Geoinformatics - Benefits for environment and society

March 31 - April 2, 2009
Osnabrück, Germany



This event provides an opportunity for GI researchers and industry to meet and exchange the latest in GI research topics, ideas, new research areas and applications.

The main theme of GEOINFORMATIK 2009 is "Benefits of GI for environment and society".

Application areas include but are not limited to disaster and risk management, mobile applications, ubiquitous geo-computing, navigation and location based services. High quality submissions over a wide array of topics in GI science are welcomed.


GEOINFORMATIK 2009 aims at gathering researchers from academia and industry to meet and discuss the achievements of past years and set the interoperability research agenda. In addition the conference aims to expose the state of the art Geoinformatics. Participants of GEOINFORMATIK 2009 will be part of an international audience of interdisciplinary researchers and industry leaders that shape the future of GI science.


GEOINFORMATIK 2009 offers an English and a German track. Abstract submissions (approx. 2 pages) are welcomed and are expected to cover established research results as well as visionary and innovative preliminary research findings, ideas, and/or results.
