Who we are

GI_Forum provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds, informing the GeoInformation Society, contributing to a more just, ethical and sustainable society.

connecting spatially

GeoInformatics is established today as effective methodology, based on georeferenced technologies and has become the standard feature in many application domains. How did this dynamic development towards a key discipline of digitalization happen, not only in the economic sector but in all spheres of our daily lives?

Coordinates serve as key connection among all location-based data and information. Integration by means of ‘spatial joins’ results in new information, thus, providing additional knowledge as basis of decision-making processes for science, economy and our entire society.

Networking on every level

GI_Forum’s characteristic mix of scientific symposium and international networking platform, paired with a German language sister conference, AGIT and its EXPO, makes for an interesting exchange among colleagues. The GI_Week in Salzburg is a unique opportunity to meet experts in the field; to discuss the latest research in and outside many different sessions; and to gain hands-on experience in numerous workshops.

The Call for Papers is open from October 1, 2019 until February 1, 2020
