Students and researchers will present papers on topics to do with semantics. This encompasses spatial data infrastructures, cognition and computation landscapes and managing volunteered geographic information collection including mobile sensor semantics.


2:00-3:00pm - Workshops: Choose one of the following:

GIS: Online map creation and sharing

We will have a workshop showing how to use ArcGIS online and GIS Cloud and how to use our own data there. Participants will learn how to use these web tools to build maps and share them online.


GeoDroid: Programming mobile apps for Android

We will have an alternate workshop showing the basic steps and tricks for creating and implementing our own mobile applications using the Android platform.


3:30-4:30pm – Paper session


5:00-8:00pm – Scavenger hunt and tour around Lisbon

Participants will be asked to form a number of groups.  Each group will be given a list of points of interest in central Lisbon with questions about each one.  The groups can wander about as the like, but the questions will follow a sensible order and there will be hints about the next stop at each point.  Groups can try to find the answers to the questions at their own pace, and the group with the most correct answers (who also arrives at the final destination for dinner) will receive a prize.

8:00pm – Unofficial Dinner

The final stop in the scavenger hunt will be a restaurant (still to be determined) where we can have a nice dinner.  This dinner is self-pay.  There is no need to have participated in the scavenger hunt to join us for dinner!
