Mai postánkból! Köszönet Ludo Engelennek, a HUNAGI közösség számára végzett rendszeres tájékoztatásáért.
(Egyébként jó lenne tudni, mely honi szervezetek tagjai az AGILE-nek és van-e az AGILE kapcsolatoknak magyar felelőse mert ha igen, hasznos lenne az együttműködése a HUNAGI-val, hogy a magyar részvétel erősítése érdekében szervezetünk hatékonyan közre tudjon működni.). Világos, hogy az ismeretek, lehetőségek terjsztése napjainkban nem hogy az egyetemeke és főiskolákon, de aközép- és általános iskolákban kell kezdődjön, természetesen mgfelelő kommunikációs eszközökkel.)
"Dear AGILE members,
This is a reminder for the call for papers for next years’ AGILE Conference which will take place in Leuven, 14-17 May
We want to draw your attention that the guidelines of Springer changed somehow as compared to AGILE 2012. See the AGILE 2013 website for more information.
9 November 2012 is the deadline for submission of full papers for the Springer book.
16th AGILE Conference on Geographic Information Science Geographic Information Science at the Heart of Europe
14-17 May 2013, Leuven, Belgium
On behalf of the AGILE council, we would like to invite you to participate at the 16th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science, scheduled to take place between 14 and 17 May 2013 inLeuven, Belgium, which is situated at the heart of Europe. This years’ conference will pay special attention to the role Geographic Information Science & Technology can play to help resolving the societal challenges we are facing, and to support European policy making in particular.
Call for Papers
The program will offer pre‐conference workshops, keynote sessions, parallel paper presentation sessions and a poster session to share your ideas, and to explore on‐going research & future developments, including state‐of‐the‐art applications. The conference will also allow you to network with other professionals from academia, industry and government who are interested in promoting GI teaching and research activities at the European level.
Potential contributors to this conference are invited to submit:
Full papers: maximum 6000‐words manuscript of original and unpublished scientific research. High‐quality scientific submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and will be published in the series Springer Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography. We especially encourage PhD students to submit full papers. Papers must be written in correct English according to the Springer formatting guidelines.
Short papers: 2000 to 3000‐words manuscript of original and unpublished research work. High‐quality scientific and strategic (industrial and governmental) submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and will be published online as separate proceedings (with separate ISBN number). Papers must be written in correct English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.
Poster submission: 500 to 1000‐words manuscript of original scientific and strategic research work. High‐quality submissions will be accepted for poster presentations at the conference, which will provide the exceptional opportunity to stimulate scientific discussions and exchange novel ideas. Posters proposals must be written in correct English according to the submission template and formatting guidelines.
Note: AGILE 2013 is running a double-blind review process. In preparing your manuscript, do not include any information which could reveal your identity, or that of your co-authors. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author names, email addresses, or affiliation status. In the body of your submission, you should eliminate all direct references to your own previous work. That is, avoid phrases such as "this contribution generalizes our results for XYZ". Also, please do not disproportionately cite your own previous work. In other words, make your submission as anonymous as possible. We need your cooperation in our effort to maintain a fair, double-blind reviewing process.
Authors’ instructions are available on the web site of the conference. All submissions must be sent in electronically via the online conference manager (coming soon).
