VGC 2018: Abstract submission extended until 30th March 2018
Apologies for any cross-postings of this message.
Please see the below newsletter from the 3rd Virtual Geoscience
Conference committee. Abstract submission extended until *30th March*.
The last (2016) conference was a great opportunity for multidisciplinary
discussions at the boundary between geomatics, geoscience and related
fields, so we are looking forward to an exciting follow-up in Canada in
August. Hope to see many of you there.
*Immerse yourself in Virtual Geoscience at VGC 2018 – There is still
time to submit abstracts!*
The 3rd Virtual Geoscience Conference will be held in the beautiful
Limestone City, Kingston, Canada, August 22-24, 2018. This is the
premier conference for researchers, government, and industry members
conducting innovative research in close range remote sensing and
computer visualization applied to the geosciences. This year’s meeting
focus is on the theme of immersive geoscience and novel developments in
virtual and augmented reality. The broad focus of the conference series
allows geoscientists from a variety of subdisciplines to share
experience with the latest tools, software, and, technological innovations.
Abstract submission for the conference has been extended to *March 30,
2018*. Submission must be made using the conference submission page. The
organizing committee is looking forward to reading your latest
