Spatial Accuracy 2016

Dear Colleague:

The international conference Spatial Accuracy 2016 will be held in Montpellier (southern France) from the 5th to the 8th of July, 2016. The call for abstracts is now open at https://colloque.inra.fr/spatial-accuracy2016/.

The 12th International symposium on "Spatial Accuracy Assessment in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences" is the latest in an academic conference series held every two years since 1994 under the auspices of the International Spatial Accuracy Research Association (ISARA, http://www.spatial-accuracy.org/).

The Symposium is a unique place to bring together experts from environmental sciences, natural resources, spatial statistics, and geographic information science, among other disciplines, developing theory and methods for assessing and understanding spatial accuracies and spatial uncertainties in, for example, mapping, monitoring systems, and spatial simulation platforms. This 12th edition of the symposia will focus on sensitivity analyses techniques for spatial modelling (ranking the importance of spatial input uncertainties) as well as the management of spatial uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems. Of course, treatments of other relevant accuracy and uncertainty topics are welcome, too.
