The Austria-Central Asia Centre for GIScience, together with Tempus GE-UZ, TIIM and the Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS), University of Salzburg are proud to announce the:

GIS-in-Central-Asia Conference - GISCA 2015

The main objectives of this English language conference are to bring together GIS academics, researchers and practitioners in the Central Asian countries and encourage international cooperation and knowledge exchange in GIS education.

In 2015, GISCA is focused on the theme of "Geospatial Management of Land, Water and Resources". GIScience as a conceptual foundation, Geoinformatics as a methodology and GIS as software are powerful instruments for linking information from different sources by location. This is exactly what is needed to manage our environments and natural resources, and to assess risks arising from natural, technical and social factors.

Key themes of the conference are:
  • GIS for Environmental Management 
  • GIS for Water Management
  • GIS for Disaster and Emergency Management 
  • GIS for Regional Sustainable Development
  • GIS for Natural and Cultural Heritage Preservation
  • GIS for Business and Logistics
  • GIS for Public Health 
  • New Trends and Technologies in Surveying, Cadastre and Land Management  
  • GIS and Ecosystem Modeling 
  • Education programmes in Geoinformatics 
  • International networking in teaching and use of GIS technologies 
  • Development of Spatial Data Infrastructures
  • Remote Sensing Applications
