INTRODUCTION & INVITATION

The world has experienced several devastating disasters in this century, first an Earthquake of a very high magnitude and then Tsunami afterwards or heavy rain flows, followed by floods and landslides are common occurrences. These are conditions where even the most advanced EWS cannot make a significant difference. So, most of the potential to mitigate such a disaster in the future would have to be in the field of vulnerability reduction by adaptation, e.g. in urban planning and construction, based on risk and vulnerability maps.

Another question is the quality and coordination of disaster mapping activities to support response measures. Here we should coordinate all efforts globally as most of the disasters nowadays affect Trans boundaries. So the Geoinformation technologies will and better expressed should help in all facets of Disaster Management. An international effort in this direction is the Gi4DM series of Conferences, which was held for the first time in 2005 in Delft after the Indian Ocean Tsunami and repeated every year in almost all parts of the world. The upcoming conference in next March 2018 will demonstrate the last international advances in Geoinformation regarding the Disaster Management.

We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract and in case of acceptance your paper to this conference…All accepted papers will be published in ISPRS Archives... The ISPRS Archives are listed in the ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) of the Web of Science, SCOPUS, and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
Please note that your manuscript needs to follow the official ISPRS publication guidelines:  http://www.isprs.org/documents/orangebook/app5.aspx

Another possibility for your papers to be presented at Gi4DM is that authors can publish their papers at the ISPRS Journal of Geo-Information which is an open access journal with an Impact Factor of 1.502 (2016).

Instructions for authors are as follows:
***********************************************************************
1. Please provide a cover-letter to indicate it was a contribution from Gi4DM 2018.
2. Conference papers should be expanded to the size of a research article by adding at least 50% new materials.
3. Editorial Procedures including following parts: pre-check, peer review, revision, decision and publication (rejection).
4. The publishing fees of IJGI will be 1000CHF from 1 January 2018.
