14th International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling: Theory, modeling and concepts in Geospatial Information Science
The Joint International Conference on Theory, Data Handling and Modelling in GeoSpatial Information Science will be held on May 26th to 28th 2010 in Hong Kong. This conference will be a major event in the international community of Geo-spatial information Science (GISc) in 2010, organized by: Commission II of the International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) and Commission of Geographic Information Science and Commission of Modelling Geographical Systems of the International Geographical Union (IGU). The conference will join together the Symposium of Technical Commission II of ISPRS, the Symposium on Spatial Data Handling and the Conference on Modelling Geographical Systems from IGU.
ISPRS is a society regrouping scientific societies from more than 100 countries working in domains related to photogrammetry, remote sensing and geographical information science. 2010 will be a special year for the society as it will be celebrating its centenary anniversary. The SPRS Technical Commission II Symposium is organised every four years alternately with the ISPRS Congress and is among the major events in ISPRS calendar regrouping leading scholars from the GISc and related communities. Last editions of the symposium were held in Ottawa, Canada (2002) and Vienna, Austria (2006) jointly with SDH.
The 14th International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling (SDH) is the premier biennial international research forum for Geospatial Information Science (GISc). It commenced in 1984, in Zurich, Switzerland and has been held in Seattle, USA; Sydney, Australia; Zurich, Switzerland; Charleston, USA; Edinburgh, UK; Delft, The Netherlands; Vancouver, Canada; Beijing, China; Ottawa, Canada; Leicester, UK; Vienna, Austria; and Montpellier, France.
The main objective is to bring together scholars and professionals from the international community of GISc to present latest achievements and to share experience in GISc research. The conference program will feature keynote speeches delivered by leading GISc scholars, technical sessions with reports of the latest research outcomes, student forum on meeting with GISc legends and commercial exhibitions showing the latest development of GISc technology.
