Mai postánkból. Ludo Engelen írja a K.ULeuven-től: "*****Call for papers - International workshop on Place-related Knowledge Acquisition Research (P-KAR)****** (in conjunction with Spatial Cognition 2012) Place has become a hot topic in GIScience: place is important in human cognition and communication, and hence, is a high priority for human‐computer interaction. But place is also a challenging concept to model, reason with, and analyze in information systems, because of its fluency with context shifts, and its underspecification. This workshop invites researchers from computational linguistics, data mining, artificial intelligence, geographic information science, and related disciplines to tackle this challenge. The aim is to bring together researchers with an interest in using the concept of geographic place for building smarter services and integrating heterogeneous data. The workshop will be structured around the following challenge: 'Automatic estimation of the location of things or events based on verbal or graphical descriptions, or photographs, or a combination of them.' Participants will have the opportunity to submit position papers that can propose new approaches to that challenge, investigate the nature of the challenge, or investigate the corresponding research questions. At the workshop, participants will work together in groups on ideas emerging from these position papers. As a possible inspiration source, a dataset of place descriptions collected from volunteers as answers to the question "Where are you?", is available upon request. The dataset is part of a bigger data corpus collected through a game organised from our team at the University of Melbourne. For more information on the challenge and the position papers, and for access to the sample dataset, please visit the workshop's website at www.telluswhere.net/p-kar.
