ISDE Symposium & Locate17 Conference
The International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), founded in Beijing in 2006, is a non-political, non-governmental and not-for-profit international organization principally promoting academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration towards Digital Earth.
ISDE also explores Digital Earth as an enabling technology to play key roles in economic and social sustainable development, environmental protection, disaster mitigation, natural resources conservation and improvement of living standards.
The Locate Conference (Locate17) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of theSurveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA).
The joint conference will be held 03-06 April 2016 at the new International Conference Centre Sydney.
Locate17 is open to all industries and welcomes the ongoing discussion of how technology developed within the spatial and surveying communities can be used to improve the way we work, live and play in smarter societies.
The Locate Conference (Locate16) is the national conference of the spatial and surveying industries of Australia and New Zealand. The event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) and will be held 12-14 April 2016 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Locate16 is open to all industries and welcomes the ongoing discussion of how technology developed within the spatial and surveying communities can be used to improve the way we work, live and play in smarter societies.
The Conference program will focus on how the spatial and surveying industries are essential to our prosperity, protection, sustainability and ability to grow (build).
- PROSPER Stream
Our long-term prosperity depends upon globally competitive industries. Spatial technology and location information drive down business costs and provide new opportunities for growth in food and agribusiness, mining and resources, energy, manufacturing and health.
- PROTECT Stream
Significant financial and social costs are borne by our increasingly urbanised society when disaster strikes. The safety our communities continue to depend heavily on the effective use of spatial technology and location information by emergency services, transport safety, the insurance industry, defence, health and utilities.
- SUSTAIN Stream
We seek to end poverty and war, take action on climate change, manage our unique landscapes sustainably, and have secure and affordable access to water and energy. The achievement of this global agenda cannot be realised without the continued application of spatial technology and location information.
- BUILD Stream
Our society cannot function without spaces in which to live, work and play, nor without essential supporting water, sewerage, energy, and transport infrastructure. Building Information Modelling and 3D cadastres reduce costs, provide greater certainty and improve the quality of asset construction and management.
- RESEARCH@LOCATE Stream
Research@Locate is the academic research stream of Locate, organised by the Research@Locate16 committee.Research@Locate’s carefully selected presentations and peer-reviewed short papers will showcase the latest research advances from researchers at all stages of their career, and from across the breadth of fundamental and applied spatial sciences. Research@Locate makes available its papers in the form of an annual, open-access proceedings, available here.
The Exhibition (Market Day) is designed to introduce the latest technology and services of the spatial and surveying industries to end-users; encourage networking for greater collaboration amongst organisations; and provide an opportunity for educators, students and the public to meet professionals working in the industry.
The Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards (APSEA) will be held during Locate16 and celebrates the achievements of our industries over the past year with awards delivered by the host organisations: SIBA, SSSI, and GITA.
