AGILE Conference 2020
June 16 - June 19
The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE) has held annual conferences focused on Geographical Information Science for more than two decades.
The 23rd AGILE conference will be held in Chania, Crete, Greece on 16-19 June, 2020. The theme of the conference is Geospatial Technologies: seeding the future.
The main topics for the 2020 conference include, among others: Space informatics, Big Spatial Data, Analysis and Visualization, Interoperability with Aerial and Satellite Platforms, Volunteered Geographic Information and Community Observatories, Socio-Economic Impact Assessment of GI, deep learning applications, disruptive GI technologies, as well as GIScience and Technology Education and Training. Contributors are encouraged to propose new themes, both for presentations and for workshops.
AGILE seeks to ensure that new perspectives on teaching and research in geographic information science are fully represented at the conference to help shape the future European research agenda in this field. This is also aligned with our conference theme, Geospatial Technologies: seeding the future, that emphasizes an interest in the development of novel solutions, modern data retrieval platforms and social integration according to the challenges that arise in our changing planet. In addition, we need to maximise the potential and synergies of modern data retrieval platforms such as unmanned remotely operating systems and operational satellite constellation such as Copernicus Sentinels for maximizing the investments made by both geospatial and Earth observation communities.
