The conference venue is TU Delft: 13-15 June 2023 at X (Sports & Culture), Mekelweg 8-10, Delft (Building 38) and on 16 June at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Julianalaan 134, Delft (Building 8), The Netherlands.
Delft University of Technology is a top international university hosting over 27 thousand students, almost 3 thousands PhD candidates, and more than 6 thousand employees. At the TU Delft we use our fascination science, design and technology, along with our expertise and talents to contribute to the challenges facing our world. Think of climate change and the energy transition, but also better and more affordable healthcare, clean water and sanitation. We do this with our research, the development of technological solutions and the education of the engineers of the future.
More than a fifth of our students and more than the half of our scientific staff come from outside of the Netherlands. The TU Delft attaches great value to openness. We are the front runner in the field of open education and science. TU Delft stimulates multidisciplinary team work between colleagues of different scientific disciplines and different university services. The TU Delft also intensively collaborates with other universities (e.g., Erasmus University Rotterdam and the University of Leiden) in the field of education and science. We work in diverse collaboration in the Netherlands, Europe and globally. Scientists also collaborate widely with businesses and societal organisations. Various companies are located on campus and students and scientists receive help with starting and scaling up a knowledge-intensive company.
In Delft we perform research and education on and with geo-information in various places. In the Faculty of Architecture and The Built Environment two groups are spearheading the GI theme:
- The GIS Technology group, which concentrates on the spatial information infrastructure. Central point is the durable geo information that can be shared, re-used, based on joint definitions of data sets and services. Proceeding from technology and technology development the chair aims to contribute to the realisation of a spatial data infrastructure based on vario scale spatiotemporal 2D – 5D models and processes for applications areas like cadastre and real-time GIS.
- The Urban Data Science group focuses on the technologies and governance models underpinning geographical information systems (GIS) and spatial data infrastructures. It aims at designing, developing, and implementing better systems to model (3D) cities, buildings and landscapes, as well as the governance mechanisms employed in concepts such as the ‘open city’ and ‘the city as a service’.
The Faculty of Architecture and The Built Environment is also the home of the MSc. Geomatics for the built environment.
