The organisers of the event have just launched the call for papers, so, if you have a paper on big data, open government, indoor position, location and the cloud, location analytics, or map-making in the 21st century, and wish to have your paper seen by some of the freshest minds in the geo-community, you are highly encouraged to submit.
Papers will be selected on the basis of quality of abstract, originality, topicality, relevance and providing solutions to issues. The selection of papers will be made by the Program Committee, whose decision will be final. Presentation sessions are generally 20 minutes in duration, with additional time for questions.
Applications to present a paper should be submitted before 19 October 2012. For more information, including how to submit, visit www.geonext.com.au/call-for-papers.
Sponsorships for GeoNext 2013 are also available.
The team at GeoNext will deliver a program and event that is fundamentally different to the existing industry and vendor events. They will work with you to build a sponsorship package that directly leverages your organisational capabilities, strengths, and brand to make you part of the fabric and conversation before, during and after the event.
