GI_Forum provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds, informing the GeoInformation Society, contributing to a more just, ethical and sustainable society.
GI_Forum 2020: connecting spatially
GeoInformatics is established today as effective methodology, based on georeferenced technologies and has become the standard feature in many application domains. How did this dynamic development towards a key discipline of digitalization happen, not only in the economic sector but in all spheres of our daily lives?
Coordinates serve as key connection among all location-based data and information. Integration by means of ‘spatial joins’ results in new information, thus, providing additional knowledge as basis of decision-making processes for science, economy and our entire society.
Networking on every level
GI_Forum’s characteristic mix of scientific symposium and international networking platform, paired with a German language sister conference, AGIT (www.agit.at) and its EXPO (http://www.gi-forum.org/expo), makes the GI_Week in Salzburg. The GI_Week is a unique opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues and experts in the field; to discuss the latest research in and outside many different sessions; gain hands-on experience in numerous workshops; or start a new project over a cup of coffee or during a walk on the premises of the University of Salzburg’s Faculty of Natural Sciences.
We welcome contributions in the entire GIS realm, bearing in mind different perspectives from various professions and disciplines. In 2020, our focus is on the following themes:
- Climate Change
- Education for a digital world; geomedia and remembrance; learning with geomedia; Spatial Citizenship
- Spatial Simulation
