GIslands 2012 – 2nd Advanced International Summer School on GIS and Islands: Climate Change and Coastal Environmental Planning
5-11th August, 2012
Biology Department, University of Azores, São Miguel Island, Portugal
GIslands 2012 is an International Summer School on Geotechnologies applied to Climate Change and Coastal Environmental Planning organized by the Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources (CIBIO-Azores) at University of the Azores, situated in the beautiful Azores archipelago in North Atlantic.
In this 7-day course a diverse and multinational team of lecturers from Spain, United Kingdom, USA and Portugal will share their experiences and students will present their research related to Climate Change and Coastal Environmental Planning and learn through theories and hands-on experiences on how to apply Geotechnologies on Climate Change and Coastal Environmental Planning.
Participants are invited to present their work/case-study at the course in the related fields of Marine & Coastal Sciences (MSP, Ocean Governance, Oceanography, Marine Biology, Marine Geology, Fisheries, ICZM, etc.) and Applied Geotechnologies (GIS, Remote Sensing, GPS) and to apply for GIslands 2012 participation.
Deadline for short papers and abstracts submission: 15th June 2012
