GI_Forum 2013 - Creating the GISociety
GI_Forum runs concurrently with the highly regarded German language conference on Applied Geoinformatics – AGIT (www.agit.at). The two symposia share some 1200 participants, the innovative AGIT EXPO exhibit and stimulating social events.
GI_Forum programme online: With more than 70 presentations and workshops GI_Forum 2013 offers a programme with the goal of promoting interest in translating theory, methods and techniques into a broad range of GI application domains.

Keynote speakers will be available for additional discussion with young researchers within the framework of our Young Researcher Corner.
