EnviroInfo 2018 is the latest edition of the long standing, globally established interdisciplinary conference series on leading environmental information and latest communication technologies. For the 32nd time, experts and visitors will discuss and learn about the interface of information technology and environment and apply this knowledge in workshops.

This year EnviroInfo has chosen the aforementioned six topics to provide continuity with previous EnviroInfo conferences and to deepen the understanding of the community within the field of environmental informatics. To do so, numerous topics of special interest will be presented, including areas such as disaster management of resilience and public safety, environmental health issues, energy aware software engineering and development and, among many more, sustainable mobility. In the keynote speech, Prof. Dr. Xiaoxiang Zhu will discuss Big Data for 4D Global Urban Mapping.
