To the GEOBIA community,

GEOBIA 2016 will be the sixth biannual, international meeting of its kind. The previous meetings were held in Salzburg (2006), Calgary (2008), Ghent (2010), and Rio de Janeiro (2012). With the approach of GEOBIA 2014 it is time to start the process of selecting the GEOBIA 2016 hosts.

With this announcement we would like to invite candidates who are interested to host GEOBIA 2016. Therefore, if you are interested in organizing the next GEOBIA conference, please send us a message titled ‘CANDIDATE FOR GEOBIA 2016’ no later than May 16. In your message the following information should be included:

  • ♦ the place you intend to host the conference;
  • ♦ the institute(s) that will take part in the organization, and
  • ♦ a preliminary list of names to be included in the Organizing Committee.

In addition, candidates should be able to give a 10 min presentation to the executive committee in a special session that will take place on the first day of GEOBIA 2014. During the short presentation the candidates should explain the reason they are interested in holding the next conference and should provide information about financial support, speaking venues, ability/facilities for workshops, field trips, accommodation, catering, as well as other related information.

The final decision will be made by the organizers of the previous conferences, and will be announced during the GEOBIA 2014 closure session.

We look forward to seeing you in Thessaloniki!
