The next Digital Earth Symposium is hosted by the USA

The deadline for Call for Papers is January 15, 2007.
The Symposium Session Group devoted to "Nations" will be co-chaired by Tom Gold of the Berkeley University and Gabor Remetey-Fülöpp from HUNAGI/Hungary, who was invited also to the Programme Committee. As known, HUNAGI submitted bid to host the biannual events since 2003, but Japan and the USA won the right to organise the events in 2005 and 2007. Now the chance to win the right for Hungary/Europe is higher as ever but there is a need for concentrated action involving the governmental agencies including the Space Research Office, the academic institutions, the EO/GI sector and related R+D institutions as well as the relevant European institutions such as DG JRC and DG Research. The bid should be presentation-ready at early June next year. The 5th ISDE is organised by Dr. Timothy W. Foresman (President of Global Water and the International Center for Remote Sensing Education) and supported among others by NASA, NOAA, UNESCO, Stanford University, University of California at Berkeley and many more.
