If you want to actively shape the programme of the ISDE12 in Salzburg, we are happy to receive your contributions. The Call for Sessions will be announced soon.
The Digital Earth research agenda has been diverse, covering issues of technology and society. This conference has a clear concept to tackle the grand challenges and to structure the programme:
First, we need to contribute to a better understanding of the nature of the Earth’s surface, to identify tractable pathways for sustainable and equitable environments. All applications and best practice examples will be organized around the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The conference will be different from traditional conferences by emphasizing short and interactive formats, paired with high-level keynote presentations. And, it will be the place for coming up with solutions!
Please find below a first draft of a session concept.
