The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.
Introduction to Geographic Knowledge Engineering
Knowledge Systems Institute
Dr. Robert Laurini, presently professor emeritus at INSA, University of Lyon, France, is a well-known specialist in GIS. He has also taught GIS at the University of Maryland, USA, at the IUAV University of Venice, Italy and at several other universities especially in Latin America. He speaks French, English, Italian and Spanish. His present interests are in location-based services, geographic knowledge and territorial intelligence. He is also the founder of «Academics Without Borders» which is a network of academic consultants working for the modernization of higher education institutions in developing countries.
Within the knowledge society, for planning smart cities and smart territories, theoretical background of information technologies must be renovated with the support of knowledge technologies and especially geographic knowledge engineering. Indeed, geographic knowledge engineering, as city or territory infrastructure, by including multidisciplinary knowledge and citizen involvement, allows not only spatial reasoning but also evaluating various scenarios and alternatives for territorial intelligence governance. Will be overall detailled modeling of geographic onjects, relations and rules together gazetteers with geographic ontologies and urban structures.
