The Geoinformatics conference series was initiated by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) in 1992.
This international conference series has provided a unique forum for exchanging novel ideas and cutting-edge knowledge on geographic information sciences and
technologies among GIS professionals worldwide.
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of CPGIS. The National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis at Buffalo (NCGIA-Buffalo) is proud to host this landmark event at the birth place of CPGIS to celebrate 25 years' success and pay tribute to CPGIS members.
We welcome traditional topics in GIScience and also encourage papers on new and emergent themes including: Big GeoData, GIScience of the Internet of Things, Geospatial Semantic Web, Sensor Geomatics, Geosimulation Modeling, Mobile Computing, Mobile Behavior, Complex Networks, Online Social Media, Cyber Computing, Events and Process, and Critical GIS to address societal issues, such as climate change, smart cities, precision medicine, urban mobility, crime analysis, migration, disaster, and environmental sustainability.
Topics on China are especially encouraged. These include, but not limited to, population, urban development, and environment. Papers from a wide range of disciplines related to Geographic Information Sciences are invited, including: Geography, Cognitive science, Computer science, Engineering, Information science, Social science, Urban Planning, among many others.
