Details: 

The Eye on Earth Summit will enable global leaders, innovators and decision-makers to focus on an issue critical to the wise decision-making upon which our planet’s future depends: how to ensure effective access to the world's expanding pool of environmental and societal data by all of those who need it.

Facilitated by the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) and hosted by Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD) in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Eye on Earth Summit will strengthen existing efforts and inspire a search for unified, global solutions to the issues that preclude access to data.

Africa Geospatial Forum

Start:

End: 
Thursday, 2011-09-08
Details: 

From the year 2006, Map Africa conference has evolved tremendously with time, encompassing and deliberating on various application areas and emerging geospatial technologies serving the same. Map Africa 2010 is a remarkable milestone that we achieved through the journey of Map Africa series of conferences.


In order to maintain our pace with the changing world and be a part of the transforming mapping industry, we are glad to rebrand the conference as Africa Geospatial Forum and take it to new destination i.e ‘Kenya’. Kenya, being classified as a developing and an emerging African nation with rich diversity is an appropriate venue to host the Forum. 


Africa Geospatial Forum shall have impressive technical programme with a renowned array of speakers from across the continent who will share their unique perspective and insights into the African Geospatial industry with little focus on the issue of vision 2030. The conference shall offer an unparalleled balance of substantive information with ample time for networking and socialising. The forum will be built upon the past experiences with the same objective of propagating and promoting the significant usage of Geospatial Technologies as a tool serving varied domains. Through the voices of key major users, decision makers, technology innovators, and industry leaders the conference will examine the programmes, systems, and initiatives that are transforming the continent with key focus on sectors like infrastructure & utilities, Earth Observation System, emerging trends, social development etc.

2nd International Conference on Space Technology – Athens, Greece

Start: 
Thursday, 2011-09-15
End: 
Saturday, 2011-09-17
Details: 

After the success of the first International Conference on Space Technology, which also resulted in a special issue on Space Technology of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, the second event is going to happen almost two years later. The proliferation of micro-satellites has made space affordable and accessible to many people. Space technology, therefore, spans a broad area of research and development, from electronic components for satellites to intelligent systems for on-board data analysis. Most of the satellites face the Earth rather than the outer space. From home electricity meter readings to disaster monitoring, surveillance and crop forecast, satellites play a very important role now in our daily lives. It has also become increasingly evident that a lot has to be gained by considering the whole pipeline of sensors, data collection, data processing, conclusions drawing, actions taken, rather than try to solve individual problems in isolation. This series of conferences is designed to bring together people who work on different aspects of space technology research, in hope that the interactions along this chain of activity will be facilitated and enhanced. 
We particularly encourage the participation of industry, as this event aspires to serve also as a forum where new products are shown and new alliances made. Two page abstracts and industry demonstrations are invited.

GIS Development is pleased to announce the fourth Geospatial World Forum on 23 – 27 April 2012 at RAI Convention Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Geospatial World Forum is a forum for the various stakeholders of the global geospatial community, offering seminars, workshops and panel discussions covering a broad range of topics from technology to policy to user oriented themes at global level. It is an opportunity for geospatial industry, users, academia, entrepreneurs and government leaders to meet, invest, influence and shape the business, technological and policy landscapes of today and tomorrow. Geospatial World aims to bring together about 2500 participants representing different stakeholder communities under one roof to exchange ideas and experiences involving innovative uses of geospatial information and technology in addressing global to local issues.

The theme of the fourth Geospatial World Forum is "Geospatial Industry and World Economy." The event is aimed at promoting and projecting the utility and relevance of the geospatial industry and connecting the industry with major economy-driving industries including energy, mining, infrastructure and agriculture, but in the context of issues such as environmental management, climate change, health, education, and social development.
