GI-Days 2007
Young Researchers Forum
September 10-12, 2007

Münster, Germany


GI-Days 2007 will provide a platform for young researchers worldwide to
present their work from all sectors of geographic information science.
The range of topics will be comparable to the well established series
of GIScience conferences, focusing on emerging topics and basic
research findings.

GI-Days 2007 will bring together young researchers from the field of
geographic information science. We encourage PhD and Master students
as well as post-docs to submit papers. Participants of GI-Days 2007
will learn about the diversity of currently ongoing research projects
and receive feedback on their research in a constructive and
international atmosphere.

Short papers (max 1000 words) can be submitted to present research
results, visionary ideas and work in progress. All papers will be
reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Papers must
be written and presented in English. All accepted papers will be
published in the ifgiPrints series (with ISBN).

We invite you to be part of the up-and-coming generation of geographic
information scientists meeting at GI-Days 2007.

Possible topics include, but are not restricted to:

* Spatial data infrastructures
