2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

December 6-9, 2019 Xiamen, China


IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Geospatial Big Data Processing (IEEE CIGBD)

The rapid development of computational intelligence and machine learning has had enormous impact on processing and interpretation of remotely sensed data. Geospatial Big Data, which contain Geospatial and location references, includes data from sensing devices, sensor networks, Internet of Things systems, social media and networking, etc. This symposium is to serve as an international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners to present advanced research in computational intelligence with a focus on innovative applications to in geospatial big data (GBA) processing. This symposium seeks contribution on the latest developments and emerging research in all aspects of Geospatial Big Data Processing.
