GI Forum 2020

GI_Forum provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds, informing the GeoInformation Society, contributing to a more just, ethical and sustainable society.

GI_Forum 2020: connecting spatially

GeoInformatics is established today as effective methodology, based on georeferenced technologies and has become the standard feature in many application domains. How did this dynamic development towards a key discipline of digitalization happen, not only in the economic sector but in all spheres of our daily lives?

Coordinates serve as key connection among all location-based data and information. Integration by means of ‘spatial joins’ results in new information, thus, providing additional knowledge as basis of decision-making processes for science, economy and our entire society.

Networking on every level

GI_Forum’s characteristic mix of scientific symposium and international networking platform, paired with a German language sister conference, AGIT and its EXPO, makes for an interesting exchange among colleagues. The GI_Week in Salzburg is a unique opportunity to meet experts in the field; to discuss the latest research in and outside many different sessions; gain hands-on experience in numerous workshops; or start a new project over a cup of coffee or during a walk on the premises of the University of Salzburg’s Faculty of Natural Sciences.

GI_Forum is organized by the University of Salzburg, under the coordination of the Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS and in cooperation with the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
