GeoWeb 2008 Conference Call for Papers

GeoWeb 2008 Conference Organizers Call for Papers Deadline is in two weeks. The theme for the GeoWeb 2008 conference is Infrastructure: Local to Global. This implies the GeoWeb has a local or community dimension as well as a global one - that the integration of local infrastructures will give rise to a global infrastructure - that global aggregators will drive the creation of local infrastructures.

* Global aggregators and Data Communities

* GeoWeb in Security and Defense
