International Lidar Mapping Forum Launches Call for Papers Print E-mail
Written by International Lidar Mapping Forum   
Friday, 18 May 2012

The Technical Committee for the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), which is taking place in Denver, USA, February 11-13, 2013, has announced a Call for Papers and invites any interested parties to submit their abstracts by September 28, 2012 online at https://secure.smartregister.co.uk/events/Intelligent-Exhibitions/2013/ILMF-CFP/start.aspx

The ILMF Technical Committee, led by Conference Chairman Alastair MacDonald from TMSI, will peer review each abstract and the final program will be announced in November.

ILMF set a new record for attendees in January 2012, when 773 professionals from 29 different countries turned up in droves for the 12th annual event. This proved once again that LiDAR, in its increasing variety of operational formats either alone or when complementing other technologies, is becoming the technology of choice for fast, accurate and quality geospatial data acquisition. Whether supporting highly detailed 3D urban mapping projects, forestry management, or railroad and power transmission line maintenance programs, LiDAR technology delivers the results needed by today’s demanding geospatial and mapping professionals. 

Conference Chairman, Alastair MacDonald of TMS International, comments: “The quality of the papers presented at ILMF2012 was outstanding. The highly positive reaction to the topics from the delegates, which included many newcomers as end-users of LiDAR data, showed how important and relevant the chosen subjects were to the fast growing LiDAR community.” For a full list of topics, please go to http://www.lidarmap.org/conference/Default.aspx.

Running alongside the conference will once again be the exhibition of more than 50 leading companies expected to demonstrate new LiDAR products and a wide range of new technologies and services. The ILMF welcomes organizations involved in Airborne and Bathymetric LiDAR and Mobile Mapping Systems, including system and component manufacturers, operators, service companies and specialists in data processing, handling and management, to exhibit or sponsor at the ILMF event. Adam Hill from Blue Marble Geographics commented after the last event, “Bottom line - the ILMF has become and will continue to be the premier LiDAR conference event that all organizations in this industry must attend.” For the exhibitor list and more information about exhibiting, please go to http://www.lidarmap.org/exhibition/Default.aspx.

The organizers of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum also organize the European conference that is now in its 3rd year. Based upon the successful 12 year track record of the International LiDAR Mapping Forum (ILMF), coupled with the growing acceptance in Europe of the benefits of LiDAR in low-cost mapping, the European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) was born. http://www.lidarmap.org/ELMF/.

About the LiDAR Mapping Forums
The International and European LiDAR Mapping Forums are the premier global events focused on applying the technology of LiDAR and laser scanning to deliver outside mapping and imaging solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner across a variety of markets. The core component of both events is the conference which introduces the latest concepts from commercial or academic research, leading edge innovations in technologies, improved operating practices, reports on actual project experiences and discusses new applications and markets being driven by the rapid improvements in LiDAR technology. During the conference the programme will focus on the use of LiDAR to support transport, urban modelling, coastal zone mapping, asset management and GIS applications. An international exhibition runs alongside the conferences with exhibitors involved in airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial LiDAR and mobile mapping systems, including system and component manufacturers, operators and service companies.
