China won the competition to host the ISDE-6
In the year of the 60th Anniversary of the People`s Republic of China, Beijing will organise the next International Symposium on Digital Earth in 2009. All the applicants including Israel and Hungary received 10-10 minutes to introduce their bids in the Meeting of the ISDE Board on 4th June here in Berkeley.
In the Q/A part notes and questions raised by Professors John van Genderen and Michael Goodchild related to the Hungarian presentation were positive.
For 2008 the German Society for GI won against New Zealand to host the ISDE Summit in the theme Global Change and GIS. This Conference will be held in Potsdam and is scheduled for November 2008.
The distributed Hungarian proposal included a two page reasoning plus a two-page introduction of the host organistion and its members. The escorting letter addressed to Prof. Guo Huadong, Secretary General of ISDE and Deputy Secretary General of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was also disseminated for information. These documents will be accessible on this blog later on.
