Keynote speakers

We are proud to announce three keynote speakers for LBS 2014, and they are Prof. Liqiu Meng (Technische Universität München), Prof. Chris Rizos (University of New South Wales), and Prof. Jürgen Döllner (University of Potsdam). For more information regarding the keynotes, please visit here.

Preliminary Program is Online

Our first preliminary program is online. We ask all authors to check it and confirm it by registering before 24 October 2014. (At least one presenter per paper. If you did so already, you can ignore this, of course.)

As we have a high number of presenters we decided to have short time slots of 10 and 15 minutes to allow for more time for networking in the breaks.

Deadline extension for camera-ready papers for the digital proceedings

Due to several requests, we have extended the deadline for camera-ready submissions for the digital proceedings to 29 October 2014. Please use the submission guideline "Contributions accepted for the digital proceedings".

Please note that there will be no further extension of the deadline. Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!

We invite you to a two-day hands-on workshop on "Open Source GIS and Modern Webmapping", which will be held on November 24th and 25th in Vienna, Austria, immediately prior to the LBS2014/SOMAP2014 conference. Registration for this workshop is free. For more information, please click here .
