Workshop Description -----
The Computational GeoInformatics workshop is a new workshop within the 2008 International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2008). It aims at bringing together researchers and developers from different disciplines working with geospatial information. The workshop focuses on computational aspects of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), more specifically on the management and processing of 2D & 3D spatial data, including temporal aspects and uncertainty.

Topics of interest include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:
- novel geospatial data processing and management mechanisms
- spatiotemporal data modelling and reasoning
- 3D modelling and GIS
- modelling and analysis of terrains
- modelling uncertainty in geospatial information
- spatial and spatiotemporal statistics
- geospatial and spatiotemporal data mining and outlier detection
- use of computational geometry for GIS problems
- automated mapping and map generalisation
- use of intelligent and dense wireless sensor networks for GIS
- fine-grained, terrestrial monitoring platforms
- geo-visualisation and geo-visual analytics
- visualisation of geospatial uncertainty
- new applications of GIS such as crisis management, environmental monitoring, oceanography, 3D cadastre, traffic management, etc.
