The GSDI 15 World Conference will take place 29 November to 2 December 2016 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center in Taiwan (Rep. of China). Leaders in spatial data infrastructure (SDI) development will share candid views on the challenges and societal benefits associated with implementing advanced ICT (information and communications technology), applications for spatial data, and open data policy. Plenty of networking opportunities are being built into the conference program so that attendees can spend time talking to each other to learn, share, and strengthen professional ties. There are also opportunities to present and/or attend Workshops on 28 November, prior to the conference.

The GSDI World Conference has built a reputation for excellence in content as it relocates across the globe to offer geospatial specialists in all parts of the world opportunities to better exchange ideas and learn from global peers in building SDI. GSDI 15 is being jointly hosted by GSDI and its Taiwan-based members, the Taiwan Association of Disaster Prevention Industry (TADPI) and the Taiwan Geographic Information System Center (TGIC), with strong support from Ministry of the Interior (MOI), Government of Taiwan.

The theme of the conference is “Spatial Enablement in the Smart Homeland,” which currently has been organized into five conference Tracks:

  • Track 1: SDI for the Smart Homeland & Disaster Management, Reduction and Mitigation
  • Track 2: SDI Governance and Policy Developments & Geo Data for Decision Making
