Call for Papers*- GIS/EM4 (Second Circular - Revised due date)

4th International Conference on Integrating
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Environmental Modeling

September 2-8, 2000: The Banff Centre for Conferences, Banff, Alberta,
Canada
Sponsors to-date: NSF, NCGIA, NASA, USFS, EPA, NOAA, USGS, USACE/DOD,
NRCS

Please respond to: http://www.colorado.edu/research/cires/banff or
gisem4 at spot.colorado.edu

*Abstracts are invited for book chapters, journal articles, tutorials or
workshops, method/technique/ tool demonstrations, and electronic or
static "poster" presentations contributing to the 4th International
Conference on Integrating GIS and Environmental Modeling. The meeting
will be held in dedicated, full service facilities at The Banff Centre
for Conferences in Banff, Alberta, Canada, September 2-8, 2000.
Self-explanatory abstracts in English should be 1-2 pages in length and
must include title, author (s), institutional affiliation (s),
explanation of completed work to be described, and 5-10 author-assigned
key words. Clear relevance must be shown to predictive, numerical
modeling approaches to environmental problem solving. A special
conference theme will be human-environment interactions, and the role
that GIS and modeling have in their improved understanding and
prediction.

The forum will retain its cross-disciplinary, pan-scientific, and
problem solving emphases consistent with a concern for better integrated
understanding of complex whole systems, their integrity and sustained
functioning, and particularly (but not exclusively) their interactions
with human activity. Spatial, statistical, temporal, and other
methodological considerations are expected to be given balanced
treatment with issues of science theory, new data sources and sensors,
computing technologies, and application techniques.

Abstracts should be submitted no later than 5:00 pm (Pacific Standard
Time) on December 17, 1999 (extended from Nov. 19) via a web-active form
available on the conference web page at
http://www.colorado.edu/research/cires/banff/. This URL also contains
