Geomorphometry 2009 Workshops 29 August & 30 August 2009

Geomorphometry 2009 31 August - 2 September 2009


The aim of Geomorphometry 2009 is to bring together researchers to
present and discuss developments in the field of quantitative
modelling and analysis of elevation data. Geomorphometry is the
science of quantitative land-surface analysis and description at
diverse spatial scales. It draws upon mathematical, statistical and
image-processing techniques and interfaces with many disciplines
including hydrology, geology, computational geometry, geomorphology,
remote sensing, geographic information science and geography. The
conference aims to attract leading researchers in geomorphometry
presenting methodological advances in the field and to provide young
researchers with an opportunity to present new results.

The Geomorphometry 2009 conference will continue a series initiated by
the Terrain Analysis and Digital Terrain Modelling conference hosted
by Nanjing Normal University in November 2006.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- Extraction of land-surface parameters from DEMs

- Implications of novel data sources

- Identification and classification of land-surface objects

- Uncertainty in geomorphometry

- Semantics of land-surface description

- Visualisation in geomorphometry

- Implications of scale and resolution

- Flow and hydrological modelling using DEMs

- Efficient methods for application to large data sets

- Novel applications of geomorphometry

- Planetary geomorphometry

We specifically aim at papers with new methodological insights and
thus papers which simply describe the application of GIS are


The conference programme will be based around a single track of
papers, all of which will be subject to review in the form of extended
abstracts by members of the programme committee. Criteria for paper
acceptance will include relevance to the conference, novelty,
scientific significance, relation to previous work in the domain and
the quality of presentation. The proceedings will be made available
both digitally and as printed working materials to attendees at the
time of the conference and archived online. A special issue of a
journal, to which authors will be invited to submit full papers after
the conference is also planned.


Geomorphometry will host up to three workshops, each with 15-30
attendees on the 29th and 30th August. We invite applications to host
a workshop on a theme related to the main conference. Workshops should
primarily take the form of either tutorials in a particular method or
technique, or provide the opportunity for detailed discussion of
upcoming topics. They should not simply be mini-conferences. If you
are interested in organising a workshop, please mail
2009 at geomorphometry.org with WORKSHOP as the subject line, as well as
a 1-page description of the workshop with the following headings:
intended aims and scope, intended audience, outline workshop programme
and technical requirements.


Prospective authors will be invited to submit extended abstracts of up
to 2000 words by the above deadline through the EasyChair system.
Formatting instructions and detailed information on using the
submission system will be available in due course. Extended abstracts
must be original works by the authors, not be currently under review
in the same form by another outlet and not submitted elsewhere prior
to the notification date.
