The Korean government invites you to participate in 'Smart Korea 2010'.
Smart Korea 2010 will take place in In-San city near Seoul, South, 1-3 September 2010. It is hosted by the Korean government (MLTM, Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs of Korea) in charge of GIS.
More than 3000 people working in GIS and GIS related fields from Korea and abroad have been invited to participate in this annual event. MLTM has invited non-GIS professionals to participate as well. If you attend, you can see all of the Korean GIS developed by government, industry and academics. It will also be a good place for you to share your GIS experience.
The organizer is currently seeking submissions for those wishing to participate in the conference and exhibition. All companies and governments that would like to participate in this event based on their GIS experience, will be welcomed.

The aim of this workshop is to study the impact of spatial information and spatial planning tools on economic, social and environmental aspects of local authorities in general, and on the empowerment of local authorities in particular. The aim is also to investigate the international knowledge and practice on how surveyors may assist real estate markets, good governance, environmental management and planning initiatives by providing reliable spatial and relevant infrastructures.
The meeting will be held in Paris, France.
Future ISR 2012 is a joint C4ISR conference, exhibition and roundtable discussion event for ISR leaders from government and industry. The C4ISR Conference features 15 plenary presentations, 7 panel discussions and 17 roundtable working group discussion.
OGC will represent its Defense and Intelligence Domain Working Group (D&I DWG) at the 2012 Future ISR event. The OGC D&I DWG is comprised of representatives from a range of organizations engaged in geospatial activities for military and intelligence purposes. This community consists of government, industry, academia and non-government agencies. The intelligence component for this Domain Working Group (DWG) relates to defense intelligence, including geospatial intelligence in a defense context. The following areas of intelligence are supported by other OGC Domain Working groups: law enforcement, public security, disaster management, and emergency management.
OGC's presentation at the event will zoom in on the necessity of interoperability and standards in the ever-shifting operational needs that require agility in coalition and multi-national operations.

On the horizon for geospatial technology is the potential forhosting applications using a cloud computing solution. We introduced this topic at Location Intelligence 2009 and it was by far a topic that needed additional discussion. So, in 2010, we will focus the conference entirely on this topic in a one-day executive symposium at the Newseum in Washington DC. Topics will address Software as a Service (SaaS), virtualization, Platform as a Service (PaaS), OGC web standards, business models, geospatial data delivery and other topics.

The theme of this year's INSPIRE Conference is "INSPIREd by 2020 - Contributing to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth"
In 2010, the European Union renewed its commitment to 'knowledge-based' sustainable development by putting forward three mutually reinforcing priorities in the Europe 2020 Strategy1:
Smart growth: developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation;
Sustainable growth: promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy;
Inclusive growth: fostering a high-employment economy delivering social and territorial cohesion.
The University of Edinburgh will present a workshop, "Shibboleth Federations and Secure SDI: Outcome and Demonstrations from the OGC Web Service Shibboleth Interoperability Experiment."
This edition of the INSPIRE Conference offers an opportunity to explore INSPIRE's contribution to Europe's 2020 strategic goals and to root its further implementation and development in the EU 2020 follow-up programmes.
