The OSGIS conference series has a strong international focus and takes a holistic approach in bringing together speakers and delegates from government, academe, industry and open source communities. High profile speakers from all over the world are invited for giving presentations and running hands-on workshops for the conference series.
As the technologies for Augmented Reality continue to evolve and mature, participants in the ecosystem are beginning to call for open AR interfaces and data formats which operate consistently across a variety of different AR development environments, use cases and end user platforms (desktop, mobile, etc).
This workshop is designed to provide a forum in which to examine activities across different constituencies and by working together, to significantly advance the development of standards for Augmented Reality.
All those who are currently working towards open interfaces via standards bodies are invited to present the status of their activities. Companies and individuals who are interested or wish to contribute their projects to the advancement of AR standards are welcome.
GDI APAC brings together the best speakers in this fast growing GEOINT region, giving attendees an unprecedented opportunity to network with peers and current and potential clients in the defence and security sectors.
Carl Reed, the OGC's CTO and Executive Director of the Standards Program, will speak about "Democratising Standards: Moving Towards Interoperability," and will address these topics:
- Assessing the status of interoperability in the field of geographic information
- Supporting interoperable solutions that “geo-enable” the web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT
- Why do we need open standards? Discussing the move towards enterprise GIS
The infrastructure deficit currently facing municipalities worldwide is actually a once-in-a-generation opportunity to improve the efficiency of energy, transportation, land-use, water and waste systems in communities, and thereby cut costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and take a giant step in the direction of sustainability. Integrated Community Energy Solutions (ICES) is a model that is being implemented worldwide to achieve these results.
Cold climate communities present a unique challenge with respect to energy use. I invite you to participate in QUEST’s 6th annual conference - the only conference and tradeshow in Canada that is taking an integrated approach to addressing our current infrastructure and investment challenges. This year’s event will showcase the latest research, proven solutions, and the most innovative opportunities relating to ICES, and all within the context of creating smart energy communities in cold climates.

GIS Development is pleased to announce the fourth Geospatial World Forum on 23 – 27 April 2012 at RAI Convention Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Geospatial World Forum is a forum for the various stakeholders of the global geospatial community, offering seminars, workshops and panel discussions covering a broad range of topics from technology to policy to user oriented themes at global level. It is an opportunity for geospatial industry, users, academia, entrepreneurs and government leaders to meet, invest, influence and shape the business, technological and policy landscapes of today and tomorrow. Geospatial World aims to bring together about 2500 participants representing different stakeholder communities under one roof to exchange ideas and experiences involving innovative uses of geospatial information and technology in addressing global to local issues.
The theme of the fourth Geospatial World Forum is "Geospatial Industry and World Economy." The event is aimed at promoting and projecting the utility and relevance of the geospatial industry and connecting the industry with major economy-driving industries including energy, mining, infrastructure and agriculture, but in the context of issues such as environmental management, climate change, health, education, and social development.
