Over the past few decades humans have devised a powerful set of tools for capturing information about the geographic world, that is, the surface and near-surface of the planet in which the vast majority of human activity takes place. The rate of development of these tools continues to accelerate, leading to a host of new and exciting applications. Citizens are now engaged as both producers and consumers of such information. Yet these technologies remain sharply distinct from the ways humans have learned to acquire and reason with personal knowledge of the world around them.
About the speaker
Michael Goodchild is the foremost expert in geographic information science (GIScience), having laid down its foundations in 1992 as the science of collecting, analysing, digitising and using geographic data. GIScience already underpins much of modern life — from satellite navigation systems in cars and town planning to flood prevention and managing disease outbreaks, as well as the emerging ‘Internet of Things’. Advances in technology mean enormous quantities of data are routinely collected. Michael has led research into new techniques for managing and analysing the very large databases that result, and for handling uncertainty in the data. He is also spearheading new ways of mass collection and analysis of geographic data with crowdsourced mapping and citizen science projects.
Amongst many awards recognising the impact of his work, Michael has received the Prix Vautrin Lud — informally known as the ‘Nobel Prize of Geography’ — and the Royal Geographical Society’s Founder’s Medal in 2003. He is a member of both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the US National Academy of Sciences.

Even though the Summit will be the first in Australia, it will carry on a 160-year tradition of inspiring and igniting passion about technology. The World Exposition at London’s Crystal Palace in 1851 gave birth to that tradition, allowing attendees to see technologies they had only dreamed possible a few years earlier, including electric telegraphs, microscopes, the precursor to fax machines, and barometers.

The inaugural Australian Smart Communities Summit will emulate the World Exposition’s vision to bring the marvels of modern technology alive. By attending, you will learn how to take advantage of exciting new technology to benefit your city or communityIn this way the 2016 Smart Communities Summit will provide the first all-inclusive opportunity in Australia to join with other national and international leaders who are at the very forefront of what it takes to become a smart community.
The Summit is set to become the leading Australian event in the smart communities sector thanks in part to a formal partnership being established with the most prestigious international organisation in this sector – the Intelligent Communities Forum.

ISDE 2015: “Towards a One-World Vision for the Blue Planet”
October 6 – 10, 2015
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
We are pleased to invite you to the 9th Symposium of the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, in October of 2015
The Digital Earth vision was first proposed by Al Gore in 1998, and has evolved to keep pace with rapid developments in earth-sensing, cloud computing, and Big Data. The ISDE takes a dynamic view of Digital Earth as the digital nervous system of the globe, using sensor networks and situation-aware systems to inform in real-time about events on or close to the Earth’s surface.
Canada is in the forefront of research and development in the fields of geomatics, geospatial research, and environmental monitoring. Nova Scotia has a large cluster of agencies and institutions related to geomatics, digital technologies, and the environment, with regional and specialist agencies of many government departments, and world-class research at local universities and colleges.
At ISDE 2015 up to 1,000 scientists, engineers, technologists, and environmental managers from around the world will meet to share concepts, research findings, technologies, and practical applications relating to the Digital Earth vision. Our conference will include themes from the entire spectrum of the Digital Earth vision, and will highlight applications related to Nova Scotian expertise in ocean and atmospheric sciences. Our themes are:
1. Digital Earth Concepts, Technologies, Infrastructure
Concepts, hardware, and software for transmitting, storing, and analyzing geographic information.
2. Earth Observation & Monitoring
Observation systems for collecting, monitoring, and managing data of global and regional environmental conditions, resources, and hazards.
3. Managing The Blue Planet
Multi-disciplinary methods to forecast and adapt to environmental change, mitigate natural hazards, and support sustainable development.
4. Digital Earth & The Citizen
Innovative technologies to encourage citizen involvement in global monitoring and environmental sustainability, and policies to minimize their intrusive effects.
5. Digital Earth Education & Outreach
The Symposium will publicize the Digital Earth vision and capabilities to the public at-large, and particularly to youth.
The conference venue will be the Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre, in downtown Halifax. This 3-floor facility offers comprehensive services and excellent catering in a central location close to restaurants, pubs, and shopping. The heart of Halifax has more than 3500 hotel rooms, with many conveniently connected to our meeting venue by an enclosed pedway system.
Please mark your calendar for October 6 - 10, 2015 and plan to join us in this beautiful city for this world-class conference. Check back to our website (http://isde2015halifax.ca) regularly for updates, or contact our conference organizers at ISDE2015@agendamanagers.com with any specific questions.
We look forward to hosting you in 2015!
