After two years of running the conference online, we are glad we could hold ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2022 in-person this year In-person interaction promotes a sense of community that otherwise would not be possible. SIGSPATIAL academics, students, and industry practitioners can attend the technical talks in-person, meet in the hallway for further discussions, and boost their professional network over lunch. We cannot wait to bring the community together in Seattle this year.

The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2022 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2022), the thirtieth edition, will be held in Seattle, USA, in November 2022. The conference began as a series of symposia and workshops starting in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geospatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems. The conference provides a forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of geospatial data ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to data storage and query processing and indexing. The conference is the premier annual event of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). Researchers, students, and practitioners are invited to submit their contributions to ACM SIGSPATIAL 2022.
