Event The ECO-IMAGINE Thematic Conference: The WaterFront Management and GI

Waterfronts are often subject to high human pressure and support a multitude of uses. A lot of coastal towns developed in a strict interdependence with the sea and their waterfronts are the evidence of their evolution. It is important to remark that the waterfront will be considered its most comprehensive definition, from architectonic projects on specific areas to comprehensive planning interventions that are expected to lead to deep changes also in the organisation and in the socio-economic structure of the surroundings. In this field, the relevant role of GIS in managing the inputs provided by so many different actors, their capability to elaborate adjustments of the programme and of scenarios, according to the evolution of the situation will be emphasised.
After the success obtained in the previous events, a ESRI Award is organised also within this Conference. All the participants interested in applying for the ESRI Award can find detailed information on the ECO-IMAGINE web-site.
Marie Curie grants are available for supporting the participation of early stage and more experienced researchers in the conference. The call for grants and the forms to be filled in are available on the above-mentioned web-site (deadline for application: October 25th, 2006).
