\noindent
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.

\vspace*{0.5cm}
{\large\bf 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 information systems.
Interested participants will be selected on the basis
of their present and future professional involvement in GIS.

{\large\bf Conference Site}

The workshop will talk place at the
Centro Stefano Franscini on Monte Verit\`{a}, 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.

{\large\bf Proceedings}

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