GEOINFO 2015 : Brazilian Symposium on Geoinformatics
Conference Series : Brazilian Symposium on GeoInformatics
Call For Papers
Call for Papers
The GEOINFO series (Brazilian Symposium on Geoinformatics) is an annual conference for exploring ongoing research, development and innovative applications on geographic information science and related areas.
Papers should describe original research. Ongoing or recently completed works are welcome. All the submissions will be reviewed by an international scientific committee.
Special edition in Journal
Selected full papers will be published in a special edition of the Brazilian Journal of Cartography (RBC). RBC is a traditional open access journal that have been published six times a year, for more than 40 years. It is sponsored by the Brazilian Society of Cartography, Geodesy, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (SBC), focusing on Cartography, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Geodesy, and related areas.
More about RBC at http://www.lsie.unb.br/rbc/index.php/rbc.
Authors of other selected full papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Journal of Information and Data Management (JIDM). JIDM is an electronic journal that is published three times a year. It is sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), focusing on information and data management in large repositories and document collections. It relates to different areas of Computer Science, including databases, information retrieval, digital libraries, knowledge discovery, data mining and geographical information systems.
