INSPIRE Conference 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey

Call for papers

The INSPIRE Conference 2012 will be held in June 23-27, 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey.
The theme of this year's edition is "Sharing Environmental Information, Sharing Innovation".

With the introduction of the INSPIRE Directive 2007/2, the policy landscape for sharing environmental information has changed drastically. The Commission Communication on the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS 2008) and follow-up activities at national and European levels have further helped to cultivate a new vision for a coordinated framework for the implementation and monitoring of environmental policies. The governance, content, and supporting technologies are the three pillars with which this vision can be consolidated and implemented.

The aim of this year's INSPIRE Conference is therefore to look at how innovations in these three areas have further shaped the landscape of sharing environmental information. The technical program will feature keynote addresses, workshops, panels in addition to presentations  and posters. The call for contributions reflects the three pillars: Governance, Content and Technologies. In particular, as 2012 is the European Year for Water, the ISPIRE Team is interested in receiving submissions relating to Water (Water Framework Directive, Plan Bleu, EEA Water Watch, Blue Carbon…)

March 2, 2012: Deadline for submitting paper and workshops proposals
March 16 2012: Deadline for submitting poster proposals
April 30, 2012: Deadline for Early Registration fee
May 31, 2012: Deadline for full papers to be submitted for peer review for IJSDIR
