Overview of the Conference

The Japan-Vietnam Geoinformatics Consortium (JVGC) was founded in 2001 to develop and promote Geoinformatics applications and foster cooperation in application of Information and Communication Technologies to problems and issues related to our natural and social environment. To achieve these aims, the JVGC:

  • support capacity building through organization of symposia, workshops, seminars, and fieldworks.
  • share information resources and know-how in Geoinformatics
  • support the conduct and implementation of joint research and projects in Geoinformatics
  • promote exchange of information and academic publications
  • develop a human resource network to support development and growth of Geoinformatics

The conference registration fee has been kept low to encourage widespread participation. This is important in particular for applicants from less well-endowed countries, private individuals and students. Special efforts will be made during the conference to foster technology transfer to developing countries especially in the Southeast Asian region. Sponsors can provide funds to cover general conference expenses or provide much needed travel grants and support waiver of registration fee for deserving applicants. To become a sponsor or exhibitor contact the
Conference Secretariat.
