The GeoMundus Conference is an international Geoinformatics and Geospatial Technologies conference organized by students for students. It is hosted by the students of the Erasmus Mundus Master's program in Geospatial Technologies, https://mastergeotech.info. Since 2009, the GeoMundus conference has been hosted annually - alternating between the program’s organizing universities- NOVA IMS (Lisbon, Portugal), WWU (Münster, Germany) and UJI (Castellón de la Plana, Spain). This year, the 15th edition of the conference will be held at the Universitat Jaume I, Castellón de la Plana, Spain. This conference is free of charge.
The approach of students organizing a conference for students is quite unique. However, the participants include experts, researchers, professionals, policymakers, and the general public. Anyone who is curious or enthusiastic about geospatial technologies and their applications can participate in this conference! It is a fantastic opportunity to engage with this exciting and fast-growing field and to network with a diverse group of people at the cutting edge.
As students and members of the geospatial community, we want to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of experts, students, researchers, policymakers and professionals to critically discuss the crucial role of the increasingly abundant and improved geospatial data and rapidly advancing geospatial technologies in accelerating the efforts towards a sustainable future.
The 15th edition will be in-person attendance.
This year’s conference will feature keynote speakers, workshops, paper and poster presentations, career development, and networking events. Past keynotes have included illustrious names from Geospatial space such as Dr. Michael Goodchild, Dr. Werner Kuhn, and John Nelson.
Apart from the general theme of Geoinformatics and Geospatial Technologies, each new conference edition
additionally highlights a specific focus topic in dedicated conference slots.
This year's conference will focus on Geospatial Intelligence for a Sustainable Future. As the
world is gradually approaching the deadline for achieving the 17 sets of Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs) defined by the United Nations (UN) to guide countries to sustainable futures,
we are keen to know how geospatial data and technologies have been contributing to achieving and
monitoring the progress of these global goals.
This conference will allow researchers, academics, students, policymakers, and professionals to share
their latest research, activities and perspectives on the roles that
geospatial information and technologies are playing in the efforts to accomplish these SDGs. Also, it
will provoke discussions on how we can speed up the progress of fulfilling the SDGs
by leveraging big Earth observation (EO) data and the rapidly advancing geospatial technologies to
address several challenges, such as climate change, disasters, food insecurity, and conflicts, which are
hindering the realization of the SDGs.
This will promote multi-disciplinary insights from participants on topics that cover Geoinformatics and
Geospatial Technologies and various aspects of sustainable development such as (but not limited to):
- Environmental monitoring and modelling
- Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture
- Climate Resilience and Disaster Management
- Land Tenure Security and Land Economy
- Conflict management
- Urban Management, Smart Cities and Renewable Energy
- Ecosystem Management and Biodiversity Conservation
