|                  | THEME:
|  WORKSHOP CHAIR  |
|                  | GIS'94 will serve as a forum for disseminating research
|   T. Ozsoyoglu   | and experience in the rapidly advancing area of geographic
| Case Western Res.| information systems.  The workshop will bring together
|                  | leading researchers and developers and will strive toward
|ADVISORY COM.CHAIR| setting future research directions in this area.
|                  | Since the workshop will be held in conjunction with CIKM,
|     H. Samet     | participants will be able to maximize their interchange
|Univ. of Maryland | of experiences and knowledge among researchers and
|                  | practioners across the entire field of knowledge and
|PROGRAM CO-CHAIRS | information management.
