      Special Issue of
      International Journal of Systems Research and Information Science

      Spatial Data Analysis and Modelling

      Guest Editors

      Dr. T.D. Gedeon (tom@...)
      Department of Information Engineering
      School of Computer Science and Engineering

      Dr. P.M. Wong (pm.wong@...)

      In much science and engineering practice today, there is an increasing
      demand for techniques which are capable of spatial data analysis. Spatial
      data analysis is the analysis and modelling of data distributed in space,
      and has various applications in fields including: geographical information
      systems (GIS) such as forest, rainfall, environmental modelling and
      assessment; geoscience such as hydrology and petroleum reservoir modelling;
      ecology, epidemiology, and many other disciplines which need to characterise
      and predict data distributed in space.

      Researchers in all areas of spatial data analysis are invited to contribute
      to this special issue which will attempt to cover much of the current
      state-of-the-art in spatial data analysis. Topics will be a good mix of
      the following areas:

      1) Artificial intelligence (e.g. neural nets, fuzzy logic, expert systems)
      2) Geostatistical modelling (e.g. inverse distance, splines, lattice & point
      data analyses)
      3) Data integration and visualisation (software-focussed)
      4) Case histories

      Acceptance will be based on the overall significance and appropriateness of
      the reported material, as well as the quality of presentation. Use of very
      specialised technical jargons is not recommended in order to suit the wide
      readership of the journal. The focus should be on the usefulness, practical
      aspects of the technique, and how the theory is adapted for field applications.
      All material should be original and are not submitted or published elsewhere
      while under editorial consideration.

      Paper submission

      Three copies of all manuscripts are required on paper. An abstract of no more
      than 150 words should be provided. The length of the text should not exceed
      5,000 words. All papers will be internationally reviewed by two experts in
      the area. The journal notes for contributors and paper submission format can be
      found at:

      http://www.petrol.unsw.edu.au/staff/srisformat.html

      The deadline for paper submission is 1 July 1997. Notification of acceptance
      will be sent out around 1 October 1997.

      Please notify your intention to submit to the guest editors before 1 May 1997.
      All papers and future correspondence should be sent to:
