Geoinformatics 2023 Conference was successfully held at UCL

We hope this message finds you well and that you have returned from the 30th International Conference on Geoinformatics 2023 with newfound knowledge and connections. The conference, hosted by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) at University College London (UCL) from July 19-21, 2023, was a resounding success, and we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your participation and valuable contributions.

The 30th International Conference on Geoinformatics focused on the theme of "Space-time AI and Urban Analytics". Throughout the event, esteemed researchers, scholars, and professionals from 12 countries and 99 institutions engaged in innovative discussions and presentations covering a wide range of topics, including Space-time AI, environment GIS and application, geospatial cloud computing, WebGIS, health geography, and more.

Notable keynote speakers, including Prof Deren Li (Wuhan University, China), Prof Michael Batty (UCL CASA), Prof Mei-po Kwan (The Chinese University of Hong Kong), and Prof Mark Birkin (Alan Turing Institute), delivered insightful addresses on advancements in remote sensing satellite, future cities, human mobility & health research, and digital twins.

The conference provided a unique platform for the geoinformatics community to showcase their work, exchange ideas, and form collaborations. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, this onsite conference marked a significant step towards fostering connections and progress in the field.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the organising committee, keynote speakers, session chairs, and volunteers for their dedication and hard work in ensuring a smooth and enriching experience for all attendees.

As we look forward to the future, we are excited to announce plans for the 31st International Conference on Geoinformatics, scheduled to take place in August 2024 in Toronto, Canada. More details will be released on the CPGIS website at

Once again, thank you for making the 30th International Conference on Geoinformatics a resounding success. Your passion for advancing knowledge and driving innovation in our field is truly inspiring.
