Salzburg, Austria: Organisers of GI_Forum 2012 announced the ‘final call for papers’. The deadline for paper submission is February 1, 2012, and the event is scheduled to be help during July 3-6, 2012, in Salzburg, Austria. It is being organised by the Centre for Geoinformatics – Z_GIS, University of Salzburg and the Institute for GIScience, Austrian Academy of Sciences.
The interdisciplinary GI_Forum focuses on an international audience, communicating in English, and sharing an 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 established scientists they will find a vibrant community from academia, business, and education to analyse progress and to explore new research directions.
GI_Forum 2012 offers full-fledged, intertwined tracks on GIScience & Technology and Learning with GI with a focus on geovisualisation, society and learning, and their inter-relationships. Keynotes by Sara Fabrikant, Muki Hakley, Alan MacEachran and Georg Gartner support the 2012 GI Forum special focus. Topics within the special focus include, but are not limited to:
– Advanced visualization and cartography,
– Visual analytics,
– Spatial information & society,
– Critical GIS / cartography,
– Education for Spatial Citizenship,
– Spatial thinking in education, and
– Spatial Data Infrastructures for education.
The GI_Forum further solicits contributions on emerging topics and research outcomes related to GIScience and GI-based education. Geospatial data acquisition, advanced spatial analysis and knowledge extraction, distributed and mobile services, SDI, global change & vulnerability, dynamic modelling and simulation, learning environments for secondary / postsecondary education, and research into learning outcomes, comprise by no means an exhaustive list of conference topics.
