Topics and Special Sessions

GIScience and Learning with Geomedia

The GI_Forum provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds in an ongoing effort to support the creation of an informed GISociety. Bearing in mind different perspectives from a variety of professions, presentations, workshops and exhibitions will concentrate on innovations in education, science and technologies, in the spatial domain and their possible contribution to a more just, ethical and sustainable society.

The 2017 GI_Forum motto is ‘geospatial@online’; we thus solicit contributions as full and short papers focusing on, but not limited to the following themes:

  • Empirical Research in Spatial Education
  • Geodata and GI Services
  • GIScience Analytics and Geovisualization
  • Innovation in Geospatial Technologies
  • Learning Environments in Schools
  • Spatial Citizenship
  • Spatial Data Infrastructures

In addition to the regular topics, GI_Forum will host a number of special sessions, tracks and workshops:
