The First International Conference on GeoSpatial Semantics GeoS 2005 will be held in Mexico City, November 29-30, 2005 at the Centro de Investigación en Computación. This conference provides an opportunity for prominent specialists, researchers, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to share their latest researches in GeoSpatial Semantics. GeoS 2005 aims at providing a timely forum for the exchange of state-of-the-art research results in the areas of modeling and processing of geospatial semantics. Geospatial semantics play an important role for next-generation spatial databases and geographic information systems, as well as specialized geospatial web services. This conference will bring together researchers whose expertise will address such issues as:

  • Theories for geospatial semantic information
  • Formal representations for geospatial data
  • Models and languages for geoontologies
  • Alignment and integration of geoontologies
  • Integration of semantics into spatial query processing
  • Similarity comparisons of spatial datasets
  • Ontology-based spatial information retrieval
  • Ontology-driven GIS
  • Geospatial Semantic Web
  • Multicultural aspects of spatial knowledge
