Call for Papers - ILMF 2007 - Baltimore, MD. Feb 12-13, 2007
The International LIDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) is now seeking submissions of presentations and technical papers for the ILMF2007 Annual Meeting, which will be held February 12-13, 2007 in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel.
The ILMF has become the premier event for the LIDAR industry. This "summit" is the gathering of industry leaders, pioneers, experts from government, academia, and professionals from myriad industries looking to invest in, and benefit from, LIDAR technology and services.
The ILMF 2007 meeting will include a full day of parallel breakout and plenary sessions - submissions are requested for the following:
Breakout Sessions - Monday, February 12, 2007
Aerial LIDAR Mapping: With over ten years of practical application, still many opportunities and obstacles abound: What are the technical, practical and business issues facing the future of aerial LIDAR mapping? Submissions should focus on the latest trends, technologies and opportunities, as well as "Intro to LIDAR" for newcomers to the technology.
LIDAR Bathymetry: A half-day session will be devoted entirely to LIDAR bathymetry. Contributions are welcomed from individuals and organizations engaged in this particular field of LIDAR mapping.
LIDAR Data Processing: The ILMF is inviting submissions from software vendors and LIDAR data users to share their ideas and experiences with the latest tools, techniques and challenges related to the processing, handling, managing, distributing and adding value to LIDAR data.
Sensor Fusion: Submissions are invited regarding the fusion of LIDAR and other data, particularly terrestrial laser scanning, close-range photogrammetry, digital cameras, multispectral and hyperspectral imagery, and IFSAR. The resulting products are becoming a critical source of value added or "intelligent" data. A brief overview of the various sensor types will also be presented.
Plenary Sessions - Tuesday, February 13, 2007
Submissions for the Plenary Sessions are invited on any subject related to LIDAR mapping, although preference will be given to submissions addressing any of the following topics or subjects: The State of the Industry * Urban 3D Modeling * Data Quality Assurance and Control * LIDAR Mapping Applications and Projects * International LIDAR Mapping Operations.
- Abstracts should be about 200 words and must be submitted to the ILMF Organizer (
Email Contact) no later than November 10, 2006.
- If accepted, final presentations should be in MS PowerPoint or similar format. The ILMF reserves the right to publish presentations in a record of the proceedings.

Full registration provides access to all conference sessions and materials; complete conference proceedings; access to all sponsored social events, meals, breaks and reception.
The International LIDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF) is committed to the advancement of education and knowledge of LIDAR mapping technology and applications. To further this goal, the ILMF holds an annual meeting that brings together LIDAR professionals from around the world to network and learn about the latest technology, issues affecting LIDAR mapping and future opportunities.
