The International Workshop on Advanced Research in Geographic Information
Systems IGIS'94 provides a forum to present the state-of-the-art in this
rapidly developing area. The growing importance of geographic information
systems for applications in business and government has fed on rapid
technical progress with respect to hardware, software, algorithms, and
data structures.

Scope
-----

The ESPRIT project 6881 brings together experts in data bases, algorithms
and data structures, from Athens, Hagen, Paris, Rome, Vienna and Zurich to
work on ``Algorithms, Models, User, and Service Interfaces for Geography''.
In order to support broader exchanges of research and development results,
IGIS'94 will be opened to a small number of participants from outside this
consortium and so IGIS'94 will provide a unique occasion to join researchers
and developers of geographic information systems. There will also be the
opportunity to demonstrate commercial or non-commercial geographic infor-
mation systems.  Interested participants will be selected on the basis of
their present and future professional involvement in GIS.

Submissions
-----------

Applicants should send a brief biography describing relevant experience,
a current or planned project that involves GIS, and perhaps a brief abstract
of a possible talk by September 15, 1993 to:

                       IGIS'94
                       Computer Science Department
                       ETH Zentrum
                       CH-8092 Zurich, Switzerland

Conference Site
---------------

The workshop will talk place at the Centro Stefano Franscini on Monte
Verita, the ``Mountain of Truth'' in Ascona, Switzerland. This beautiful,
newly renovated conference center provides an informal atmosphere for
individual collaboration. It is located on the shore of the Lago Maggiore
and is easily reachable by plane or train.

Proceedings
-----------
Extended abstracts of the presentations will be available at the conference.
Proceedings of this workshop will be published after the conference.

Organizing Committee
--------------------

Juerg Nievergelt, Thomas Roos, Hans-Joerg Schek, and Peter Widmayer.

Dates
-----

              Deadline for submission:        September 15, 1993
              Notification of acceptance:     October 31, 1993
              Workshop:                       February 28 -- March 4, 1994
