Agenda:

INSPIRE Conference 2018, Antwerp, Belgium

Sept. 18, 2018 - Sept. 21, 2018

The 2018 edition of the INSPIRE conference will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, 18-21 September. The motto of this years’ event is INSPIRE users: Make it work together!  

The European INSPIRE Directive leads to a digital highway for sharing information on Europe’s environment. Member states are rapidly extending this network to reach all levels of government and application areas beyond the environment. Now that we have this essential European facility in place, we can exploit it to the full to support the digital transformation of European society. 

The call for submissions is organised in 3 strands

INSPIRE the Users: In this strand special attention goes to inspiring the usage and users of INSPIRE. Both public and private parties are invited to share their experiences with creating applications that benefit from INSPIRE.

Doing it Together: This strand is dedicated to 'cooperation'. We are looking for examples where the cooperation between public and/or private sector organisations and programmes has been successfully developed to support the implementation of INSPIRE.

Making it work: The strand adressess a more technical approach to ‘make it work’. We are calling for submissions where implementation issues have been identified and where the source of the problems has been - or needs to be - addressed (e.g. Simplifications encoding, Automatisations, quality assessment, etc.).
