The aim of Geomorphometry 2011 is to bring together researchers to present
and discuss recent 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, planetary
geomorphology, 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 2011 conference will continue a series initiated by the
Terrain Analysis and Digital Terrain Modelling conference hosted by Nanjing
Normal University in November 2006 and *University of Zurich in

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

   - Extraction of land-surface parameters from DEMs
   - Implications of novel DEM data sources
   - Identification and classification of land-surface objects
   - Uncertainty in geomorphometry
   - Planetary geomorphometry
   - Processing of LiDAR data
   - Semantics of land-surface description
   - 3D 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


Geomorphometry will host *up to three workshops*, each with 15-30 attendees
after the conference (weekend). 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 submit your proposal by *1st of January 2011* using this
The workshops will be selected based on the sign-ups (after March 2011).
A minimum requirement to run a workshop is to collect 10 sign-ups. Based on
the registrations received, the conference organizers will partially refund
some of the conference costs for the workshop organizers (note: workshop
organizers do need to register for the conference and pay the registration


Prospective authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of up to  4
pages (ca 2000 words) by *1st of March 2011*. 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
