Call for Submissions

We invite papers on spatial cognition, cognitive and perceptual issues in cartography, visualization design, geovisual analytics, and usability/utility of geographic information systems to be included in a series of sessions at the 2019 American Association of Geographers Annual Meeting in Washington, DC from April 3 – 7.

We invite theoretical and empirical contributions exploring geocomputation, geovisualization, navigation and wayfinding, map use and education, 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 and education
- human-geovisualization interaction and usability research
- cognition of space-time representations
- wayfinding and navigation
- cognitive map design research
- usability of digital geographic displays

In addition to geographers, GIScientists, cartographers, and cognitive or behavioral geographers we are also looking for speakers from a broad range of disciplines, including but not limited to psychology, cognitive science, education, HCI, etc.

To be considered:
(1) Register and submit your abstract online following the AAG Guidelines.
(2) Email your presenter identification number (PIN), paper title, and abstract to Jeff Howarth ( by November 8, 2018.
(3) Please set your email header to “CBD CFP” to be assigned to a proper session.
