COSIT,theseriesofConferencesonSpatialInformationTheory,hasbeenaround for greater than ten years. Its hallmarks are a fruitful interdisciplinary discussion among computational and human views on spatio-temporal details and an intensive evaluate approach that selects the simplest papers whereas giving all - thors exact suggestions on the right way to enhance their paintings. a transparent pro?le of the COSIT group has emerged from the sequence of convention court cases, all released as Springer Lecture Notes in machine technological know-how, and from the consistent with- nent site at http://www. cosit. information, containing hyperlinks to the convention sites and complaints, a background and software of the sequence, an effect examine, interviews with individuals, and images.

Au Abstract. This paper describes categories for landscape elements in the language of the Yindjibarndi people, a community of Indigenous Australians.
