INSPIRE (2007/2/EC) zu demonstrieren.

Anläßlich unseres 10-jährigen Jubiläums "10. Sächsisches GIS-Forum - GI2010 - "
konnten erneut hochrangige EU-Experten auf dem Gebiet von eGOVERNMENT,
GEOINFO und INSPIRE aus AT, BE, CZ, und UK gewonnen werden.

und Praktikern aus den Fachbereichen GEO+UMWELT+PLANUNG auch 2010 wieder
die Möglichkeit, sich als Autor neben weiteren europäischen Keynote-Referenten mit
einer eigenen Präsentation (Vortrag, Poster, PC-Demo oder Workshop-Angebot)
einzubringen (siehe dazu auch archivierte Proceedings von GI2009 bzw. GI2008
