COSIT 2017

13th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory
L'Aquila, Italy, September 4-8, 2017

Established in 1993, COSIT (Conference On Spatial Information Theory) is a biennial international conference series concerned with theoretical aspects of space and spatial information. COSIT was started to establish a counterpoint to several concurrent applied GIS conferences at which reports on applications and development in GIS technology were made but often without a contribution to scientific theory and literature. The focus at COSIT from the beginning has been on theories of space and time relevant to the establishment and the advancement of (geo)spatial information science.

Spatial information theory is concerned with all aspects of space and spatial environments as experienced, represented and elaborated by humans, other animals and artificial agents. The scope of the conference includes both the conceptualization of frameworks for specific spatio-temporal domains, as well as the development of general theories of space and time and theories of spatial and temporal information. Papers may address aspects of spatial information from any disciplinary perspective including (but not limited to) the following:

- Cognitive Science, Vision Science, Environmental and Behavioral Psychology
- Geography and Geographic Information Science
- Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
- Engineering, Human Factors and Cognitive Ergonomics
- Cognitive Robotics and Cognitive Informatics
- Mathematics, Logic, Philosophy and Ontology
- Cognitive Anthropology, Psycholinguistics and Linguistics
- Architecture, Planning, and Environmental Design
