Geomatics Scientific Meeting

Geomatics Scientific Meeting on Spatial Planning and Disaster

Theme: Geomatics Scientific Meeting on Coastal Management to Support SDG

Indonesia is a country with a wide range of disaster vulnerabilities areas. This condition encourages many parties to engage in activities that can reduce disaster risks and impacts. One of the efforts made is by drawing up disaster – oriented spatial plans. As an archipelagic country, coastal areas are also exposed to disaster vulnerability such as tsunami, high tide, wave and the impact of rising sea levels due to climate change. This condition encourages efforts to plan disaster management for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Therefore, there is an urgent need for a scientific meeting to share knowledge on the implementation of spatial plan -based disaster management and other disaster model. This scientific meeting is expected to be the first step in a communication forum to establish cooperation, exchange views and experiences in the development of methods, strategies to address disaster – oriented issues of spatial planning. As an side event of the 5th International conference of Indonesian Society for Remote Sensing (5th ICOIRS), Badan informasi geospasial in collaboration with Indonesian society for remote sensing and DBAR-coast promotes the Geomatics Scientific Meeting on Coastal Management to Support SDGs that will be held by on September, 17th -18th  2019 at ITENAS Campus, Bandung.

The objective of this scientific meeting is to establish a forum for communication and collaboration on research as a means of exchanging ideas and experiences in the development of methods, strategies using the geomatic field of science to address disaster – based spatial planning problems. We call for policy makers, practitioners, lecturers and students with geomatic or related backgrounds or with interest and experience in spatial planning, coastal and disaster management policy, planning and technical aspects to be participated. We also invite the participants to submit the papers that will cover the subject of :

i.          Spatial planning

ii.         Disaster management

iii.        Community development

iv.        Coastal development

v.         Transportation

vi.        Marine debris

vii.       Coastal economic empowerment

viii.      Cooperation on regional sustainable seas and coast.

ix.        Coastal policy

x.         Biodiversity

Special Call for paper for Students:

Free of charge for 35 students will be given to those whose papers have been successfully selected to attend the Geomatic scientific meeting and the 5th ICOIRS events. The paper  can be written in English or Indonesia and will be published in the geomatics proceedings. Papers written English will have an chance to be published in the 5th ICOIRS proceeding, indexed by IOP.
