Environmental Management research and practice is increasingly aided by and dependent on information technology. Enviromatics 2010 addresses recent developments in Geomatics and their applications in the field of environmental management. It addresses all aspects of the geo-information cycle, from data acquisition, processing, management, visualization and delivery. Enviromatics 2010 brings together researchers, developers, data providers and users from all over the world to discuss the potentials and challenges of using information technology in environmental management and planning.

The symposium provides a forum to examine and discuss current practices and future directions related to the application of information technology to environmental management and planning. The symposium aims to provide the participants an occasion to share and exchange experiences and research findings, to stimulate more ideas and useful insights regarding the uses of Geomatics and their applications in the field of environmental management, and to debate their views on future research and developments.

Topics of Interest

We invite scholars and practitioners in Geomatics, computer engineering, environmental management to submit papers on any topic related to conference theme.

MODSIM WORLD Canada, June 8-11 / Saskatchewan Interactive

You may not be aware that ModsimWorld is an annual event in Virginia Beach, US. We have recently negotiated an agreement to bring this international event to Canada to promote Modelling & Simulation as a lead Science & Technology investment that significantly advances the economy while advancing valued outcomes in defense, in Public Security, in health, to name but a few fields.

ModSim World Canada’s goal is to encourage international collaboration and cross-discipline transfer of technology. We are focusing the international spotlight on Canadian businesses, Universities and Research labs that can either lead M&S projects or partner with larger enterprises due to their innovative technology.

Digital Heritage: Our Hi-tech – STORY for the Future

Technologies to Document, Preserve, Communicate,
and Prevent the Destruction of our Fragile Cultural Heritage

October 20 – 26th, 2008, Cyprus
Amathus-Hotel, Limassol


You are kindly invited to submit a paper to the VSMM 2008 joint conference which will provide an opportunity to exchange research results, opinions, experiences and proposals on the best practice and hi-tech tools from Information and Communications Technology to document, preserve, manage and communicate Cultural Heritage (CH). The main goal of the event is not only to illustrate the programs underway but also excellent work wherever it is located and however it is supported, in order to promote a common approach to the tasks of e-documentation of World Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, regional capacities in the area of Cultural Heritage and IT will be facilitated in advancing their know-how through the exchange of information and generation of new ideas and cooperation’s, where the world meets the finger prints of several ancient civilizations on earth.
To reach this ambitious goal the topics covered will include experiences in the use of innovative recording technologies & methods and how to take best advantage to integrate the results obtained to build up new tools and/or experiences as well as improved methodologies for documenting, managing and communicating CH.

The VSMM 2008 joint event will focus on interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research concerning both cutting edge Cultural Heritage Informatics and use of technology for the representation, documentation, preservation, archiving and communication of CH knowledge.
The scope includes every phase of CH information technology: initial data capture/digitization, information/data processing, reconstruction, visualization and documentation as well as dissemination of results to the scientific and cultural heritage communities and to the general public (Multilingua, Multimedia Digital Library).
We are also interested in aspects of the wider legal and ethical esponsibilities of Cultural Heritage Informatics. Research subjects parallel the interests of VSMM, CIPA, ISPRS and EuroMed including culturally significant monuments,
artefacts and sites as well as the activities of museums, libraries, archives, and organizations involved with their care.

Those researchers who wish to participate in this event are invited to submit papers on original and unpublished work addressing the following subjects:

. Data Acquisition Technologies focusing on Photogrammetry and Laserscanning,
. 3D Data Capture and Processing in CH
