The 5th International Conference of the International Society for Geomorphometry - Geomorphometry 2018 - August 13–17, 2018 in Boulder, CO, USA

15 March 2018 via EasyChair. More information on abstract submission at:

THEMES include but are not limited to:

  • Use of Digital Elevation, Terrain and Surface Models and Canopy Heigh Models in hydrological modeling and biogeography
  • Acquisition and processing of high resolution elevation data collected with LIDAR and photogrammetry (structure from motion)
  • Mapping and analyzing Earth surface at ultra-high resolutions using sUAS (small Unmanned Aerial Systems)
  • New algorithms and software for automated interpretation of digital elevation data
  • Modeling extreme processes and natural hazards on the Earth surface
  • Modeling and analyzing urban topography (3D cities) using lidar or photogrammetry data
  • Multi-scale automated mapping of Earth surface changes
  • Acquisition and analysis of bathymetry data
  • Working with continental-scale high resolution data
  • Simulating changes of the Earth surface relief
  • 3D and 4D dynamics of Earth surface

Peer reviewed proceedings will be published online, with DOIs. One or more special journal issues are planned.
