20th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science: the impact of geo-innovations on societal issues

Date: 09 May 2017 - 12 May 2017
Location: Wageningen

The program will offer parallel paper presentation sessions, keynote sessions, poster sessions and pre-conference workshops to share your ideas, explore on-going research, future developments, including state-of-the-art applications, and to network with the professionals from academia, industry, and government who are interested in promoting GI teaching and research activities among GI laboratories at the European level.

Societal geo-innovation is the theme for the 20th AGILE conference. Twenty years is an impressive time span in a rapidly changing society. The conference is a great event to discuss the embedding of geo-information in society: What has been the societal impact of geo-innovations over the past 20 years? What state-of-the art geo-information science topics will boost societal changes within the nearest future?

Contributors are invited to submit papers and abstracts on all topics within the fields of Geographic Information Science. However since the theme is Societal Geo-Innovation and since we celebrate the 20th conference five sessions are organised that pay special attention to developments and applications that contribute to the first 5 goals of the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations. These are:

  1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  4. Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning
  5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Contributors are specially invited to contribute to these sessions. We would also be interested in papers dedicated to the impact of 20 years of geo research.
