ISPRS TC V Symposium @ Manila, Philippines

The Philippines will host the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Technical Commission V (TC V) Symposium with the theme, ‘Insight to Foresight via Geospatial Technologies,’ from 6 to 8 August 2024 in Manila.

The three-day event will feature plenary and parallel sessions, exhibits, poster presentations and business meetings, and aims to inspire new methods of teaching/learning, collaboration, and promotion of accessible and easy-to-use geospatial data among engage professionals, educators and tertiary students.

ISPRS TC V focuses on the capacity building of professionals, educators and students, and in developing cost-effective teaching methods. These include distance learning programs, international collaborations on sharing web-based resources, and curricula development that meets regional needs.

35th International Geographical Congress @ Dublin, Ireland
Aug 24 @ 5:26 am – Aug 30 @ 6:26 am
35th International Geographical Congress @ Dublin, Ireland

The 35th International Geographical Congress (IGC), to be held in Dublin, Ireland in August 2024, will provide an opportunity to share the best of global geographic research, discuss common challenges and opportunities and connect with colleagues from across the world.

The event is being organised by the International Geographical Union and the Geographical Society of Ireland.

The IGC 2024 will continue the tradition of previous congresses in recognising that our world faces many common natural and societal challenges that can only be dealt with through global action, understanding and sharing. In this respect, geography as a discipline, its skills, attributes and the geographic mindset has much to offer other disciplines, policymakers, officials, politicians and communities.

The theme of the congress is ‘Celebrating a World of Difference,’ and we are strongly focused through our academic and fieldwork program on:

  • supporting intercultural awareness and understanding;
  • promoting intellectual diversity as a strength;
  • bringing geographic research and thinking beyond the congress walls; and
  • grappling with the complex interconnections between people, place and the natural world.

3rd International Workshop on Geographic Modelling and Simulation @ Nanjing, china
Oct 25 – Oct 28 all-day
3rd International Workshop on Geographic Modelling and Simulation @ Nanjing, china

The complexities of understanding and forecasting evolutionary processes necessitate geographic modelling and simulation, which have emerged as potent tools for addressing critical issues such as climate change and sustainable resource use. But there is a pressing need for an open geographical modelling and simulation framework. Such a framework would serve as a catalyst, attracting more scholars and encouraging their collective efforts to address geographic challenges.

This workshop is designed to explore pertinent theories, approaches and potential applications, while fostering communication among experts from diverse domains. Its primary objectives include stimulating extensive discussions regarding the potential directions of the field and promoting further research, thus paving the way for a promising future in collaborative geographic modelling and simulation.

Organisers:

  • School of Geography Science, Nanjing Normal University, China
  • Key Laboratory of Virtual Geographic Environment (Ministry of Education of PRC), Nanjing Normal University, China
  • International Geographical Union – Modeling Geographical Systems Commission

Co-organisers:

  • International Environmental Modelling and Software Society
  • The International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences
  • Geographic Model and Geographic Information Analysis Commission, The Geographical Society of China
  • Working Group on Education and Capability Building for Digital Earth, International Society for Digital Earth
  • Jiangsu Center for Collaborative Innovation in Geographical Information Resource Development and Application, China
  • National Earth System Science Data Center – Yangtze River Delta Subcenter
