GIS and its related phenomena are growing rapidly in this decade, energized
by pervasive cloud and mobile technologies and by competitive advantages.

This workshop will:

•      Explain fundamental spatial concepts.

•      Justify GIS’s importance in the IS discipline.

•      Explain role of geo-spatial analysis and intelligence for business &

•      Provide connections with IS concepts

•      Explore existing research methods, body of published work, theories,
research questions, journal outlets.

•      Provide cutting-edge GIS research through *contributed papers* on
GIS, Locational Analytics, Spatial Reasoning, and Spatial Business

 Since this area is expanding and becoming essential in business and
government, the workshop  can advance research in a new and evolving
sub-field within IS.

The Objectives are (1) Provide a tutorial on spatial concepts, and
locational analytics, (2) Examine and discuss research opportunities and
challenges in Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Analysis, as
related to the field of Information Systems (IS), and (3) Offer a forum for
presentation of contributed research papers on GIS and Spatial Analysis in
the context of IS/IT and organizations.

The morning session focuses on the tutorial and exploration and discussion
of research opportunities in spatial analytics and GIS.

In the afternoon session, the contributed research papers will be presented.

*Potential topics for contributed research papers:*

   - Spatial business intelligence
   - Spatial decision support systems and analytics
   - Spatial knowledge management
   - Spatial data mining and knowledge discovery
   - Web-based GIS concepts and applications
   - Big Data and GIS
