Call for Papers

The International Conference on Geoinformatics is an official conference of the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) and has attracted not only the CPGIS community members but also researchers, professionals and students from broad communities. The conference is organized annually at different cities across the world and as the organizers we welcome the thirty-first conference to be organized in Toronto this year.

The main theme of the proposed conference is “Geospatial Sciences for Sustainability”. Under this theme, the objective of the conference is to offer an engaging platform for networking and exchanging new ideas and cutting-edge knowledge among diverse GIScience professionals worldwide, and for promoting collaboration in geospatial science and sustainability.

In order to support the objective, sessions will be organized under a number of streams that include, but are not limited to:

  • GIScience for smart and sustainable cities
  • Geospatial studies in food insecurity, malnutrition, and agriculture
  • GIS and remote sensing for monitoring environmental and climate change
  • GIS and remote sensing in watershed management
  • GIS and remote sensing for monitoring greenhouse gas emission
  • Geospatial technology for public health and disease management
  • Geospatial information for climate action
  • Geospatial information for regional and global water cycles
  • Geospatial information for regional and global carbon cycles
  • Sustainable natural resource management across space
  • Geo-humanities and spatial inequality analysis
  • Big earth data in support of disaster assessment and management
  • Geospatial information sharing
  • Geospatial big data and GeoAI
  • Digital twins of the Earth and urban environments
  • Ground-based sensing networks
  • Advanced GIScience theory and method developments
  • Geoinformatics and education

The conference program will consist of 2-3 parallel sessions depending on the number of accepted presentations, in the form of either oral presentation or poster presentation.

A variety of venues will be arranged to publish conference contributions, e.g., special journal issues, proceedings, and edited books. Check out details here.
