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. A number of keynotes and open sessions,
led by outstanding experts in the field are also planned.

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 Hydrology and Earth System
Sciences (http://www.hydrology-and-earth-system-sciences.net/index.html)
is planned, and selected authors will be invited to submit full papers
for review for this special issue.

Three workshops entitled, "Automated analysis of elevation data in
R+ILWIS/SAGA"; "DEM analysis using ArcGIS toolbox"; "Back to reality -
Reconciling geomorphometry and geomorphology in the field" are
planned. Further details of workshops are available on the conference
web site.

We are delighted to announce that Professor David Mark, SUNY
Distinguished Professor in the Department of Geography at the State
University of New York at Buffalo and Dr Jo Wood, Reader in GI Science
at the Department for Information Science at City University, London,
have agreed to give keynote lectures at Geomorphometry 2009.

Prospective authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of up to
2000 words by the 24th of March 2009 (Extended deadline). Papers
should be prepared according to the following guidelines (Word
Document http://2009.geomorphometry.org/geomorphAbs.doc) (PDF
http://2009.geomorphometry.org/geomorphAbs.pdf). Papers must be
submitted as PDF through the EasyChair system at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=geomorph2009. If you do not
already have an EasyChair account follow the onscreen instructions to
create one.

Registration will open on the 1st of March 2009. Early registration
rates for the conference (before 15th of May) will be 450 Swiss
Francs. Late registration rates will be 550 Swiss Francs.
