In 2006, ACM-GIS comes full circle and returns to where it started: Arlington, Virginia. The 2006 International Symposium of ACM GIS will be the fourteenth of a series of symposia/workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in novel systems in which geospatial data and knowledge is central. The symposium has a tradition of fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems. It provides a forum for original research contributions and practical system design, implementation, and applications of spatial database technology and GIS.
