CALL FOR PAPERS A BIG SUCCESS
The Call for Papers for the GSDI 11 World Conference attracted close to 350 abstracts. These abstracts cover a wide selection of inspiring geo-related themes drawn from all over the world. The program committee is actively selecting the most innovative and appealing contributions for oral presentation and for the poster program. The conference provides authors an opportunity to present their work in June 2009 in Rotterdam to an international audience. The selection of abstracts for GSDI 11 will be announced on or about February 1.
PLATINUM SPONSORS CONTINUE TO JOIN
With pride we are pleased to announce that Cyclomedia has joined ESRI and EuroGeographics as Platinum Sponsors for the conference.
CEO Paul Bosman states:
"CycloMedia recognizes that GSDI is a vast platform to discuss the challenges that different organizations face at the (inter)national, public and private level. It is a pleasure to have the Netherlands act as host country this time and I am proud that CycloMedia can deliver a contribution to this worldwide conference".
ESRI spokesman Frank Holsmuller clarifies:
"ESRI recognizes the GSDI conference as THE event to meet and inform the key players in the field of geo information. The GSDI-11 event promises to become extra interesting because it will take place close to the heart of the INSPIRE program."
EuroGeographics, the association for cadastral organizations in more than 40 European countries, is quite involved as well. The executive director, Dave Lovell, says enthusiastically:
"We are building bridges between our members and the many communities of users who rely on their authoritative information.
