Energy and Infrastructure (Sprache: Englisch)
Today, it is impossible to imagine energy and infrastructure management without GIS. In two sessions, Netzgesellschaften in der Energiewende and Renewable Energy, technical experts will discuss solutions, current applications, and future challenges.

Netzgesellschaften in der Energiewende (Sprache: Deutsch)
Raum 11, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Dr. Martin Scheu, BTC AG, and Gerhard Hartema, Esri Deutschland GmbH

Renewable Energy (Sprache: Englisch)
Raum 3, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Chrystelle Ourzik, Esri

Land Use and Environmental Protection (Sprache: Englisch)
Land management and environmental protection are traditional GIS application fields. This is where the complete range of GIS comes to light: topics range from land use and administration, property and intelligent forestry management, timber logistics, and precision farming to environmental protection in the Middle East. Learn how GIS is used in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) regions to create transparency, citizen involvement, and the sustainable development of the environment.

Land Use and Land Administration
Raum 2, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Nick Land, Esri

Environmental Protection I
Raum 2, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Matthias Bluhm, Esri Deutschland GmbH

Environmental Protection II
Raum 2, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Guenther Pichler, Esri

E-Government and Open Data (Sprache: Englisch)
E-government is virtually impossible to implement without spatial data infrastructures. In turn, spatial data infrastructures require content, preferably in the form of open data, supplemented by dynamic and up-to-date remote sensing data and other sources as well. Representatives from Africa, Scandinavia, and Eastern and Central Europe will present their approaches and discuss with the attendees.

Spatial Data Infrastructures and Environment
Raum 4, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Guenther Pichler, Esri

Open Data and Content
Raum 4, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Jan Willem van Eck, Esri Nederland B.V.

Smart Cities (Sprache: Englisch)
Today, 50 percent of the global population lives in urban centers. Soon, this number will increase to 75 percent. This requires smart urban planning to ensure that cities remain or become attractive places to live. In this context, geographic information systems show their many applications, for example, 3D city planning, transportation, mobility, and police use. At the same time, the use of GIS at airports and seaports and for purposes of internal security also plays an important role in the so-called Smart City Management. Experts from the entire EMEA region will present their approaches and answer questions in three panels.

3D City Planning
Raum 11, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Prof. Dr. Jörg Schaller, Esri Deutschland GmbH

Raum 12, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Ian Koeppel, Esri

Raum 12, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Wojtek Gawecki, Esri

National Security (Sprache: Englisch)
National security has many aspects. It ranges from disaster management, disaster precaution, and radiation protection to earthquake warnings and the fight against epidemics. Experts from science and industry will present their approaches and solutions. The current state of research will be highlighted.

Disaster Management
Raum 5, 9:00 - 10:15 Uhr
Moderation: Claus-Dietrich Werner, Esri Deutschland GmbH

Outreach (Sprache: Englisch)
Successful disaster management depends on outside aid, cooperation, preparation, education, and the availability of modern technologies as well as immediate aid provided on location. The provision of aid is efficiently coordinated using local data collected, for example, through crowdsourcing, and with remote sensing. Regarding the refugee problem, cross-border analyses of migration issues, causes, and their geographic relevance are also required. Representatives of nongovernmental organizations and the United Nations as well as scientists will be engaged in these issues together with the participants.

Aid and Development
Raum 5, 10:45 - 12:00 Uhr
Moderation: Claus-Dietrich Werner, Esri Deutschland GmbH
