See call for general papers: http://geomatics.org.za/call-general-papers/
Deadline for submission of abstracts for selection: 30 April 2015
General papers should be approximately 3000 to 4000 words in length, relevant to the themes and subject matter of the conference, and of general interest and relevance to the target audience. While it is accepted that proprietary technologies, products and services may be described, general papers should be generic in nature and should not have an overtly self-serving or commercial content.
General papers will be selected on the basis of their significance, relevance, correctness, originality and clarity following a review process (see below). Upon acceptance, the final papers will be published in the printed Proceedings of the GI 2015 Conference (ISBN 978-0-620-64078-7), as well as on the conference CD and website. Selected general papers may also be published in PositionIT magazine.
See call for peer-reviewed academic papers: http://geomatics.org.za/call-peer-reviewed-academic-papers/
Deadline for submission of full papers: 30 April 2015
Authors and presenters are invited to submit peer-reviewed academic papers of approximately 5000 words (including tables, figures, and references) for presentation at the GI 2015 conference. Peer-reviewed academic papers should cover and report on the outputs of theoretical and applied research relevant to the theme, subject matter and target audience of the conference. While it is accepted that proprietary technologies, products and services may be described, peer-reviewed academic papers should be generic in nature, and should not have overtly self-serving or commercial content. Authors are urged to write papers detailing completed research rather than ‘work-in-progress’. Each paper will undergo rigorous double-blind peer-review to ensure high quality papers. Academic papers must be submitted using the on-line paper submission system of the South African Journal of Geomatics available at: http://www.sajg.org.za/ . A selection of papers will be published in the South African Journal of Geomatics (ISSN 2225-8531).
Presenters (i.e. one person per paper presented) may attend the conference on the day of their presentation at no cost, but if the presenter wishes to attend the full conference and hospitality functions (refreshments, lunches, cocktail party, etc.), then a reduced delegate fee of R3400 + VAT applies.
