CoastGIS 2011

Event Type Conference
Date(s)(yyyy-mm-dd) Start: 2011-09-05 - End: 2011-09-08
Location UNESCO/IOC Project Office for IODE, UNESCO/IOC Project Office for IODE Wandelaarkaai 7 - Pakhuis 61, Oostende, Belgium
Summary Focus of the CoastGIS Conferences has expanded beyond technology and applications alone, to now encompass a wider range of subjects, including for example data access and sharing policies, information infrastructures, planning and socio-economic issues. However, papers selected for presentation at the conferences should still focus on how information and communications technologies (ICT) aid marine and coastal zone researchers, managers, government planners and decision makers – and the public – in better understanding and managing their fragile coastal resources in a sustainable manner. With that in mind, the following themes have been proposed for CoastGIS 2011. Technology Themes: * Applying Geospatial Data Interoperability Standards (to improve Data Sharing) * Advances in Remote Sensing, Earth Observation and Imagery Processing and Management * New Sensors & Sensor Webs (in the coastal and marine environments) * Advanced Visualisation Tools and Technologies * Mobile GIS in the Marine Environment * “IT at Sea” – Advances in Hydrographic Survey Techniques, Tools and Technology * Open Source GIS for Coastal/Marine Applications ICZM Methods and Applications: * Management Tools for Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) * Exploring and Managing Marine Boundaries Issues * Advances in Decision Support Systems (DSS) for ICZM * Modelling Coastal Processes * Managing Risks in Coastal Environments Thematic Areas: * Impact of Climate Change on the Coast, Coastal Communities & Marine Resources * Environmental Conservation in the Coastal Zone * Pollution Monitoring and Control * Sustainable Use of Coastal Resources * Integrating Coastal and River Basin Catchment Data * Disaster Monitoring and Mitigation at the Coast * Informing and Involving the Public in Coastal Decision Making * Planning for Sustainable Coastal Tourism * Coastal Planning and Management for Small Islands * Protecting Coastal Heritage Non-Technical Themes: * Coastal/Marine Spatial Data Infrastructures (including Data Access and Sharing Policies) * Marine Spatial Planning and Monitoring * Socio-economic Issues Affecting Coastal Communities * Public Participation GIS (PPGIS) for Coastal Communities (Best Practice Examples) * IT in Education & Training for Coastal Zone Researchers and Managers (e-Learning and the Internet) REGISTER ON HTTP://WWW.COASTGIS.INFO
