Mark your calendars!

GIScience has become one of the premier events for GIS researchers:

Zurich, Switzerland, September 14-17, 2010

Switzerland will be the host city of the sixth GIScience, continuing a
highly successful series of conferences that commenced in 2000, and
which regularly attracts over 150 international researchers. GIScience
2010 aims to bring together scientists from academia, industry, and
government to discuss the state-of-the-art in geographic information science,
and explore emerging research directions. The conference focuses on
basic research findings across all sectors of the field, and pure
application papers are discouraged. The conference has two (refereed)
submission tracks: full papers and extended abstracts. Pre-conference
workshops and tutorials (Sep. 14) and the main conference (Sep. 15-17)
will take place at the University of Zurich-Irchel campus, featuring
state-of-the-art conference facilities within a park-like setting. The
conference site is located only 20 minutes from both downtown and
Zurich Airport, and is easily accessible through public transport.

The Second Circular, including the call for papers and more detail on the conference structure, accommodation, and registration will be sent out by the end of August, 2009. Note also the conference website, which will be updated on a regular basis: http://www.giscience2010.org.
