Welcome to Human Mobility, Cognition and GISc’ - a conference hosted by the
University of Copenhagen on November 9, 2015. The present document encloses
the abstracts contributed by five invited speakers and eight submitted as responses to a public call made on June 1st 2015.
In GIS and related sciences (GISc) registration and analysis of human behavior and development of technologies to back us up during our daily activities has a long history behind. Such activities include navigation and wayfinding. At the same time a lot of effort has been spend to investigate and conceptualize the psychological/cognitive and neurophysiological background of our spatial behavior - including our abilities to perceive, memorize, apply and communicate spatial knowledge.

It is the aim of the conference to bring together professionals from cognitive, analytical and geo-technical sciences (including psychologists, anthropologists, geographers, engineers, and computer scientists) for the mutual development of future concepts for experimenting with, recording, analyzing, simulating, visualizing, and communicating data and information regarding humans’ spatial behaviour. The conference is part of an international PhD course financed by a donation of the Faculty of Science of the University of Copenhagen.

The present document constituted by abstracts authored by the conferences’ invited
speakers and members of the scientific board, and submissions made after an
open call. In the call the following (not exclusive) list of topics was suggested:
• Wayfinding and navigation
• Agent based simulation and modelling (ABM)
• Movement analysis
• Emerging and classic technologies for recording movement
• Visualisation of moving objects
• Spatial perception and memory
• Efficient structures for storing movement data
• Legibility of space
• Experimental settings for spatial behaviour (in situ and in silico)
• Spatial and navigational communication

I would like to thank the conferences’ scientific board for taking active part in the preparation of the programme of the conference and for reviewing submitted abstracts.

Board members include:
• Professor Daniel R. Montello from University of California, Santa Barbara
• Professor Robert Weibel from University of Zürich
• Senior Lecturer Patrick Laube from Zürich University of Applied Sciences
• Group leader Tobias Meilinger from The Max-Planck-Institute for Biological
Cybernetics in Tübingen
• Associate Professor Steffan van Der Spek from Technical University of Delft
