The 5th GIS-focused algorithm competition, GISCUP 2016, co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2016!!Dates: October 31-November 3, 2016 Location: San Francisco, CA, USA
ACM SIGSPATIAL hosts an annual algorithm contest with the goal of encouraging innovation in a fun way. The winners will be announced at the ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS conference in November 2016. Contest participants will submit original computer programs to be evaluated by the contest organizers on a common dataset.
This year’s contest will focus on applying spatial statistics to spatio-temporal big data in order to identify statistically significant
hot spots using a distributed computing framework and functional programming languages. With the advent of the ubiquitous collection of spatio-temporal observational data (e.g., vehicle tracking data), the identification of unusual patterns of data in a statistically significant manner has become a key problem that numerous businesses and organizations are attempting to solve. This year’s SIGPSPATIAL Cup addresses this significant programming challenge.
First ACM SIGSPATIAL Student Research Competition (SRC)co-located with ACM SIGSPATIAL GIS 2016October 31-November 3, 2016, San Francisco, CA, USAhttp://sigspatial2016.sigspatial.org/competition/Call for SubmissionsFor the first time, the ACM SIGSPATIAL 2016 will host the SIGSPATIAL ACM Student Research Competition (SRC). SRC allows undergraduate and graduate students to share their research results and exchange ideas with other students, judges, and conference attendees; understand the practical applications of their research; perfect their communication skills; and receive prizes and gain recognition from ACM and the greater computing community.* GuidelinesThe Student Research Competition is open to graduate (only one author) and undergraduate (up to two authors per contribution) student members whose submissions are accepted by the SRC committee. SRC submissions should describe recent research conducted primarily by students or a recent development that involves a substantial amount of work achieved primarily by students. To be considered, complete a submission of an extended abstract of a topic of interest to the ACM SIGSPATIAL conference (please check the main conference CFP for relevant topics) and indicate the level of the participation (undergraduate or graduate). Valid ACM student membership and student status enrollment as of the submission deadline are required for the lead student.* AwardsSelected competitors by the SRC committee will receive up to $500 USD for their conference travel, depending on need. Winners from each category will advance to the SRC Grand Finals, where winners from various ACM SIGs are evaluated to nominate the ACM-wide SRC winners. The winners of the Grand Finals will be recognized at the Annual ACM Awards Banquet, the same banquet that also recognizes the Turing Award winners.* SponsorsThe SRC competition is fully sponsored by a generous donation from Microsoft Research.* Submission InstructionsEach submission should include the author(s)' name(s), affiliations, email addresses, research advisors' names, ACM student member number, SRC category (undergraduate or graduate), and an extended abstract of no more than two pages in the conference template. The SRC submission should not have been published before or under concurrent submission to another venue/SIGSPATIAL track. Please submit your papers through the EasyChair system at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acmsigspatial16src* Important DatesSubmission Deadline: August 25, 2016.Notification of Acceptance: September 20, 2016.* ContactFor more information about the SRC competition, please contact the SRC Chair Moustafa Youssef at email@example.com -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Follow ACMGIS @LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=4162155Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1450681355222657/Twitter: https://twitter.com/sigspatial_gis
Architects, planners, designers, geographers, and landscape architects are invited to the Geodesign Summit Europe to discuss how this new way of design can help to mitigate the challenges as our world continues to change in unprecedented ways.
Join us for our annual Be Inspired program—where the most innovative infrastructure projects of 2016 are presented by their project leads and then celebrated at the Be Inspired Awards gala. Hear the Bentley executive keynote and technology update, thought-provoking guest keynotes, and your choice of sessions from five individual industry forums. The Year in Infrastructure Conference is where future infrastructure delivery best practices are shaped every year.
In November 2016 the HYDRO conference and exhibition takes place again in Rostock-Warnemünde. You may still have good memories on HYDRO 2010 which was held at the same place. The organisation committee, which is almost the same as in 2010, already started with enthusiasm and new ideas to prepare next year's event.
The hydrographic conference HYDRO 2016 is organized by the German Hydrographic Society (DHyG) on behalf of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS).
The industry is full of organizations that have had to “redo” parts of their enterprise distribution platform so that it can address the business goals and meet regulatory requirements. GIS is part of this. Yet, GIS isn’t a single tool. It is a series of individual products that are pieced together to form a platform for addressing business needs. Those who have reviewed Esri’s “Arc-soup” understand. Many utilities have the goal to implement a powerful, easy to use platform that quickly delivers on business needs. However, operators are faced with the challenge to know what are the right products to implement, when to implement them, and who to seek help from? Join Novara as we discuss how distribution utilities can take an Esri based, scalable, platform to successfully meet their design, as-built, asset management, compliance, field and DIMP business needs. Its can be run from internal servers or a utility can opt to have it hosted externally. Participants will learn about how the foundation of this solution, Esri’s ArcGIS suite and the UPDM data model work together seamlessly. Learn how to set the implementation schedule up to be completed all at once or over time so as to work with your budget. Participants will learn how they can use this platform to address the utilities engineering, and compliance requirements inside of the corporate IT structure. Join us on Wednesday, November 9, 2016 at 1:00pm (EST)/11:00am (MST)/10:00am (PST) to learn about how leveraging a proven Gas Distribution Platform can improve decision-making but also lower infrastructure risk. With Novara’s Distribution platform you can: • Design new service and trunk lines and import as-built records • Take information into the field and update your records • Calculate your Risk and improve your DIMP plan • Communicate and provide transparency to stakeholders and executives • Generate maps and produce digital and paper mapbooks

The geographical map is one of the major advancements that man has developed over thousands of years. We have come a long way from Ptolemy’s maps to have our modern-day, precise, digital maps. Over time, many ways of obtaining of spatial information have been created and developed.
More than 150 years have passed since the day French inventor Gaspard-Félix Tournachon took a photograph of Paris from an air balloon. This photograph started the phenomenon of remote sensing, which rapidly developed in the twentieth century and has continued to evolve in the twenty-first century.

Autodesk University (AU) is many things. First, it was an event. Then it became many events. Now it’s also an online destination for learning.
AU began in 1993 as an Autodesk software user conference in San Francisco. It was a chance for designers, architects, and engineers to come together and learn from the best in their industries, share practical tips for getting the most from the software, compare notes, and rub elbows with their peers.
