Abstract deadline: 30 June 2008.

The International Conference on GeoInformatics for Spatial-Infrastructure Development in Earth & Allied Sciences (GIS-IDEAS) is scheduled to take place in Hanoi, Vietnam, 4-6 December 2008. GIS-IDEAS 2008 is being organized by JVGC in cooperation with Hanoi University of Mining and Geology (HUMG). The University of Sciences, VNU - Hanoi and the Institute of Information Technology, VAST are two co-organizers. GIS-IDEAS 2008 is the forth in the series of very successful GIS-IDEAS Conferences, with first and second been held in Hanoi, Vietnam in September 2002 and September 2004 and the third in HCMC in November 2006. The main theme of the GIS-IDEAS 2008 "Towards Sustainable and Creative Humanosphere". Apart from Technical Sessions on Geoinformatics technology and applications, special sessions on following topics are also planned:
Geonformatics for Sustainable Use and Management of Natural Resources
Geoinformatics for Health 
Open Source Geoinformatics
Open Standards for Spatial Data Infrastructure
Area Informatics and Applications 
The GISIDEAS 2008 will also focus on development of spatial databases and analysis of spatial data for modelling and simulation of processes related to our natural, social and human environment. GIS-IDEAS 2008 not only aims to serve as a forum for scientific exchanges but also as a conduit for technology transfer through tutorial sessions. Further, in order to promote a better understanding of local needs, field excursions and visits to scientific institutes in Vietnam are also being planned.
