1.    Introduction

The GeoInformatics Conference series was initiated by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) in 1992 and has held twenty-eight annual international conferences on geographic informatics all over the world. This international conference series has provided a unique forum for exchanging novel ideas and cutting-edge knowledge on geographic information sciences and technologies among GIScience professionals worldwide. GeoInformatics 2022 (the 29th CPGIS Annual Conference and the 30th Anniversary of the Founding of CPGIS) will be held on Augusts 15-18, 2022 at the China University of Geosciences (Beijing), Beijing, China. The primary theme of this year’s conference is “GISciences for Coordinated Urban-Rural Development”. Addressing the challenges and opportunities of coordinated Urban-Rural high-quality development we face in recent years, Geoinformatics 2022 particularly encourages topics related to how geographic information sciences and technologies respond to Urban-Rural development. Other presentations regarding cutting-edge research on or related to broadly-defined geographic information sciences, technologies, and applications, are also welcome, as always. The conference will include thematic presentations, group discussions, paper competitions, special forums, etc. All the accepted papers will be officially published as conference proceedings (EI retrieval). The conference will also organize academic special journals to recommend excellent papers to be published in SCI or SSCI retrieved journals after peer-review process.
