- Call for Papers*- GIS/EM4 (Second Circular - Revised due date)
4th International Conference on Integrating
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Environmental Modeling
September 2-8, 2000: The Banff Centre for Conferences, Banff, Alberta, Canada
Sponsors to-date: NSF, NCGIA, NASA, USFS, EPA, NOAA, USGS, USACE/DOD, NRCS
WARNING: DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS MESSAGE. RESPOND ONLY TO http://www.colorado.edu/research/cires/banff OR gisem4@... AS INSTRUCTED BELOW.
*Abstracts are invited for book chapters, journal articles, tutorials or workshops, method/technique/ tool demonstrations, and electronic or static "poster" presentations contributing to the 4th International Conference on Integrating GIS and Environmental Modeling. The meeting will be held in dedicated, full service facilities at The Banff Centre for Conferences in Banff, Alberta, Canada, September 2-8, 2000. Self-explanatory abstracts in English should be 1-2 pages in length and must include title, author (s), institutional affiliation (s), explanation of completed work to be described, and 5-10 author-assigned key words. Clear relevance must be shown to predictive, numerical modeling approaches to environmental problem solving. A special conference theme will be human-environment interactions, and the role that GIS and modeling have in their improved understanding and prediction.
The forum will retain its cross-disciplinary, pan-scientific, and problem solving emphases consistent with a concern for better integrated understanding of complex whole systems, their integrity and sustained functioning, and particularly (but not exclusively) their interactions with human activity. Spatial, statistical, temporal, and other methodological considerations are expected to be given balanced treatment with issues of science theory, new data sources and sensors, computing technologies, and application techniques.
Abstracts should be submitted no later than 5:00 pm (Pacific Standard Time) on December 17, 1999 (extended from Nov. 19) via a web-active form available on the conference web page at http://www.colorado.edu/research/cires/banff/.
