Conference Participation

ACM SIGSPATIAL 2021 will be held as two integrated events, a Beijing event and a virtual event, with several synchronized joint sessions. The main conference track will feature more than 40 full paper presentations, and more than 50 presentations in the poster/demo sessions. It also features two keynote presentations, and 7 GIS Cup presentations. There are also 13 workshops running virtually in parallel with their own schedules on the first day. The Student Research Competition will also be held on the first day. Authors will present at both events except joint sessions. Now you have the option to join the conference virtually by attending either the Beijing event (Beijing timezone) or the virtual event (Seattle timezone).

The main conference Beijing event will run from 8:30am (8:15am for the first day) to the evening, November 3-5, Beijing time. The Beijing event is now virtual with Zoom.

The virtual main conference will run from 8:30am to 14:30pm, November 2-5 (US Seattle time or PST), and in the evening the day before from 17:30pm (or 19:30pm on Thursday) with synchronized sessions with the Beijing event. So please don’t miss the evening sessions (starting from November 2, PST), including keynote talks, poster/demo sessions, and the awards and statistics session.
