               Workshop on Spatial Knowledge Acquisition
                   with Limited Information Displays

                       @ Spatial Cognition 2012
                   Bavaria, Germany, 31. August 2012


We invite you to join SKALID 2012 - The international workshop on 
Spatial Knowledge Acquisition with Limited Information Displays, held in 
conjunction with Spatial Cognition 2012 at Abbey Kloster Seeon in 
Bavaria, Germany, at August 31, 2012.

The workshop focuses on the challenges and opportunities of geographic 
spatial knowledge acquisition from visual, haptic, and multimodal maps 
with limited information displays. As we envisage it here, limited 
information displays are characterized by the restriction in size or 
resolution of the interface. One example are maps displayed on small 
screens of smartphones or navigation systems. Another example are haptic 
maps for orientation providing a coarse overview of environmental 
relations such as for complex railway stations or street networks.

The goal of this workshop is to investigate commonalities and 
differences of visual, haptic, and multimodal maps and the related 
spatial knowledge acquisition processes by approaching the topic from 
different backgrounds such as geography, spatial cognition, cartography, 
computer science, mobility research, human-computer interaction and 

This workshop seeks for contributions including (but not limited to) the 
following topics:
- Navigation support with haptic, vibro-tactile, visual and any other 
limited information displays
- Hybrid-Cartography: bridging survey representations and route 
representations, or physical, static maps and virtual, interactive maps
- Psychological, ethnographic or sociological findings about the usage 
of limited information interfaces
- Measures, psychological studies and empirical results of the usability 
of limited information interfaces
- Novel information visualization algorithms for geographic information 
with limited information interfaces
- Formal or psychophysical models of spatial complexity measures
