Call for Proposals for CPGIS Young Scholar Workshops in China
Location: Guangzhou and Kaifeng, China
Date: June 17-23, 2012
CPGIS, in conjunction with Guangzhou University & Henan University, will organize the CPGIS young scholar workshops in China this summer. With Guangzhou being the center of the well-developed Pearl River Delta Metropolitan area, and Kaifeng being part of the emerging Zhengzhou-Kaifeng-Ruoyang Metropolitan area, the theme of this year is: Advanced Geo-technology in Natural Resources Management and Urban Planning. The project will select 4-5 young GIS scholars to deliver seminars in their area of specialty to the faculty members and students of the local hosting institutes. A tentative plan is as follows:
Time and Location:
June 17-19 Advanced Workshops at Guangzhou University
June 20-23, Advanced Workshops at Henan University
Organizer: The international association for Chinese Professionals in Geographical
Information Sciences (CPGIS)
Local Hosts: Guangzhou University (Professor Zhifeng Wu) and
Henan University (Professor Yaochen Qin)
Format: The participation will be composed of two parts: an open lecture and a research presentation. Each Young scholar from CPGIS needs to give an open lecture to the general public. The topic of lecture will focus on at least one geospatial technique or modeling methodology at his/her specialty. The lecture is estimated to last about one hour. Each Young scholar will also deliver a research presentation that best represents his/her research.
CPGIS is currently soliciting a one-page proposal from outstanding individuals who are interested in participating this event. The proposal should include a brief description of your proposed lecture content and research presentation. The final selection will be made based on the merit of proposal, the relevance of the proposal to the theme of the project, as well as the qualification of applicants.
Cost: Local hosts will provide domestic round trip tickets (a domestic city or Hong Kong to Guangzhou, Guangzhou to Kaifeng and Kaifeng to your domestic destination), local lodging and city tours. A tour to Shaolin Temple and Songshan Mountain will be arranged after the event. The cost will be covered by local host as well.
Please send your proposals and C.V. before March 31 to Shixiong Hu at email@example.com. Selected individuals will be noticed via email thereafter.
