Just a reminder on this nice conference (the first two were really great!).

Helena Mitasova is one of the keynote speakers.

it would be great to have some GRASS users there.


Extended abstracts due: 1 March 2011

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.
Redlands is in San Bernardino County and at the eastern end of the S.
Californian metropolis, some 100 km east of Los Angeles. It is between
'The Badlands' and the San Bernardino Mountains, beyond which is the
Mohave Desert.

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 2009.

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


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 scientific 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 selection of papers will
be invited for publication in a special issue of the Transactions in


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 February 2011 using this
webform. 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 fees!).


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 date.
