Welcome to Web & Wireless GIS 2011

The continuing advances in the development of Wireless and Internet technologies generate ever increasing interest in the diffusion, usage, and processing of geo-referenced data of all types - geomedia. Spatially aware wireless and Internet devices also offer new ways of accessing and analyzing geo-spatial information in both real-world and virtual spaces. Consequently, new challenges and opportunities have been provided that expands the traditional GIS research scope into the realm of Intelligent Media – including geomedia with context-aware behaviours for self-adaptive use and delivery. Our common aim is research-based innovation that increases the ease of creating, delivering and using geomedia across different platforms and application domains that continue to have dramatic effect on society.


The 2011 Symposium, hosted by Kyoto University GCOE Program, is intended to provide an up-to-date review of advances in recent development of Web and Wireless Geographical Information Systems (W2GIS). W2GIS is a series of successful events alternating locations between EaSt Asia and Europe, with the most recent event held in Maynooth, Ireland. The 10th Symposium is returning to Kyoto, where the W2GIS series was first launched in 2001.

Please also consider attending the Augmented Human International Conference 2011, which is held a few days later in Tokyo, on March 12/13/14.

We extended the deadline for paper submission. The deadline is October 15, 2010, 23:59 (PST).
