The 16th International Conference on Geocomputation will be held in a hybrid format. We invite submitted papers and extended abstracts on research within the broad geocomputation scope. We also invite submissions for themed sessions within the conference and workshops to run on the first scheduled day.
The GeoComputation conference has the following aims:
- Attract researchers and presenters of international standing
- Facilitate global networking between institutions and individuals
- Promote active collaboration amongst workers from diverse parent disciplines
- Create an international focus for current state-of-the-art research
- Provide a mechanism for disseminating the latest innovations and discoveries
- Highlight the benefits and limitations of new computational techniques
- Act as a constructive forum for inter-disciplinary discussion of research ideas
- Generate a framework that allows newcomers to see their work in an international context
- Indicate fruitful directions for further research
Geocomputation ’21 goes Hybrid!
To accommodate attendees who would like to gather in-person, Geocomputation ’21 is transitioning to a hybrid conference format where speakers and audience members can attend sessions either virtually or in-person. For more information on the hotel see “Venue” on the main menu.
