Might be of interest.  I'm planning to setup a booth for OSGeo PH and
OSM. Anyone interested to present something?

1st Philippine Geomatics Symposium

*PhilGEOS 2012*
*Philippine Geomatics: practice, applications and accomplishments*





*INVITATION*

* *



            Everyone is invited to the PhilGEOS 2012 to be held on November
22-23, 2012 at the College of Engineering, UP Diliman, Quezon City.



            PhilGEOS 2012  will be the very first symposium on Geomatics in
the Philippines. It is being organized by the Department of Geodetic
Engineering as one of the major activities to commemorate its 75th year
founding anniversary. With support from the Philippine Council for
Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD)
of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), PhilGEOS 2012 is
envisioned to be a major gathering of educators, researchers and the
industry in the field of Geomatics from different parts of the country. It
will be held with the theme “*Philippine Geomatics: practices, applications
and accomplishments*”, and will tackle the following topics:

•  *Geomatics Education*: transitions of surveying and mapping education to
Geomatics; curricula design, implementation and integration in engineering,
environmental science and natural resource management.
•  *Geospatial Technology for Earth Resource Mapping and Assessment*
•  *Geomatics in Disaster Risk Assessment and Mitigation*
•  *Geomatics and the Environment*

            This 2-day event will consist of: (1)  Plenary Sessions and
Discussions, where speakers with vast and solid experience in Geomatics
will speak on various topics focusing on the main symposium theme; (2)
Technical and Poster Sessions, where researches and significant activities
in the field of Geomatics will be presented; and (3) Exhibits, where
government agencies and companies involved in Geomatics will be given
opportunity to showcase their projects and products during the symposium.

            A symposium like the PhilGEOS will be a good venue to
synthesize and publicize the long history of Geomatics practice and
applications in the Philippines and the accomplishments that go along with
it. Geomatics continue to evolve as the technology of gathering and
managing spatial information advances. The symposium will provide a
platform for various sectors involved in Geomatics to gather and exchange
knowledge and gain an insight into the state of the art in the current
technology, techniques and solutions. But most of all, PhilGEOS is aimed to
establish a powerful academic-industry connection, facilitate idea exchange
and encourage research and development in the growing geospatial science
and technology field in the Philippines.

            Let us all gather at the PhilGEOS 2012 to present papers,
discuss technical issues, exchange ideas, and make new connections with
participants from all over the Philippines!

 *CALL FOR ABSTRACTS*

* *

Everyone is invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations
in the parallel technical sessions of PhilGEOS 2012.

Researchers, faculty members, geomatics professionals and practitioners, as
well as undergraduate and graduate students conducting researches and
applying Geomatics in education, resource mapping and assessment, disaster
risk assessment and mitigation environmental management, and related areas
are encouraged to submit abstracts.

Abstracts should have a maximum of 500 words, and as much as possible,
focus on the symposium theme “Philippine Geomatics: practice, applications
and accomplishments”. Each abstract may fall under any of the following
symposium topics:

•    Geomatics Education
•    Geospatial Technology for Earth Resource Mapping and Assessment
•    Geomatics in Disaster Risk Assessment and Mitigation
•    Geomatics and the Environment

All submitted abstracts will be screened by the PhilGEOS Technical Program
Committee.

Abstracts should be submitted online through the Abstract Submission (
http://philgeos2012.wordpress.com/abstract-submission/). Authors who have
successfully submitted their abstracts will receive a e-mail notification.

Abstract Submission Deadline: 31 AUGUST 2012
Notification of Acceptance: 15 SEPTEMBER 2012
