Climate Change and Disaster Management (CCDM)

The Climate Change and Disaster Management (CCDM) conference is taking place online from 30 November – 4 December 2020. The CCCM consists of three conferences:

The CCDM conference has confirmed keynotes speakers from Australia, and across the globe including USA and Turkey. The conference has been moved to an online format to allow ease of accessibility. Over 40 abstracts have been received and are currently being reviewed. We look forward to finalising a program with current and diverse topics. NEW Tutorials have just been announced! More information about the tutorials can be found here.

For more details please check the CCDM website.


The ISPRS website lists many new virtual conferences; e.g. 5th International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities 2020; the 5th International Conference on Smart City Applications; 23rd ICA Workshop on Map Generalisation and Multiple Representation), so Australians can attend an international conference without having to travel to Europe.
