AGSE 2013: The Geospatial Momentum for Society and Environment

An interdisciplinary, international forum for sharing knowledge about the application of Geoinformatics with focus on application and on developing countries.

AGSE 2013, "The Geospatial Momentum for Society and Environment", took place at 16-19 December, 2013, Center for Environmental Planning and Technology University (CEPT University), Ahmedabad, India, chaired by Prof Dr Anjana Vyas, Dean, FGSA, CEPT University, and Prof. Dr. Franz-Josef Behr, Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences. The conference attracted more than 120 delegates. On the first day the following keynotes were given:

  • Future Perspectives of Microwave Imaging with Application to Multi-Parameter Fully Polarimetric POLSAR Remote Sensing and Geophysical Stress-Change Monitoring (Prof. W-M Boerner, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago (USA), IEEE-GRSS Asia Pacific Liaison)
  • Geodata for Humanitarian Affairs in UN Organisations(Prof. Dr. Franz-Josef Behr, Professor, Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Germany)
  • Urban Governance in Era of Technology Adcancement (Dr. P. K. Ghosh, IAS (re'd))

Call for participation

The international conference on "Geospatial Momentum for Society and Environment" is the 6th event in a series of AGSE. The event, organized in collaboration with Stuttgart University and CEPT University, will be held in Ahmedabad, India in December 2013.

With the aim of bringing together scientists, researchers, academia, developers, users, and practitioners under single umbrella, the first in this series of conferences was held in 2008 and discussed the advancement in geospatial technology and GIscience. A further focus of the event was to foster interdisciplinary talks on all aspects of geographic information systems. By organising such conferences and workshops, as well as publishing papers, the AGSE seek to advance science and technology in Remote Sensing, Geoscience, Applied Science, and related fields.. The dissemination of useful application in Geospatial technology leading to a better environment is also part of its mission.

The AGSE 2013 offers an excellent opportunity for the experts in the field by hosting an international conference on the theme "Geospatial Momentum for Society and Environment". The location of the event further augments this opportunity as Ahmedabad is one of the fastest developing and growing cities in India. ,Known for its vibrancy and an attitude of celebrating life along with its spirit of entrepreneurship, the city has a fast expanding centre of education, information technology and scientific industries; Ahmedabad remains the cultural and commercial heart of Gujarat.

This conference will be of immense value to the GIS community. We invite you to participate and explore the potential of geospatial technology and learn how GIS acts as a positive force for governments, society and industry providing support in a wide range of topics including planning, development, utility and resource management, transportation, safety and emergency response, research and analysis.
