AGILE'09: 12th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science

On behalf of the AGILE council and working groups, we invite you to participate at the 12th AGILE International Conference on GIScience, scheduled to take place in Hannover, Germany.

The program will offer parallel paper presentation sessions, keynote sessions, plenary round table debates, poster sessions and pre-conference workshops to share your ideas, explore on-going research, future developments, including state-of-the-art applications, and to network with the professionals from academia, industry, and government who are interested in promoting GI teaching and research activities among GI laboratories at the European level.

This year, for the first time, the conference will be held in parallel with an ISPRS workshop. The two events will take place at the same location, there will be selected sessions in common. In this way, we hope to encourage the exchange between researchers of the two societies AGILE and ISPRS for mutual benefit.
