Welcome to GeoInformatics 2011

The Geoinformatics conference series was initiated by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences(CPGIS) in 1992. This annual international conference has provided a unique forum for exchanging ideas and knowledge on geo-information sciences between GIS professionals worldwide. The 19th International Conference on Geoinformatics (Geoinformatics 2011) will be held on June 24-26, 2011 at Shanghai, China. The conference is co-organized by “Key Lab of Geographical Information Science, Ministry of Education, East China Normal University”, "The Lab for Urban and Regional Analysis, East China University of Science and Technology”, and “The International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS)”.

The conference theme is “GIS in Education and Business” It 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 also like to invite all interested parties to propose special sessions for Geoinformatics 2011. 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.

Should you have any enquiry, please free feel to contact us.

We look forward to meeting you in Shanghai next summer!
