International LiDAR Mapping Forum call for papers

By on 22 May, 2012
The Technical Committee for the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), which is taking place in Denver, USA, February 11-13, 2013, has announced a Call for Papers and invites any interested parties to submit their abstracts by September 28, 2012 online here.
The ILMF Technical Committee, led by Conference Chairman Alastair MacDonald from TMSI, will peer-review each abstract and the final program will be announced in November.

ILMF set a new record for attendees in January 2012, when 773 professionals from 29 different countries turned up for the 12th annual event. This proved once again that LiDAR, in its increasing variety of operational formats – either alone or when complementing other technologies – is becoming the technology of choice for fast, accurate and quality geospatial data acquisition. Whether supporting highly detailed 3D urban mapping projects, forestry management, or railroad and power transmission line maintenance programs, LiDAR technology delivers the results needed by today’s demanding geospatial and mapping professionals. 
Conference Chairman, Alastair MacDonald of TMS International, comments: “The quality of the papers presented at ILMF2012 was outstanding. The highly positive reaction to the topics from the delegates, which included many newcomers as end-users of LiDAR data, showed how important and relevant the chosen subjects were to the fast growing LiDAR community.” 
Running alongside the conference will, once again, be the exhibition of more than 50 companies expected to demonstrate new LiDAR products and a wide range of new technologies and services.   The ILMF welcomes organisations involved in Airborne and Bathymetric LiDAR and Mobile Mapping Systems, including system and component manufacturers, operators, service companies and specialists in data processing, handling and management, to exhibit or sponsor at the ILMF event.

The organisers of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum also organise the European conference that is now in its 3rd year. Based upon the successful 12-year track record of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), coupled with the growing acceptance in Europe of the benefits of LiDAR in low-cost mapping, the European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) was born.
