GEOBIA, the 2nd International Conference on Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis is scheduled to be held from August, 6-7, 2008 Alberta, Canada. GEOBIA is a recent sub-discipline of Geographic Information Science devoted to developing semi-automated methods to partition remote sensing imagery into meaningful image-objects, and assessing their characteristics through spatial, spectral and temporal scales. Its applications range from agriculture and natural resource management, to national defense and global climate change. Its economic impact spans from data collection, hardware and software vendors, developers and users, to recipients of sound sustainable environmental policy.
GEOBIA 2008 will be held at the University of Calgary (UofC), Alberta, Canada August, 6-7, 2008. This event is being co-organised in partnership with the Canadian Space Agency, the ASPRS and the ISPRS.
The Organization committee is lead by Dr Geoffrey Hay (Geography, UofC) with Co-Chairs Dr Thomas Blaschke (Z_GIS: Austria), and Dr Danielle Marceau (Geomatics Engineering, UofC). The scientific committee includes ten Remote Sensing and GIS experts from academia, government and industry working throughout North-America and Europe.
As a part of the conference the organising committee is inviting researchers to submit an abstract of up to 350 words before January 21, 2008 through the GEOBIA, 2008 conference on-line system. For more details and guidelines on submitting the abstracts visit this link

Network of Young Researchers in GISc
The young researcher forum for Geographic Information Science aims to help participants of the GI-Days 2007 and other young researchers in field to stay in contact. The forums can be used to discuss current trends in GIScience, to get in contact with other researchers in the field, and to discuss problems and ideas regarding your ongoing (PhD) projects.
