After the success of the first International Conference on Space Technology, which also resulted in a special issue on Space Technology of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, the second event is going to happen almost two years later. The proliferation of micro-satellites has made space affordable and accessible to many people. Space technology, therefore, spans a broad area of research and development, from electronic components for satellites to intelligent systems for on-board data analysis. Most of the satellites face the Earth rather than the outer space. From home electricity meter readings to disaster monitoring, surveillance and crop forecast, satellites play a very important role now in our daily lives. It has also become increasingly evident that a lot has to be gained by considering the whole pipeline of sensors, data collection, data processing, conclusions drawing, actions taken, rather than try to solve individual problems in isolation. This series of conferences is designed to bring together people who work on different aspects of space technology research, in hope that the interactions along this chain of activity will be facilitated and enhanced.
We particularly encourage the participation of industry, as this event aspires to serve also as a forum where new products are shown and new alliances made. Two page abstracts and industry demonstrations are invited.
La Conferenza AMFM 2012 è articolata in due giornate durante le quali saranno affrontati e discussi i seguenti aspetti:
La informazione geografica digitale e le iniziative politiche ed organizzative in Italia
- La utilizzazione della informazione geografica per la sicurezza
- Il repertorio dei dati territoriali : strumento e motore per l'utilizzo della informazione geografica digitale
- I modelli dati land-use e land-cover e natural risk zones: armonizzazione dei dataset esistenti e/o innovazione nelle pratiche di costruzione dell'informazione per lo spatial planning
Sono previste tre finestre sulle soluzioni tecnologiche a cura di Intergraph, Esri Italia, Sinergis e Planetek Italia.
Nel corso della prima giornata sarà assegnato il RICONOSCIMENTO PER LA UTILIZZAZIONE DELLA INFORMAZIONE GEOGRAFICA DIGITALE NELLE ZONE COLPITE DAL TERREMOTO 2012
24th - 27th January

Defence Geospatial Intelligence (DGI) is Europe's largest and most international annual gathering dedicated to the high-level discussion of the importance and the major challenges of the use of geospatial intelligence in both defence and national security operations.
DGI brings together 700 heads of Geospatial Intelligence, Remote Sensing, GIS Mapping, Satellite Imagery and Analysis within the Military, Governmental and National Security sectors. It attracts professionals who are responsible for using, and integrating, geo based capabilities in their operations and organisations. DGI provides a unique forum for defense intelligence to discuss and debate the development of geospatial intelligence capabilities across the globe in defence and security sectors.
Addressing the use of geospatial information in scenarios such as international conflicts, defence intelligence operations, C4ISR, humanitarian disasters, crime, national security, border control, arms treaty monitoring and global climate change; a fundamental objective of DGI is to help organisations understand how to build the necessary infrastructure and architecture to take advantage of geospatial intelligence (geoint) capabilities.

The upcoming FOSS4G 2011 will take place from September 12-16 in Denver, Colorado.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Association of Geographic Information (AGI) have joined forces to offer you the chance to learn more about open standards and interoperability. Hosted at the Met Office in Exeter on 22nd June 2012, following the OGC Technical Committee meetings earlier that week, the day will be of interest to everyone in the geocommunity, especially those who want to know more about what Open Government and international geospatial standards can offer them and their organisation.If you are interested in standards policy and the EC INSPIRE Directive, or the recent UK Government consultation on Open Standards, there will be representation from Central Government, Ordnance Survey Great Britain and the Met Office, amongst others. If you are more technically minded there will be a hands-on workshop where you’ll get the chance to try out OGC compliant web services and data feeds in open source software. Remember to bring your laptop!More details to be confirmed in the coming weeks. There are exhibitor and sponsor opportunities available for this event.

Members and non-members of the OGC are invited to attend the "Oceans/Met/Hydro Water Cycle Summit" to learn what has been accomplished so far by the two working groups and to discuss what remains to be done.
The ability to easily exchange hydrological, oceanographic, meteorological and climatological information in a timely and useful fashion is becoming increasingly important for operational purposes as well as research. New information technologies present new opportunities for collecting, publishing, discovering, accessing and using data, but open, international interface and encoding standards and best practices are necessary to make the most of these opportunities.
These two OGC working groups provide venues and a mechanism for seeking technical and institutional solutions to the challenge of describing and exchanging data about the state and location of water resources and atmospheric and oceaonographic phenomena. The groups work to ensure that OGC standards allow the hydrological, meteorological, and ocean observation communities to achieve effective interoperability across the world's information technology infrastructure.
The summit will focus on information system interoperability as it relates to understanding the water cycle, though other domain requirements also shape the development of the relevant interface and encoding standards.
While the WMO's Commission for Hydrology (CHy) has the recognized mandate to publish and promote international hydrology standards, the OGC contributes to the process with its resources and experience in guiding collaborative development among disparate participants in a rapidly evolving technological environment. The OGC Hydrology Domain Working Group is open to both member and non member participation and is intended to be a public forum for communication. A similar relationship exists between the WMO's Commission for Basic Services (CBS) and the OGC Meteorology and Oceanography Domain Working Group. The email list and the wiki for each Working Group are open to all interested parties.
