More on this journal...

Located at the confluence of related and rapidly advancing domains, IJSTMIS aims to provide a forum for disseminating original research and experiences in the expanding uses of computer science for spatial, temporal and multimedia studies as well as newly-emerging topics. Thereby, its objective is to be an effective channel of communication between academic and industrial researchers in these domains in which advances in both worlds are very closely coupled.


IJSTMIS has a dual emphasis and serves as a common forum for frontline industrial developments as well as pioneering academic research. It provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the field of spatial, temporal and multimedia information systems, as well as emerging new topics, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJSTMIS publishes high quality original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in new generations of information systems will occasionally be published.
