Special Session: Spatial Simulation

Context: from pattern to process
Currently, geoinformatics is undergoing a fundamental shift from handling static spatial data (‘pattern’) to the processing of highly dynamic spatio-temporal data (‘process’). Spatial Simulation is a generative modelling approach that aims at understanding the formation of spatial patterns. It thus complements descriptive (big data) analysis of spatio-temporal patterns.

Scope of the session:
We invite contributions that advance the state-of-art in spatial simulation modelling, including;

  • approaches based on cellular automata, agent-based models, individual-based models, microsimulation, or spatial system dynamics,
  • applications of spatial simulation models in various domains, including ecology, landscape ecology, conservation biology, population dynamics, social network models, urban geography, pedestrian modelling, or transport modelling,
  • hybrid models that integrate multiple modelling methods,
  • participatory spatio-temporal modelling,
  • dynamic geo-visualisation of simulation results,
  • explorative model analysis and validation.

Contributions:
Contributions can either be submitted as full paper, extended abstract or poster. Authors of accepted full papers and Extended Abstracts are invited to present and discuss their papers (15’+5’) in the special session. Authors of accepted posters are invited for a lightning talk (5’). Full papers and extended abstracts will be published in the GI-Forum Journal (Open Access).
