Call for Abstracts for the 2nd PhD Colloquium of the DGK Section 
on Geoinformatics and the DGPF Working Group on Geoinformatics

Focus Topic: Methodology of Mobile and Dynamic Systems 

Date: February 23–24, 2016
Venue: University of Bonn
Deadline: January 4, 2016

The Section on Geoinformatics (Sektion Geoinformatik) of the German Geodetic 
Commission (Deutsche Geodätische Kommission, DGK) and the Working Group 
on Geoinformatics (Arbeitskreis Geoinformatik) of the German Society for 
Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für 
Photogrammetrie, Fernerkundung und Geoinformation, DGPF) will hold their second 
joint PhD colloquium from February 23 to 24, 2016 at the University of Bonn. The 
colloquium aims to stimulate scientific exchange between young researchers in the 
interdisciplinary field of geoinformatics. It is targeted at PhD students who have 
already made considerable advances in their PhD projects and are able and highly 
motivated to share their findings. PhD students from all disciplines dealing with 
methods for the processing of geospatial information (e.g., geoinformatics, 
photogrammetry, computer science, cartography, geography, remote sensing, robotics) 
are welcome. We particularly invite PhD students working on problems related to the 
focus topic “Methodology of Mobile and Dynamic Systems”. This includes but is not 
limited to the following problems: 
* Motion prediction, detection of movement patterns, and trajectory analysis
* Mapping in dynamic environments
* Simultaneous localization and mapping
* Integration and analysis of data from mobile sensors
* Algorithms for dynamic and interactive maps
* Representation and analysis of multi-temporal data, e.g., video or remote sensing data
* Estimation of semantic information from sensor data

Contributions must adhere to the following guidelines:
* Each contribution must be summarized and submitted in form of an abstract of about two pages.
 Based on the submissions, a maximum of 15 PhD students will be invited.
* Each accepted abstract will be presented either in a short (5 minute) talk or in a full-length talk
 of approx. 30 to 45 minutes.
* We encourage presenters of both short and full-length talks to address open problems related
 to the focus topic.

The language of the colloquium is English. The colloquium will be chaired by multiple 
professors from geoinformatics, who will contribute to the program with an overview talk 
and a tutorial on the focus topic. Participation is free of charge. Applications (including 
name, affiliation, and abstract) are to be sent by January 4, 2016 via e-mail to 
Jan-Henrik Haunert (janhhaunert at uni-osnabrueck.de).
