18–22 June 2018 GEOBIA 2018

Montpellier, France

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.

22–27 July 2018 IGRASS 2018

Valencia, Spain

On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to participate, next July 2018 in Valencia, Spain, to the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, IGARSS 2018, the 38th annual symposium of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). The theme for IGARSS 2018 highlights the pressing demands for "Observing, Understanding And Forecasting The Dynamics Of Our Planet". We are looking forward to welcoming you to Valencia, the city of Light and Fire, during IGARSS 2018. IJGI will have a booth No. 33 at the IGARSS conference, hope to see you there.

24–28 July 2018 InterCarto-InterGIS 24

Bonn, Germany

InterCarto-InterGIS 24 is the 2018 event in a conference series that is devoted to Geoinformation and Cartographic Support for Environmental, Economic and Social Aspects of Sustainable Development and Globalization Challenges.

Topics discussed in this conference include Databases, Open Access, Big Data, Complexity Management, Standards, Interoperability, Information for Decision-Making, Ecological and Sustainable Tourism, Urban Ecology and Planning, Remote Sensing Information, Land Cover, Risk Information Management, Analysis and Mitigation.

The Bonn 2018 conference especially focuses on Information Management for Nature Preservation, Biological Diversity, Landscape Protection, Risk and Resilience.

Special interest is devoted to cross-program information coherence as well as synergy aspects on global and regional scale, i.e. the UN international programs (IPBES, SDGs, Agenda 2030, IPCC, ISDR, HABITAT etc.) as well as UN Development Group Strategic Plans (e.g. UN SP on Forests) and the relevant directives of the European Union and other bi-/multi-national treaties.

24–27 September 2018 18th International Scientific and Technical Conference: From Imagery to Digital Reality: ERS & Photogrammetry

Crete, Greece

Conference topics:

Earth Remote Sensing (ERS) — from imagery to analytics

Analytics of ERS data is one of the most demanded services in geoindustry. Huge amounts of data—accumulated by space survey operators by now—are becoming ever more accessible for end consumers.

There is active development of “from raw imagery to spatial information” services. This section is called upon to answer questions about how services based on technologies of receiving and processing ERS data will be developed, how the approach of space imagery operators will change, how convenient the forms of work with space information will be, and how much it will be in demand by the market.

Methods and technologies of spatial data acquisition — from rivalry to synergy

The last years were marked by the use of multi-agent systems as technological platforms of spatial data acquisition. Technological schemes—“space-airborne-UAV” and “scanner-optics-lidar”—have become widely used in the solution of various production tasks when it is necessary to receive information in strictly scheduled terms. Combining and optimizing spatial data acquisition technologies is the main issue of the section.

Photogrammetry — from algorithms to products

Photogrammetry in the world technological trend is the key issue of the section, where development and future of the scientific and technical discipline—known for more than one hundred years—will be discussed. Methods of photogrammetry have provided the world with the products without which it would be impossible to imagine our daily lives: first of all, precise maps. What methods, products, and services will photogrammetry offer tomorrow? Which technologies will be determinant for our industry in the coming years: artificial intellect, machine learning, or cloud technologies?

Innovations in cartography

Difficult tasks face cartography: to meet all the needs in classical products and not be late for innovative challenges. Despite active development of virtual and additional reality technologies, projection of “smart” cities, BIM, and tasks of topographic support of territorial development still face cartography. The main issue of the section is the combination of innovative requests of society and solutions for everyday tasks.

From idea to worldwide recognition – Racurs celebrates twenty-five-year

This year the history of Racurs — the one and only organizer of the conference — will cross the twenty-five-year milestone. At this section we will speak about the history of Racurs and PHOTOMOD, how developers and users gained experience, where the technologies of PHOTOMOD family move. We have something to be proud of.

31 October–2 November 2018 Applied Geography Conference (AGC) 2018

Kent State University, Kent OH , USA

The AGC exists to promote the application of geographic insights and analysis in all areas of society, including (but not limited to) applied climatology, business & economic geography, crime, geographical information science, geomorphology, geospatial analysis, health & medical geography, military geography, remote sensing, policy & planning, resource geography, and urban issues.

5–7 November 2018 The Geospatial Track at the Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Asia Pacific Conference (ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2018)

Wellington, New Zealand

ISCRAM achieves its goals through conferences, research, education programs, and standards activities, and we are delighted to offer a range of tracks for this conference, that cluster around the conference theme of Innovating for Resilience.  Tracks will cover all of the major topics in information systems for crisis response and management, ranging from the technical to the social and including data, applications, social media and alerting and monitoring systems.  We are interested in a range of applications within the disaster field, including all stages of the disaster lifecycle, risk and healthcare within natural and socio-economic environments.
