This First International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-Geoinformatics 2012) will be held in Shanghai, China on August 2-4, 2012. This conference has been sponsored by USDA through a Science and Education Competitive Grants Program grant "Enhancing Knowledgeable Agricultural Decision Support in Global Perspectives - Collaborative Partnership in Agro-geoinformatics Education and Research Exchange" and other organizations. The Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) of George Mason University is responsible for organizing and Shanghai Jiaotong University for hosting the conference. We estimate that at least 200 professionals from all over the world will attend the conference. The conference will include plenary, oral, and poster sessions.
The annual Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will return to Abu Dhabi for its 6th edition. Year on year the event has grown in stature and this year will be no different. With a renewed focus on military GeoInt challenges Geospatial Intelligence Middle East will examine how Geospatial Intelligence has become a crucial element of C4ISR and overall military strategy, implications for future national security strategies and how this all fits into an overall multi-agency geospatial strategy.
Welcome to Berlin
The 5th International 3D GeoInfo Workshop 2010 aims at bringing together international state-of-the-art research and facilitating the dialogue on emerging topics in the field of 3D geo-information. In recent years, research has focused on improving 3D data acquisition technology through remote sensing, photogrammetry, laser altimetry techniques (LiDAR), and visualization technology (3D CAD and Virtual Reality (VR) system) for 3D urban environments. The resulting 3D models can be maintained in several types of 3D models: TEN (Tetrahedral Network), Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) models, Regular Polytopes, TIN Boundary representation and 3D volume quad edge structure, layered/topology models, voxel based models, 3D models used in urban planning/polyhedrons, and n-dimensional models including time. However, researchers still face many challenges today regarding the development of suitable data models representing topological relationships among 3D spatial objects in built environments.

CEN/TC 287 Geographic information, in collaboration with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) will host a workshop, a part of the Enviroinfo Conference week. This workshop is sponsored by Sparx Systems. Every smart grid device and phenomenon has a location, and thus communicating location information is a critical smart grid requirement.
MundoGEO#Connect LatinAmerica 2013, Conference and Trade Fair for Geomatics and Geospatial Solutions (http://mundogeoconnect.com/2013/en) is the largest conference and trade fair of geomatics and geospatial solutions in Latin America. It will be held this year in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from June 18 thru 20. The program includes more than 15 activities, among forums, special events, courses and user meetings. The previous event edition had 3,350 participants from 27 countries and over 70 global brands in the fair. The 2013 event program was created from suggestions of the geospatial community, through the evaluation of the previous editions and also a request for ideas, in which professionals in the industry sent their opinions on how to solve the key challenges of geospatial technologies in Latin America.
Among the many choices of activities, the event organization offers customized packages for participants and discounts for teachers, researchers, students, groups and subscribers of the MundoGEO magazine. "In 2013, we set a different way for the professional to register, from which you can choose only one activity or a combination among them, with special discounts. Additionally, the option to register in the forums allows the freedom to choose up to seven different topics with only one investment. All that plus the time in between intervals or the open day to visit the trade fair of products and services, which is going to hit a record of exhibition booths", explains Emerson Zanon Granemann, director and publisher of MundoGEO.
