For the first time ever, 2017 will see the Locate Conference join with the International Symposium on Digital Earth– making Sydney the site of one of the biggest spatial events in history.
A call for papers has been announced across a diverse list of 29 topics related to spatial sciences and surveying. The submission deadline is 15th November, 2016 and academics, government and private industry professionals alike are invited to get involved.
The joint conference will be held over three days between 3-6 April 2017 at the newly re-opened International Conference Centre Sydney.
The International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), founded in Beijing in 2006, is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit international organisation principally promoting academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration towards Digital Earth. The 10th International Symposium on Digital Earth (ISDE10) will explore Digital Earth as an enabling technology to play a key role in a smart and sustainable future.
The Locate Conference (Locate17) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA).
