The Potomac Region of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS-PR) is pleased to announce the 15th annual GeoTech: The Premiere Mid-Atlantic Imagery and Geospatial Conference, exploring "Emerging Geospatial Technologies and Applications" on 7 and 8 October 2008. The 2-day event features 1 day of Workshops taught by experts, and 1 day of Technical sessions. Co-hosted by theNational Geodetic Survey (NGS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), GeoTech 2008 will be held at the NOAA's Auditorium and Science Center in Silver Spring, MD.
The GeoTech 2008 Conference will provide workshops covering LiDAR, 3-D Urban Modeling, GIS/Remote Sensing Integration, and Geodesy. The Technical Program will focus on Geospatial Data Acquisition, Geospatial Data Production and Distribution, and Emerging Geospatial Applications
ASPRS-PR will offer the Certification Examination Review Workshop for ASPRS Certification as a Certified Mapping Scientist and Certified Photogrammetrist.
Continuing Education Credits will be offered for those professionals requiring recertification.
During the Technical Session, an opportunity will be available to ask questions about the pending State of Virginia Photogrammetrist Licensing Requirements.
Representatives from the Geospatial industry will be on-hand to exhibit their latest tools and offerings.

This one day IGARSS pre-conference workshop is focused on Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) engineering, implementation of the GEOSS information infrastructure, and GEOSS emerging applications and pilot projects. The workshop will also provide a forum for discussing the development and operational issues of Air Quality and Coastal Ecosystems. Specific emphasis will be on the overarching engineering challenges for this system of systems.

Service-Oriented Software Research Network (SOSoRNET) and Centre for Geospatial Science, University of Nottingham would like to invite you to join us for a two day workshop on geospatial web services which will be held at the University of Nottingham. Participation in the workshop is free but limited to 50 people on first come registration basis.
The key aims of this workshop are:
to hear presentations from leading academic and industry players on their research on geospatial web services technology
to network and develop ideas for future collaborative research in geospatial web services
to understand current developments in geospatial web services with focus on generalization and schematization research.
