GI_Forum 2016
open : spatial : interfaces


July 5- 8, 2016 | Salzburg, Austria

GI_Forum 2016 provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds in an ongoing effort to support the creation of an informed GeoInformation Society. Bearing in mind different perspectives from a variety of professions, presentations as well as workshops and exhibitions will concentrate on innovations in education, science and technologies. The spatial sciences today contribute significantly to a more just, ethical and sustainable society. Prominent keynote speakers will highlight new developments, offer insights into trends and visions, and at the same time be individually accessible for our Young Researchers.
