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.

Topics

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 for geospatial data
+ Machine Learning for geospatial data
+ Big Data technologies for Earth observation

Submission

Papers of up to 8 pages (in CPS Conference Style) should be electronically submitted through Easy Chair.

Publication

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