Announcement of annual Symposium Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics
On Thursday, 21 November 2019, the Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics (NCG) organizes its annual NCG Symposium, at the University of Twente – ITC in Enschede. With this symposium, the NCG encourages the exchange of ideas and discussions of scientific research in the fields of Geodesy and Geo-informatics.
The aim is to facilitate the exchange and discussion about research results and activities in the two domains mentioned above. That is why the symposium includes all active research activities in the aformentioned domains. This year, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Monika Sester of the Leibnitz University Hannover, Institute of Cartography and Geoinformatics will deliver the Baarda Lecture.
For researchers and students
While the symposium is free of charge and intended for all researchers and students of Dutch universities, academies and institutes that are active in the field of Geodesy and Geo-Informatics, participants will need to register in time. The symposium is also free of charge for everyone else who is interested, for instance professionals from the commercial and operative area. Interestingly, specific target groups are doctoral students, postdocs and active researchers in the field. Recently graduated MSc students are also welcome to contribute with a presentation. However, the registration is in order of submission, the number of participants is limited. Also, the deadline for registration is 1 November 2019. Alreay, registration is open and you can register by sending your name and organisation/ educational institution to info at ncgeo.nl. Shortly, the full program of the day will be announced on the website of the NCG.

Call for papers
The NCG calls for abstracts of scientific research results to be presented at the NCG Symposium 2019. Abstracts on all topics in the field of Geodesy and Geo-Informatics are welcome. Because they like to stimulate discussions, staff of universities participating in the NCG coordinate sessions on topics like 3D geo-information, point clouds, quality of crowd sources, geo-data science, geo ethics/ critical data studies, indoor geo-information, governance of SDI, geo marketing, environment and geodesy, precision farming, forestry, GNSS and machine learning methods for geo-information science and remote sensing. To accommodate presentations on other topics, additional sessions are possible. After reviewing the submissions, the program committee will select the abstracts for presentation. The deadline for abstract submission is 27 September. Authors will receive a notification by 15 October.
How to submit
For giving a presentation, the organization would like to invite stakeholders to submit the title, author’s name and short summary (about 5 lines) by 27 September by e-mail to info at ncgeo.nl. Then, the program commission will assess the contributions received and upon acceptance, before 15 October, the authors get a notification about the allocated time slot for their presentation. The organization specifically asks for presentations of relevant developments and themes, like: 3D Geo-Information, Monitoring, Point Clouds, Indoor Geo-Information, Governance of SDI, Precision Farming &Forestry, Crowd Sourcing, Quality of Crowd Sourced Data, Geo-Data Science, Geo- Ethics/Critical Data Studies, Geo-Marketing, Environment and Geodesy and GNSS.
