Plans are rapidly taking shape for the 15th Global Spatial Data Infrastructure World Conference (GSDI 15). With the Abstract submission deadline extended to 1 June 2016, don’t miss your chance to participate! GSDI appreciates it is a busy time of the year for professional staff and academics alike, so the conference program committee is maximizing the submission and review period. Remember that oral presentations are possible based on acceptance of extended Abstracts alone, if authors do not wish to submit full Papers. Also, authors can elect to have submitted Papers fully peer-reviewed or not, as they wish. And don't forget that Poster submissions are also permitted and very welcome!
GSDI 15 is being held in Taipei, Taiwan (Republic of China) from 28 November to 2 December 2016, under the theme “Spatial Enablement in the Smart Homeland”. The Conference is being jointly hosted by GSDI and its Taiwan-based members, the Taiwan Association of Disaster Prevention Industry (TADPI) and the Taiwan Geographic Information System Center (TGIC), with strong support from Ministry of the Interior (MOI), Government of Taiwan.
GSDI would like to see as many of you as possible at the conference which is shaping up to be a dynamic week with excellent keynote speakers. Mark Reichardt, President of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), Barbara Ryan, Secretariat Director of the Intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO), Ed Parsons, the Geospatial Technologist of Google, and Greg Scott, the Inter-Regional Advisor on Global Geospatial Information Management in the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), will deliver thought-provoking talks on the status, trends, and future of spatial data infrastructure.
You and your colleagues are invited and encouraged to discuss SDI practices, learn from industry specialists, and broaden your network. GSDI 15 offers numerous opportunities for oral presentations of abstracts and papers (refereed and non-refereed), posters and a refereed publication (http://m1e.net/c?73682120-OfnplwMnWvLjI%40387079303-IYUWg0PIFC6qs The deadline for Abstracts is 1 June 2016.

Presentations will cover the full range of practice, development, and research experiences that advance the objective of spatially enabling citizens, government, and industry in the areas of Smart City, Smart Transportation and Smart Disaster Prevention.. The Conference will showcase strategies, policies, best-practices, and innovations that are driving collaboration and interoperability with respect to spatial data collection, access, visualization, and analysis for “Spatial Enablement in the Smart Homeland”.
We look forward to seeing you in Taipei in 2016!
