September 21, 2011
The Association for Computing Machinery Geographic Information Systems (ACM GIS) Conference is the premier annual event of the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL). The conference provides a forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) ranging from applications, user interfaces, and visualization to data storage and query processing and indexing. The two papers, titled "Privacy-Preserving Assessment of Location Data Trustworthiness" (authors: C. Dai, F.Y. Rao, G. Ghinita, E. Bertino) and "Prox-RBAC: A Proximity-based Spatially Aware RBAC" (authors: M.S. Kirkpatrick, M.L. Damiani, E.Bertino), focus on security and privacy in spatially-aware applications and mobile systems.
