Aula der Wissenschaften,) was a welcome environment for presenting some advantages of full-digital publishing to a broad public by the ÖAW-GIScience Institute.
September 5-9 2011, the world cultural heritage city of Salzburg was the
setting for the annual conference of the International Association of
Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG, www.iamg.org). Following the go-green
idea for conferences, peer-reviewed extended abstracts were distributed
to attendees on USB memory sticks; by the end of 2011, proceedings have
been made publicly available via www.cogeo.at as open access, :doi
referenced publications. To get an idea of the physical volume of
scientific material produced for IAMG2011, a very small number (20
pieces) of conference proceedings was printed in traditional fashion:
the immense book comprises about 1550 A4-format pages and has a weight
of more than 3kg.
The associated PDF includes some flashlights of our LNF 2012
presentation in the Austrian Academy of Sciences premises in Vienna (material in German).
