Dear friends,
Please find the call for paper of AgriGIS workshop enclosed. Below is
our announcement to ICA email list, some (or most of you) may receive
that via this list. Sorry for cross posting.


Dr. Tuong Thuy Vu
Assistant Professor
School of Geography, University of Nottingham, Malaysia campus
Tel. 603 8924 8757

The University of Nottingham and Crops for the Future Research Centre
(CFFRC)  are pleased to announce AgriGIS 2012 - Advancing Geospatial
Technologies in Agricultural Research on 10th May 2012 at University
of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC), Malaysia.

The AgriGIS 2012 workshop will focus on state-of-art use of
geo-information and geospatial technologies in agricultural research
and practice, and highlight current developments and experiences with
an aim to:

•             bring together industry, academic and private and public
sector researchers with relevant expertise in both geospatial
technologies and agriculture to exchange knowledge on strategies for
AgriGIS research

•             understand current developments in use of geospatial
technologies in agricultural research

•             demonstrate current work at the University of Nottingham
in this theme, in particular the GRASP prototype

•             provide a platform to network and develop ideas for
future collaborative work in AgriGIS

•             act as a focus for AgriGIS research and development and
plan proposals and strategies to secure funding for a future road map.

Contributions of abstracts are invited (but not limited to) the
following topic areas:

•             AgriGIS examples and workflows for earth observation
through satellite-based remote sensing and airborne sensors

•             AgriGIS usecases and workflows through in situ sensors

•             Grid computing for AgriGIS

•             Cloud computing for earth observation systems and AgriGIS

•             Open source systems for AgriGIS

•             Case studies of implementations

Workshop Chairs:

Prof. Sayed Azam Ali (CEO, Crops for the Future Research Centre, Malaysia)

Dr Tuong Thuy Vu (Head of Open-Source Geospatial Lab, UNMC , Malaysia)

Please submit your abstracts (maximum 1200 words) by email to Dr Tuong
Thuy Vu ([hidden email] )

Abstracts Submission deadline: 15th March 2012

CFFRC is a joint venture between the Government of Malaysia and the
University of Nottingham and is hosted in Malaysia by The University
of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. CFFRC is the first international
research institution dedicated to the study of underutilised plants
for food and non-food uses. Details

Open Source Geospatial Lab , Malaysia has been established in UNMC
with the aim to help create collaboration opportunities for academia,
industry and government organisations in open source GIS which will
help to create a sustainable environment for open source GIS in
Malaysia. Details at http://www.osgeo.org/node/1230

For more information on the workshop please contact the workshop chair
Dr Tuong Thuy Vu.

The larger vision of the workshop is to establish strong AgriGIS
research theme at UoN bringing together colleagues from all
disciplines interested in this theme in the future. If you are
interested in research collaborations in AgriGIS please email me.

Best wishes,


PS:  As per the ICA-OSGeo MoU , I am now in the process of building
research collaborations with key Universities and research
organisations worldwide for the establishment of Open Source
Geospatial Research Laboratories and Research Centres for development
of open-source geospatial software technologies, training, expertise
and building up momentum in Open Source GIS education and research
worldwide. If you are interested in this initiative please email
