Geovisualisation, Society & Learning
July 3 - 6, 2012 | Salzburg, Austria
Audience. 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.
Themes & Application Fields. GI_Forum 2012 offers full-fledged, intertwined tracks on GIScience & Technology and Learning with GI with a focus on geovisualization, 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.
We welcome theoretical, technical and empirical work. 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
- 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.
Submission: Types & Deadlines. GI_Forum 2012 gives authors choices about the type of submission they want to make in order to accommodate a variety of interdisciplinary contributions. Submissions must be in English language according to the formatting guidelines published at the conference website.
