The Geoinformatics conference series was initiated by the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS) in 1992. This international conference series has provided a unique forum for exchanging novel ideas and cutting-edge knowledge on geographic information sciences and technologies among GIS professionals worldwide.

This year, 2017, marks the 25th anniversary of CPGIS. NCGIA-Buffalo is proud to host this landmark event at the birth place of CPGIS to celebrate 25 years' success and pay tribute to CPGIS members.

We welcome traditional topics in GIScience and also encourage papers on new and emergent themes including: Big GeoData, GIScience of the Internet of Things, Geospatial Semantic Web, Sensor Geomatics, Geosimulation Modeling, Mobile Computing, Mobile Behavior, Complex Networks, Online Social Media, Cyber Computing, Events and Process, and Critical GIS to address societal issues, such as climate change, smart cities, precision medicine, urban mobility, crime analysis, migration, disaster, and environmental sustainability.
