The 5th International Conference on Geoinformation Technologies for Natural Disaster Management (GiT4NDM 2013) will be jointly organized by the Waterloo Institute for Disaster Management (WIDM) and Dewey College in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada from October 9 to 11, 2013. This three-day event including one day social tour is co-sponsored by the International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Mapping from Remote Sensor Imagery, the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) Joint Working Group on 0.2.1 on New Technologies for Disaster Monitoring and Management, the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group I/6 on Mobile Scanning and Imaging Systems, the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) Working Group 4.4 on Maritime and Marine Spatial Information Management and the International Association of Geo-information & Communication Technology (AGeoICT) Working Group on Geomatics for Disaster Management. The goal of the conference is to contribute the recent knowledge among the local and international participants in both geomatics community and disaster management community. GiT4NDM 2013 aims at bringing together academics, researchers, scientists, industrialists, politicians and practitioners. The conference will provide a platform to discuss recent technical advancements and innovations in geospatial information and communication technologies as well as their innovative applications in disaster management. The theme for GiT4NDM 2013 event is “Save the Earth with Informed Solutions”. This two-day event will consist of keynote sessions, parallel technical sessions, panel sessions, and an industrial/educational exhibition.
In addition, we have a pre-conference workshop on Open Source Hands-on GIS workshop for Disaster management using QGIS and GRASS on October 8, 2013 by Prof. Scott Madry from the University of North Carolina, USA.
