GI_Forum 2016 - eine Kurzbilanz

Die Kommission GIScience gemeinsam mit dem Interfakultären Fachbereich Geoinformatik der Universität Salzburg lud vom 5. - 8. Juli 2016 zum jährlich stattfindenden englischsprachigen GI_Forum Symposium in Salzburg.

Der Eröffnungsvortrag durch Prof. Harvey Miller (Ohio State University) zum Thema "Big Data for Healthy Places: How Mobility Data and Open Data Facilitate an Ecological and Evidence-based Approach to Healthier Built Environments" fand besonders hohen Anklang. In der Folge  informierten sich mehr als 1100 TeilnehmerInnen bei ca. 200 Vorträgen, Diskussionsrunden, stimulierenden Panels und 'Special Interest' Foren über Forschung und Entwicklung im Bereich Geoinformatik.


Das GI_Forum ermöglicht die Kommunikation unter Wissenschaftern aus Geoinformatik, Geographic Information Science und verwandten Disziplinen auf hohem fachlichem Niveau. Dies ist auch gesichert durch die 'open access' online Publikation der Beiträge in einem Journal im Verlag der ÖAW.
