Special Issue on "Social Computing for Geographic Information Science"

Paper submission deadline: 31 March 2021.
Papers may be submitted immediately or at any point until 31 March 2021, as papers will be
published on an ongoing basis.

This Special Issue is dedicated to explore current trends and research opportunities 
related to geographic information science through the lens of social computing, 
from a threefold perspective: (1) theoretical, by exploring how to develop 
new conceptual frameworks for effectively fusing geographic and social information 
for representing and understanding geo-social relationships networks; 
(2) computational, by investigating how to innovatively use social computing 
techniques for geographic information science issues, including making spatial 
data more accessible, creating user-friendly environments for interacting with this data, 
analysing and reasoning on big social sensing data; (3) applicative, by understanding
 how the analysis of social geo-located data can be applied to various human 
activity domains, including languages, political elections, emotion recognition, 
disaster management, smart cities, and disease spreads.
We call for original contributions from a wide range of cross-disciplinary and 
collaborative domain knowledge related to geographic information science and 
social computing, such as cognitive science, information science, 
computer science, linguistics, and social science. 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Social media geographic information analytics
- Social sensing
- Retrieving, processing and interpreting social geo-located data 
- Voluntary Geographic Information (VGI) management
- Location-based social networks
- Modeling of spatial-social human interactions
- Collaborative interactions with geographic information
- Sentiment analysis approaches for social geo-located data
- Geographic Human-Computer Interaction
