The Asian Network of G.I.S.-based Historical Studies (ANGIS) in collaboration with The Project on GIS-based Global History from Asian Perspectives, the University of the Philippines-Department of Geography and the Philippine Geographical Society, Inc. (PGS) is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 5th ANGIS Conference (ANGIS 2016) to be held on December 1-3, 2016 at the University of Philippines, Diliman Campus, Quezon City.

Focusing on Asian history and aiming to promote multidisciplinary approaches in exploring historical processes, the upcoming ANGIS Conference will serve as a venue for popularizing innovative methods such as digital visualization, analysis of data using time information systems, and the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in analyzing and interpreting historical data that are being undertaken by both academics and practitioners in the fields of history, geography, heritage studies, spatial analysis and modelling, visualization, and G.I.S. These efforts hope to contribute in forming new insights and perspectives that would challenge conventional historical researches through collaboration among member institutions and partners.

This year, the 5th ANGIS Conference expects to gather local and international participants in a forum that underscores the recent developments in Historical GIS with the theme “State of the Art in Historical G.I.S. In Asia.” As such, ANGIS 2016 will present papers on diverse themes and studies from the humanities, history, geography, spatial science, and other fields with particular interest in Asian history and feature the application of GIS or other mapping methods.
