Call for Papers

The Brazilian Symposium on Geoinformatics (GEOINFO) is an annual conference for exploring research, development, and innovative applications in geographic information science and related areas. Papers should describe original ongoing or recently finished work. An international scientific committee will review the submissions.

Special edition in Journal

Authors of selected full papers will be invited to submit an extended version in a special edition of the Brazilian Journal of Cartography (RBC) or the Journal of Information and Data Management (JIDM).

RBC is a traditional open access journal that has been published six times a year, for more than 40 years. It is sponsored by the Brazilian Society of Cartography, Geodesy, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (SBC), focusing on Cartography, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Geodesy, and related areas.

JIDM is an electronic journal that is published three times a year. It is sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), focusing on information and data management in large repositories and document collections. It relates to different areas of Computer Science, including databases, information retrieval, digital libraries, knowledge discovery, data mining and geographical information systems.
