The Geoinformatics Research Days event is the annual gathering for geoinformatics experts in Finland, which has been arranged by the member universities of the Finnish University Network for Geoinformatics (Fiuginet) for over 10 years.

Traditionally, the Research Days have been a relatively small-scale event with mostly invited programme. However, in 2023 Fiuginet made the decision to develop the event into a scientific conference, and therefore we are proud to announce the Call for papers for Geoinformatics Research Days 2024. The event will take place on May 20-21st, 2024 and will be organized by Aalto University together with the Fiuginet network, hosted in Espoo, Finland. The event is held together with the ICA Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualisation with targeted sessions and their members are also warmly welcome.

We invite researchers, practitioners, and experts from academia, industry, and government sectors both in Finland and abroad to submit their research contributions for presentation during the Geoinformatics Research Days 2024. The conference will cover a broad spectrum of topics related to Geoinformatics, including but not limited to:

  1. Geospatial Data Acquisition and Processing

  2. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing

  3. Spatial Data Analysis and Visualization

  4. Geospatial Algorithms and Modeling

  5. User Cognition in Geospatial Applications

  6. Geoinformatic Human-Computer Interaction

  7. Location-Based Services and Geographic Information Retrieval

  8. Big Data Analytics for Geospatial Applications

  9. Spatial Data Infrastructures and Interoperability

  10. Geoinformatics for Smart Cities and Urban Planning

  11. Environmental Monitoring and Geospatial Solutions

  12. Geoinformatics for Sustainable Development

  13. Geospatial AI and Machine Learning Applications

  14. Open Geospatial Science and Open Source Software

  15. Papers aimed at the programme related to the ICA Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization

Your participation in the Geoinformatics Research Days 2024 will make a significant contributions, foster collaboration, and shape the future of Geoinformatics. Together, let’s advance the understanding and application of geospatial technologies for a more sustainable and interconnected world.
