GeoComputation 2019 - Adventures in GeoComputation


Home Call for Papers Programme Registration Queenstown Contact


The 15th International Conference on GeoComputation, GeoComputation 2019, will be returning to New Zealand, being held in the mountain resort of Queenstown from Wednesday 18th September to Saturday 21st September 2019. The conference will be jointly organised by University of Otago, University of Auckland, University of Canterbury and Victoria University Wellington.

We invite submitted papers and extended abstracts on research within the broad geocomputation scope. We also invite submissions for themed sessions within the conference and workshops to run on the first scheduled day. Also running on that day is the New Zealand Geospatial Research Conference 2019.

Queenstown is the stunning setting for this GeoComputation conference, nestled in the Southern Alps of New Zealand on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. It is a popular base for all sorts of outdoor recreation: walking (locally, “tramping”), biking and at this time of year, the late ski season. It is also the “adventure capital of the world” for those after bungee jumping and white water rafting thrills.

We look forward to welcoming you to New Zealand!

The GeoComputation conference series

The GeoComputation international research conference series (“The Art and Science of Solving Complex Spatial Problems with Computers”) has been running since the inaugural 1996 Leeds conference. Since 2001, the conference has run every alternate year with GIScience. The 2017 conference returned to Leeds to celebrate its 21st anniversary and now returns to New Zealand after the 1997 conference at the University of Otago.

Each GeoComputation conference has the following aims:
- To attract researchers and presenters of international standing.
- To facilitate global networking between institutions and individuals.
- To promote active collaboration amongst workers from diverse parent disciplines.
- To create an international focus for current state-of-the-art research.
- To provide a mechanism for disseminating the latest innovations and discoveries.
- To highlight the benefits and limitations of new computational techniques.
- To act as a constructive forum for inter-disciplinary discussion of research ideas.
- To generate a framework that allows newcomers to see their work in an international context.
- To indicate fruitful directions for further research.
