Workshop description

Geoinformatics is a relatively new field concerned with manipulation, modeling, and visualization of the geospatial data. The aim of this workshop is to facilitate discussion of the latest achievements in Geoinformatics as well as applications of geospatial technologies and methods in various fields, such as Geosciences, Environmental sciences, Archeology etc. The workshop particularly promotes collaboration between computer scientists and geoscientists to address scientific and practical challenges in this field. The workshop welcomes submissions of original, high-quality papers reporting on experiments, models or systems that have been or are being implemented. We encourage participation of the young scientists and PhD students.


Specific topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

+ Acquisition of geospatial data
+ Spatial analysis
+ Simulation, prediction, forecasting
+ Location-based services
+ Satellite image analysis
+ Change detection and monitoring
+ High Performance Computing of geospatial data

Paper Submission

We invite submissions in the form of:

+ research papers,
+ extended abstracts (400 words)

Papers of up to 8 pages (in IEEE Conference Style) should be electronically submitted through EasyChair.

Research papers must contain original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere. Authors who want to present work in progress or discuss new aspects or a survey of their older research results at the workshop are welcome to submit an extended abstract (up to 4 pages). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics


Extended/revised versions of the best papers presented at the workshop will be included in the SYNASC post-proceedings published by IEEE Conference Publishing Services. Other publishing opportunities in journals will be announced later.
