GI_Forum 2013

Creating the GISociety

Salzburg July 2 – 5 2013

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.

Themes & Application Fields: 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. We welcome theoretical technical and empirical work. Topics within the special focus include but are not limited to:
• Spatial Data Infrastructures
• GIScience & Target Group Specific Design
• Mobility and Safety
• Monitoring and Modelling of Global Change
• Spatial Information & Society
• Critical GIS / Cartography
• Education for Spatial Citizenship
• Spatial Thinking in Education
• Outreach Initiatives

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 visualization and visual analytics 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.


We will accept online submissions only starting from December 1st 2012 at www.gi-forum.org to February 1 2013.
