The local organizating committee for GeoInformatics 2009 welcomes your participation in the 17th international conference on Geoinformatics for GIScience professionals.

The International Conference on Geoinformatics is a well-known annual forum for Geospatial Information Science Professionals. The first was held in Buffalo in 1992, following by Beijing in 1993, Calgary in 1994, Hong Kong in 1995, West Palm Beach in 1996, Taipei in 1997, Beijing in 1998, Ann Arbor in 1999, Monterey in 2000, Bangkok in 200), Nanjing in 2002, Toronto in 2003 (cancelled due to SARS), Gavle of Sweden in 2004, Toronto in 2005, Wuhan in 2006, Nanjing in 2007, and Guangzhou in 2008.

The 17th conference will be in Fairfax, Virginia, USA, in Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area. We hope it provides an opportunity for all professionals involved in GIS, GPS, and RS research and development to discuss new ways to advance the theory, technology, and applications of GIScience.

The accepted papers will be presented or posted in the conference and published in the EI-indexed IEEE eXplore. Selected papers will be published in special issues of SCI-indexed journals.
