The Geoinformatics Forum (GI_Forum) symposium will be held from July 5-8, 2011 at the University of Salzburg, Austria. The event is organised by the Centre of Geoinformatics in cooperation with the Institute for GIScience at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the German University of Technology. The Forum invites GIS professionals to experience a scientifically challenging programme, attractive events and interactions with a vibrant interdisciplinary GIS community from academia, industry and government to analyse progress and to explore new research directions in GIScience.
Topics range from geospatial data acquisition and GI-techniques, advanced spatial analysis, visualisation and cartography to dynamic modelling and simulation. There will also be a workshop on “Spatial assessment and analysis of vulnerability” and the special symposium “Learning with Geoinformation.” The deadline for online early registration is May 20, 2011. The Forum also invites interested participants to submit extended abstracts for poster presentation until June 6, 2011.
