The Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS is honoured to host the 12th International Symposium on Digital Earth – ISDE12 – July, 6-8 2021. Scheduled within the annual ‚GI-Week‘, this special event will bring together policy makers and scientists and will explore pathways towards the vision of a ‘Digital Earth’.


Digital Earth is destined as a defining scientific and technological achievement of the 21st century. This will demand extreme computing for the most demanding Big Data challenges, the smartest applications of artificial intelligence, webs of sensors and actuators, and compelling gamification and visualisation methods. Most importantly, it will require agile minds collaborating in cross-discipline innovation and pursuit of scientific excellence. Young people in particular, as ‘digital natives’, are adept in connecting local action and global changes through mixed-reality media linked to open online services.

ISDE12 aims to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by harnessing the world’s data and information resources to digitally represent our planet, and to monitor, measure and forecast natural and human activities on Earth.

ISDE12 is organized as a hybrid eventLogo ISDE12

ISDE wants to enable an international audience to participate in ISDE12 in July 2021. That’s why the symposium is organized as a hybrid conference.

They are working on a hygiene concept, that makes it possible to visit part of the program in Salzburg on-site. ISDE takes COVID-19 measures seriously and adapts the concept on the actual situation.

For all not travelling to Austria, sessions will be streamed online – so you won’t miss anything. A discounted ticket is offered for the online conference.
