International Conference on Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) 2010
The main theme of the Conference will be the development and use of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI's) and all their aspects - technology, criteria and standards for organizing and sharing spatial data. The realization of the European INSPIRE directive in the countries of South East Europe is expected to be an important part of the conference.
The conference will show the importance of SDIs and their use, on local, national or regional level in the region of South East Europe and its relation to global initiatives. It targets the process of spatial data sharing through the Internet, as a tool for faster, easier and simpler access to spatial data by all stakeholders, customers and clients; the implementation of International/Global and European criteria for organizing digital spatial data; the impact of SDIs on all application fields; cooperation between stakeholders such as state institutions responsible for collecting, structuring, archiving, updating and analyzing spatial data according to their legal mission and obligation.
The conference will bring together stakeholders interested in the development and use of SDIs, with a focus on the region of South-East Europe; participants from other countries-continents would contribute with their research and experience. Scientist, researchers, industry and data owners from public or private sector are expected to contribute to increased understanding and awareness of SDIs in the region and to the identification of new ways of their implementation and use; around 200 persons are expected to take part to this event.
