Since we were just talking about geology and information use (in a roundabout way) I thought I would pass this along.  Geoinformatics is a developing subdivision (like SIGS) of the Geological Society of America.  If you look at the symposia description attached you can see some of the overlap with the field of Information and Library Science.

Dear Geoinformatics Division Members,

I hope you've all had a good summer, and are gearing up for an exciting set of Geoinformatics<http://www.mmsend54.com/link.cfm?r=239796227&sid=15087379&m=1503544&u=GEOSOCIETY&j=6922793&s=http://www.geoexpertsintl.com/geoinformatics/> Division sessions at the 2011 GSA<http://www.mmsend54.com/link.cfm?r=239796227&sid=15087380&m=1503544&u=GEOSOCIETY&j=6922793&s=http://www.geosociety.org/meetings/2011/> Annual Meeting in October.

This message to alert you about the Geoinformatics 'super symposium' being planned for the International Geological Congress (IGC)<http://www.mmsend54.com/link.cfm?r=239796227&sid=15087381&m=1503544&u=GEOSOCIETY&j=6922793&s=http://www.34igc.org/> in Brisbane, Australia on 5-10 August 2012.

This super symposium constitutes a collection of related symposia with the following themes:

Geoscience Spatial Data Infrastructure: Symposia for regional geoscience information activities and developments from Oceania, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. The latest news from geoscience-related Spatial Data Infrastructure development around the world, with particular reference to the pan-European INSPIRE initiative and SDI, the North American GIN and Geoconnections initiatives and the Australian AuScope project.

Information Management - Interoperability and Standards: Geoscience information management best practise and standards for digital and analogue data; thesauri, dictionaries, vocabularies, ontologies and semantics. Development and application of information exchange formats underpinning interoperability (GeoSciML, GML, EarthResourceML, OGC and other standards), mapping data models to standards; successes, best practise and lessons learnt.

Delivery, dissemination and exploitation of geoscience data and information: Strategic and technical progress, developments and plans from the OneGeology Global and OneGeology Europe initiatives. The creation of information and knowledge from geoscience data to address societal needs and create societal impacts and benefits; intellectual property and digital rights management in the digital era. Developments and best practise in the delivery of dynamic and static data and information.

Tools - software, hardware, open source: Information technology challenges and solutions in the geosciences; data management and assimilation on the petabyte scale; high performance computing, cloud and grid technologies in the geosciences. Digital mapping techniques and methodologies, digital data capture and digital workflows from field to output; digital cartography techniques and standard.

Model fusion, visualisation, exploration and 3D & 4-D modeling: Progress and developments in linking process and time-dependent models across the environmental science disciplines towards the development of predictive environmental modelling platforms. 2-, 3-, 4- and n-D geoscience information, modelling and immersive visualisation systems; error and uncertainty in such systems; deployment of such systems in geological surveys and agencies.

Mathematical Geosciences: Applications of geomathematical analysis and modelling in the field of resource exploration. New advances and methodological challenges in the analysis of spatial, time-dependent and compositional geoscience data. Application of geostatistical and geomathematical methodologies and tools to the interpretation of geochemical data, remotely sensed data, rock anisotropy, and climate data.

Start planning now-it looks like it will be a defining event for the international geoscience informatics community.

See you in Minneapolis!
