The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE) has held annual conferences focused on Geographic Information Science since 1998. The next AGILE 2024 conference will be held in Glasgow, UK, on 4-7 June 2024.

The conference theme “Geographic Information Science for a Sustainable Future” aims to explore the critical role of geographic information science in shaping a sustainable future. Geographic information science is crucial in understanding and managing the complex relationships between the environment, society, and the economy. The theme recognizes the power of spatial data and analysis in informing decision-making processes and promoting sustainable practices across various sectors.

We cordially invite researchers, scholars, practitioners, and professionals in all facets of Geo-Information Science and Technology and their applications to the conference, to present ongoing research, showcase products, network with colleagues from Europe and the rest of the world, and find out about the latest developments in the field. We encourage submissions that encompass innovative research, practical applications, and theoretical contributions in line with the conference theme.

Topics of interest for paper submissions include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D Modelling, Analysis and Visualization
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Geo-AI
  • Big Spatial Data: Analysis and Visualization
  • Cognitive Aspects of Human-Computer Interaction for GIS

The call for papers has a full paper (published in the AGILE: GIScience Series of Copernicus Publishers), a short paper (published in the same publisher) and a poster paper track ready for the Conference. The 27th AGILE Conference will have oral presentation sessions, at least three keynote sessions, a poster session, a best paper and a best poster session, as well as pre-conference workshops. The submission of papers is via EasyChair. The paper submission guidelines are listed below.

The details about the conference registration, the venue, general program, etc., are described on the AGILE conference website.

Graduate and PhD students pay lower fees, and gain high visibility within the GI community. In addition, AGILE offers a limited number of travel grants to support students who lack funding (please, look at the grant page). Following last year’s practice, AGILE 2024 will support the reproducibility of submitted manuscripts, and the accepted paper must have a section describing the data and software availability. In addition, all accepted submissions will be published as Open Access articles to gain further visibility.
