      November 6-7, 1998

      Scope of the symposium: This 6th symposium aims at bringing together all
      people carrying out research in novel systems based on spatial data and
      knowledge, within the framework of the 7th International Conference on
      Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM). The emphasis will be
      essentially targeted to the development of generic principles and systems
      in computing based on those applications. Cross-fertilizations and
      between several applications can help to develop new computing knowledge.

      Location: Holiday Inn Bethesda (renamed to "Crowne Plaza" soon),
      8120 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, Maryland 20814 USA, Phone: (301) 652-2000;
