The GI_Forum provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds in an ongoing effort to support the creation of an informed GISociety. Bearing in mind different perspectives from a variety of professions, presentations, workshops and exhibitions will concentrate on innovations in education, science and technologies, in the spatial domain and their possible contribution to a more just, ethical and sustainable society.
The GI_Forum will be hosted at the University of Salzburg on July 3-6 2018. Prominent keynote speakers will highlight new developments, offer insights into trends and visions while there will be a Young Researchers’ Corner for more individualized interaction with young researchers. Among the workshops and sessions in this event will be a DARIAH-EU Workshop chaired by Eveline Wandl-Vogt, Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), Austria. This workshop on “DARIAH-EU: Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities” will be an introduction to the role of research infrastructures in geohumanities, featuring geospatial research questions and geospatial challenges that DARIAH-EU and its related projects are dealing with.
