Dear All,


I would like to invite expressions of interest for Ordnance Survey Think
Tank Session on "Research challenges in automated generalization and
cartographic modelling" to be held on 8 December 2009 (Tuesday) at The
University of Nottingham.


The Ordnance Survey has awarded a research contract to the Centre of
Geospatial Science (CGS) to investigate future data and data management
developments that might impact on Ordnance Survey's operations and


Please see http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/cgs/projects_os.html     for more


In part fulfilment of this contract we are organising a series of Think
Tank events to explore relevant technology developments and to better
understand how these developments might influence and impact on spatial
data capture and usage in the future. The proposed Think Tank event is
to be held on Tuesday 8th December at Nottingham and will cover the
topics of  automated generalization and cartographic modelling. 


The Think Tank Meeting will a one-day event with 10 experts drawn from a
mix of academic, commercial and industry backgrounds. Selected experts
may be invited to give brief presentations but in each case significant
time will be allocated for discussion and open exploration of likely
developments and potential consequences.  The meeting will operate
according to Chatham House rules.


Interested participants are invited to submit short position paper (max
2 A4 pages) detailing their potential think tank contribution,
expectations, vision and research interest, before 30th Oct 2009 to
Suchith.Anand at nottingham.ac.uk   


Travel and accommodation costs of all the selected participants will be
reimbursed. Selection of invited experts will be made by the Ordnance


Think Tank Outcomes


*             Identify key research trends in automated generalization

*             Identify mid-term (2-3 years) and long-term (5-10 years)
research challenges in automated generalization.

*             Produce report on the Think Tank findings. 


We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest for the OS
Think Tank on automated generalization. Please contact me for any


Best wishes,
