The 17th International Conference on Geoinformatics (Geoinformatics 2009)


August 12-14, 2009 at Fairfax, Virginia, USA

The 17th International Conference on Geoinformatics (Geoinformatics 2009) will be held on August 12-14, 2009 at Fairfax, Virginia, USA. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society (IEEE-GRSS), the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS), the U. S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the U. S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and George Mason University. The Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) of George Mason University is the local organizer of the conference. 

The conference will provide an unprecedented opportunity for professionals and students from remote sensing, Geoinformation science, and related disciplines to discover cutting-edge geoinformatics technology and applications, while at the same time exchanging their ideas, research results, professional experiences, and future visions in the fields of geographic information science, remote sensing, and their applications.

The conference will include plenary, special, oral, and poster sessions. Please consider submitting your abstracts and papers to the sessions most suitable for exchanging your ideas and research with similar researchers.

The Organization Committee would like to invite all interested parties to propose special sessions for Geoinformatics 2009. Special session Chairs can propose full sessions (10 papers) or half sessions (5 papers). The Session chairs are responsible for inviting the papers and ensuring these papers are submitted via the normal conference referee process. If a Special Session lacks enough papers to complete the time allotment, additional papers can be selected from the general paper submissions.

Conference Theme: ??The ways to advance GIScience researches and applications??

Special Sessions:

Professionals are welcome to organize special sessions. The special session proposal should include the following information:
?	Session chair(s) names, affiliations
?	Contact information
?	Session title
?	Full or half (10 or 5 papers)
?	List of potential contributors to be invited (if available)
?	Short description of the session (about 150 words)
Submit completed session proposals to

Please refer to ??Special Sessions?? at the conference Web site for details on organizing your special sessions.

Abstracts and Papers:

Participants are invited to electronically submit original, unpublished research contributions or experience reports not concurrently submitted elsewhere. All abstracts must be 300-500 words long and written in English. They will be refereed for quality, originality, and relevance by the program committee. The first call is for an extended abstract. Authors of the accepted abstracts will be invited to submit full papers to be published by IEEE eXplore that is EI-indexed. Some selected papers will be published in special issues of SCI-indexed journals. 

Please submit abstracts online at Abstracts must include title, authors (first name surname), indicating the presenter by underlining their name and providing author's contact details: affiliations, department, full address (street, city, state/province, and country), telephone, fax, and Email.

Special programs for participating students:
Student paper awards will be given, to encourage student participation to the conference and publication of their research results.
