COM.Geo 2010 Conference

Start: 
Monday, 2010-06-21
End: 
Wednesday, 2010-06-23
Details: 

The explosion of computing driven location based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies,  such as cloud computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications. More importantly, since everything in the computer network has its own location, all of them are related to geospatial technologies and applications. Like the hottest term “.com” in the late of 90’s, “.geo” would be another hottest term and field in the coming decades.

Data Flow from Space to Earth: Applications and interoperability

Start: 
Monday, 2011-03-21
End: 
Wednesday, 2011-03-23
Details: 

A huge amount of data is already provided by satellites watching to the Earth and the new services that are going to be implemented, including high accuracy and high reliability positioning and navigation systems, are offering new opportunities. However, a general lack of applications is preventing a full use of the present systems and could prevent the exploitation of future opportunities, also in terms of market development.  

Authors interested in providing a paper for this conference, see http://www.space.corila.it/Call.htm . Abstracts are due no later than January 15, 2011.

Event: 

Network Centric Operations Industry Consortium General Plenary and Technical Sessions

Start: 
Tuesday, 2012-02-28
End: 
Thursday, 2012-03-01
Details: 

The theme of the plenary is industry and governments working together to implement interoperability.  Dr. Paul Kaminski, Chairman of the US Department of Defense Science Board, and Gen(ret) Harald Kujat, former Chairman of NATO’s Military Committee are just a few the featured speakers along with senior industry executives.
 
Topics that will be explored in depth include market conditions providing the demand for interoperability, the transition of the NCOIC business case responding to the market, and a discussion by senior customers and industry executives of the need for interoperability for coalition and joint operations. The plenary session will provide an excellent opportunity to hear from those in a position to influence either RFPs or the responding proposals.
 
Additionally there will be a series of business and technical discussions that will tie business objectives with technical capabilities to allow industry understanding of customer views and customers of industry concerns.

GeoWeb 2010 - Vancouver, BC, Canada

Start: 
Monday, 2010-07-26
End: 
Monday, 2010-07-26
Details: 

GeoWeb 2010 will take place in Vancouver, Canada July 26-30 and its organizers are currently seeking submissions for presentations and workshops.

GeoWeb is the industry-leading conference focused on the collective impact of the Web on geographic information standards, architectures and technology and the convergence of GIS and the Internet and the resulting economic, social and technical consequences. GeoWeb 2010 will feature well known keynote and invited speakers, workshops and tutorials, technical presentations, panel sessions, and product showcase opportunities. No other geospatial conference provides this level of knowledge intensity and is a must-attend conference for anyone involved in shaping the future of the geospatial industry.

Distributed sensor networks are attracting more and more interest in applications for large-scale monitoring of the environment, civil structures, roadways, animal habitats, etc. With the rapidly increasing number of large-scale sensor network deployments, the vision of a World-Wide Sensor Web (WSW) is becoming a reality. Similar to the World-Wide Web (WWW), which acts essentially as a "World-Wide Computer", the Sensor Web can be considered as a "World-Wide Sensor" or a "cyberinfrastructure" that instruments and monitors the physical world at temporal and spatial scales that are currently impossible. The WSW will generate tremendous volumes of priceless data, enabling scientists to observe previously unobservable phenomena.

Sensor web examples include US's National Ecological Observatory Networks (NEON), Canada's Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing (GeoCENS), Korea's Ubiquitous City (uCity), etc. In addition, we are also seeing the emergence of citizen sensing systems that use the ubiquitous and location-enabled nature of mobile phones to build large-scale urban sensing systems that using the phones as mobile sensor nodes. Such citizen sensing systems include the Mobile Millennium project, the CycleSense project, etc.

The GeoWeb 2010 Sensor Web academic track seeks to address research issues related to sensor web. We aim to bring together sensor web experts to present novel research and exchange ideas relating to the state of the art and its future directions. Real world results and deployments are particularly welcomed.
