We invite theoretical and empirical contributions exploring geocomputation, geovisualization, navigation and wayfinding, map use, user studies, and methodologies for designing, developing, and evaluating geographic information and tools that leverage geographic data.

Topics include (but are not limited to):
- geovisualization and visual analytics (design, evaluation and/or cognitive issues),
- visualization, cognition, and use of uncertainty in decision making,
- application of geovisualization displays and tools to understanding spatial cognition,
- methods for and application of cognitive theories and methods to understanding issues in geographic research (including fMRI),
- human-geovisualization interaction and usability research,
- cognition of space-time representations,
- wayfinding and navigation,
- cognitive map design research,
- usability of digital geographic displays.
