GIS in Central Asia Conference - Call for Contributions

From Jan 1, 2010 the GISCA Call for Papers and conference registration will be open - further details are available from http://gisca10.aca-giscience.org/!
This annual conference is focused on GIS applications across all domains with a link to or relevance for the Central Asian region. Conference secretary Dr. Akylbek Chymyrov points out that "the 2010 conference theme 'Water: Life, Risk, Energy and Landuse' essentially summarizes many of the problems Central Asia today is facing, and GISCA 2010 is striving to make significant contributions to resolving or at least mitigating these problems".
GIS experts, public officials, industry representatives and academics will again converge at Bishkek (Kyrgyz Republic) at this now well established regional platform for communication, learning and collaboration!
