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.
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.

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
