The GEOINT 2011 Symposium takes place Oct. 16-19 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.
The GEOINT Symposium is the nation’s largest intelligence event of the year.
Last year, GEOINT 2010 attracted more than 4,000 total attendees to hear speakers and see exhibits focusing on a multi-INT agenda, and this year we expect another great turnout.
This year’s theme is Forging Integrated Intelligence. With this in mind, GEOINT 2011 offers 10 keynote speakers, three amazing panel discussions, lunchtime workshops, and afternoon breakout sessions on human geography and socio-cultural dynamics, open source GEOINT, weapons of mass destruction, crowd-sourced intelligence, international commercial satellite imagery, cloud computing, the Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise (DI2E), the implementation of NGA’s Vision, homeland security applications, and so much more.
GI_Forum 20115-8 July, 2011
The Centre for Geoinformatics at the University of Salzburg and the Institute for GIScience at the Austrian Academy of Sciences offer an annual forum to the worldwide geoinformatics community, bringing together English-speaking researchers and practitioners across disciplines and industries. Simultaneously, the GI_Forum connects participants into a well established co-located regional symposium - Applied Geoinformatics (AGIT www.agit.at) - sharing the state-of-the art AGIT-EXPO exhibit. Submission deadline February 1, 2011. More information: www.gi-forum.org, Contact: office [at] gi-forum.org.
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.
