Call for Papers, Databases, and Tools

The Brazilian Symposium on Geoinformatics (GEOINFO) is an annual conference for exploring research, development, and innovative applications in geographic information science and related areas. All submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee.

GEOINFO will accept the following submissions:

Short-papers: contributions describing original ongoing research works, consisting of up to 6 pages, in English (preferably), or Portuguese.
Full-papers: contributions describing original recently finished research works, consisting of up to 12 pages, in English.
Databases: contributions describing original databases. It should be submitted as a Short-paper, including a link to a public repository. The paper must not necessarily include scientific questions but a clear description of data and metadata.
Tools: contributions describing original tools. It should be submitted as a Short-paper, including a link to a public repository. The paper must not necessarily include

Papers should be submitted in PDF format, made in accordance with the SBC guidelines (download templates and guidelines here). Templates are available for OpenOffice, MS-Word, or LaTeX, along with instructions for preparing the papers.
