The International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management aims at creating a meeting point of researchers and practitioners that address new challenges in geo-spatial data sensing, observation, representation, processing, visualization, sharing and managing, in all aspects concerning both information communication and technologies (ICT) as well as management information systems and knowledge-based systems. The conference welcomes original papers of either practical or theoretical nature, presenting research or applications, of specialized or interdisciplinary nature, addressing any aspect of geographic information systems and technologies.
I am plesed to announce that the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information/ (IJGI, 2016 impact factor 1.502, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijgi) will be a media partner at the conference GIS Ostrava 2018—GIS for Safety & Security Management, taking place from 22–24 March 2018 at the VSB-Technical University of Ostrava (Czech Rep.). As a side-effect of this beneficial collaboration, a Special Issue with the extended version of selected papers will be published after the conference. Additionally, all accepted papers will be published in printed Conference Proceedings that will be issued after the symposium and submitted to Elsevier and Thomson Reuters for consideration to be indexed in Scopus and ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (Web of Science).
In response to this offer, the deadline for full paper submission has been moved two weeks forward to the 31st of January. To learn more about the topics of interest of the conference and complete your submissions, visit the conference website at http://gis.vsb.cz/gisostrava.
Key speakers: Prof. Piero Boccardo (Politecnico di Torino, IT) and Prof. Michael Leitner (Louisiana State University, USA)Proceedings from previous years:
I look forward to meeting you in Ostrava in March 2018! In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our secretariat at email@example.com.
With best regards,Igor IVAN
International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) are organising the IV Latin American Remote Sensing Week – LARS. That activity will take place for the first time within the framework of the International Air and Space Fair – FIDAE.
GEOBIA in a Changing World
From pixels to ecosystems and global sustainability
Our Planet is dramatically changing… and in response, Humanity is facing global challenges of such magnitude that world-wide cooperation is essential to preserve our shared natural and human resources. To succeed, we need an improved planetary understanding and implementation of strategies at both global and local scales. While, remote sensing technologies bring tremendous capacities with potential to manage the future and understand the past, relevant multi-scale geographic information methods are needed to generate timely knowledge from these BIG data sources.
Key to this success is the emerging geospatial discipline of Geographic Object Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA). Now in its 7th Biennial International Conference, we extend a world-wide invitation to scientists, professionals and users from academia, industry, the public sector and government to share your insight and solutions at GEOBIA 2018 in Montpellier, France. Our goal is to deepen our knowledge, develop new theories, and implement operational strategies to better understand our changing world from pixels, to ecosystems and global sustainability.
Keywords: GEOBIA, geospatial, global change, open-source, multi-scale, semantic and knowledge integration, computer vision, algorithm development, machine learning, ontologies, BIG data
Organized by International Cartographic Association, Bulgarian Cartographic Association and University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, Sofia, Bulgaria.
The event will be held during Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, 2018.
Upon very successful events in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016, 7th edition of the International Conference on Cartography and GIS (ICC&GIS) is organized in Bulgaria.
As a part of the conference several other events will be held during 18-23 June:
28 February 2018 - Early registration
