

  • activity-based models of spatial knowledge
  • cognitive aspects of geographic information
  • cognitive-behavioural geography, naive geography
  • data-driven spatial information theory
  • geo-ethics and geo-privacy
  • events and processes in geographic space and time
  • geographic information visualisation and geovisual analytics
  • knowledge representation for space and time
  • navigation and wayfinding of sentient beings and robots
  • ontology of space and time
  • place
  • quality and interoperability of geographic information
  • social and cultural organisation of space
  • spatial and temporal language
  • spatial aspects of social networks
  • spatial decision support, impact of model design
  • spatial (digital) humanities
  • theory-driven spatial machine learning, artificial intelligence of space
  • theories on volunteered geographic information
  • theory and practice of spatial and temporal reasoning
  • user interfaces, virtual spaces and collaborative spaces
