TOPIC AND TARGET GROUP
The sixth international Conference On Spatial Information Theory, COSIT '03, is concerned with theoretical aspects of space and spatial information. Of special interest are aspects of "large-scale" space, i.e. spaces too large to be apprehended at once without technological aid. These include spaces of geographic and environmental scales in which humans make decisions and carry out actions. Spatial information theory also deals with the formal and natural description of processes and events in spatial environments, thus providing a foundation for the design and construction of geographic information systems (GIS) and for spatial information systems (SIS) in general.

The following (non-exclusive) topics are indicative of the field of interest:
