  *MapInteract 2013*

    ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Interacting with Maps

November 5, 2013, Orlando, FL, USA
held in conjunction with ACM SIGSPATIAL 2013

*Important Dates*
Aug. 15, 2013        Submission Deadline
Sep. 15, 2013         Notification of Acceptance

*Scope *
Maps are all around us and the visual core of spatial information. We 
use them on the Internet, in mobile devices, navigation systems, 
analysis and planning tools, for information visualization, or gaming. 
Whenever maps are involved, it usually is not about displaying static 
information, but about finding, accessing, adding, or editing 
information. We want to inspect relationships between entities, navigate 
through large result sets, and identify best solutions. Whatever it is, 
we need to express our needs and requirements such that algorithms and 
data can provide the answer. However, working with maps is surprisingly 
awkward. Even simple queries can require a lot of interaction, the 
formulation of complex queries is sometimes not even possible - although 
we know more about the user, the context, and the task than ever before.

With MapInteract 2013 we want to explore the future of maps as fully 
interactive interfaces. We are seeking for contributions addressing 
different facets of interactivity with maps: from interaction design and 
studies to algorithms and data enabling interaction. The application of 
maps is highly diverse and we aim to to provide a forum bringing 
researchers and practitioners of many domains and backgrounds together.

We invite the submission of /research papers/ and /interactive demos/ to 
discuss and experience new map-based interaction techniques and 
modalities, algorithms involved in interaction and visualization, user 
studies, adaptation, research agendas, common challenges.

This workshop is about interaction, and so is the format. We want to 
create a platform for exchanging ideas, discussion, and demonstration 
between researchers and practitioners. To make our workshop an agile 
experience, we are aiming at a mixture of talks and hands-on experience 
with interactive demos.
Are you developing novel interaction designs for specific tasks, users, 
or application areas? Are you designing new algorithms and procedures to 
perform map-based interactions? Are you developing novel interactive 
visualizations to explore new knowledge? Whatever it is you can submit 
and present your work in two ways: paper&talk or paper&demo. We will 
have dedicated sessions for both, allowing theory, experience, and 
communication come together for an inspiring workshop.

Submit your paper or demo to MapInteract 2013 if your research is 
related to interaction and concerned with one or more of the following 
topics (not limited to these):
* Map Interaction Design
* Algorithms for Interactive and Dynamic Maps
* Human-Computer Interaction
* Mobile Maps
* Interactive Maps
* Visual Analytics
* Cognitive Ergonomics
* Map Gestures
* Projected Maps
* Dynamic Maps
* Interacting with Multidimensionality
* Interactive Schematic Maps
* Designing for Map-based Collaboration
* Designing for Situated Activity
* Maps and Augmented Reality
* Designing for Maps on Small, Large, Shared or Ambient Displays
* Distributed Interaction Principles
* Field Research and Design
* Novel Map-based User Interfaces and Interaction Techniques
* Visualization Techniques
* Multi-modal Interfaces
* Multi-user Interaction & Cooperation
* Maps on Shared Devices
* Tangible Interfaces

We invite the submission of two types of contributions:
* Papers of up to 6 pages describing original work or work-in-progress. 
Accepted papers will be presented as regular talks with or without a demo.
* Demos of interactive systems. Demos need a small accompanying paper of 
up to 2 pages. All proposed demos need to be available at submission 
time. We accept everything running: websites, videos, apps. This is 
about ideas and their implementation, we do not expect polished 
products. If you are in doubt just contact us!
All papers (regular and demo papers) should be submitted as PDF file 
formatted in the style of the ACM Proceedings Format 
( and should 
not exceed 6 pages including text, figures and references. To ensure 
high quality, all submitted papers will be carefully peer-reviewed by 3 
committee members. One author of an accepted paper or demo is required 
to register for the workshop and the conference, as well as attend the 
workshop to present the accepted submission.
All papers and demo proposals must be submitted via EasyChair using the 
following URL:
We are looking forward to receive your contribution!
