15th Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Conference Abstract Deadline Now July 1st

First off, a great thank you to all who submitted abstracts for the 15th Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Conference (GSDI 15) before the previous June 1st deadline.  With more than 110 abstracts received, additional space has been reserved at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. Plus, due to popular request of authors continuing to submit Abstracts and Posters, the Conference Organizing Committee is pleased to announce an extension to the Abstract due date to 1 July.

The new due dates for GSDI 15 are:

• Extended abstract: 1 July 2016
• Full (refereed) paper: 15 July 2016
• Non-refereed paper: 31 July 2016
• Poster submissions: 31 July 2016
• Workshop proposals: 1 July 2016
• Early bird registration (for reduced attendance fee): 15 September 2016

When scheduling GSDI 15, we built in flexibility with respect to the submission deadlines, depending partly upon capacity options at the conference venue.  We sincerely hope that these current changes to the original schedule will be welcomed by the geospatial community worldwide.

The theme of GSDI 15, which will take place from 29 November to 2 December 2016, is “Spatial Enablement in the Smart Homeland.” Advanced information and communications technologies, applications for spatial data, and open data policies are key to helping people prepare for extreme events and to foster opportunities for public and private sectors to create innovative products and services for Smart City and Smart Territory implementation.

Abstracts may be submitted online in one of the following tracks:

Track 1 = SDI for the Smart Homeland & Disaster Management, Reduction and Mitigation
Track 2 = SDI Governance and Policy Developments & Geo Data for Decision Making
Track 3 = Earth Observation, Sensors, Geo Technology & SDI Innovation
Track 4 = Geo Education and Cartography & Regional and Global SDI Initiatives
Track 5 = Land Information and Management Systems
