The GI_Forum communicates innovative research and learning in Geographic Information Science with focus on hardware, software, orgware and brainware for the GISociety, and their inter-relationships. Keynotes by Sarah Elwood, Josef Strobl, Geoff Zeiss and Francis Harvey support the general topic.
The interdisciplinary GI_Forum attracts an international GIScience audience with the goal of promoting interest in translating theory, methods and techniques into a broad range of GI application domains. Young researchers are especially invited to contribute and discuss their research. Together with recognized scientists they will find a vibrant community from academia, business, and education ready to embrace new ideas and explore new research directions.
