GIS-IDEAS 2024 will be held at University of Phayao, Chiang Rai Campus (TH) , 11-13 Dec. 2024

The International Conference on GeoInformatics for Spatial-Infrastructure Development in Earth & Allied Sciences (GIS-IDEAS) provides a platform for sharing of knowledge and valuable experiences and help promote collaborations and scientific exchanges between not only between students, researchers and practitioners Japan, Vietnam and Thailand but also our other colleagues involved in developing and promoting GeoInformatics technologies. The conduct of GIS-IDEAS Conferences is based on the spirit of mutual cooperation and openness.

GIS-IDEAS is planned around a central theme which is decided in consultation with the host institution.  Apart from Technical Sessions on GeoInformatics technologies and applications, Special sessions on different topics related to Geo-informatics are also held during the conference.

The next GIS-IDEAS Conference is scheduled to take place at in the last quarter of 2024.  This will be the 12th conference in the GIS-IDEAS conference series which are being hosted from 2002 and held once in two years.

GIS-IDEAS is organized in collaboration with premier institutes located in Asia. GIS-IDEAS which was founded in 2002 to develop and promote Geoinformatics applications and foster cooperation in application of Information and Communication Technologies to problems and issues related to our natural and social environment. To achieve these aims, the conference aims to;

  • support capacity building through organization of symposia, workshops and fieldwork.
  • share information resources and know-how in Geoinformatics
  • promote research collaborations and joint research in Geoinformatics
  • promote exchange of information and academic publications
  • develop a human resource network to support development and growth of Geoinformatics

Previous GIS-IDEAS Conferences were organized in collaboration with premier institutions like Can Tho University (VN), Danang University of Education (VN), Japan Geotechnical Consultant Association (JP), Japan Society of Geoinformatics (JP), Hanoi University of Mining and Geology (VN), Hanoi University of Natural Resources & Environment (VN), Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (VN), Kyoto University (JP), Naresuan University (TH), Osaka City University (JP) , Osaka Metropolitan University (JP), Vietnam National University (VN) and others .
