We would appreciate very much if you could forward this message to other colleagues and friends who might be interested in the symposium. Remember that the symposium not only includes oral and poster sessions but also a multi-day field excursion to the most scenic places of the Austrian Hohe Tauern National Park.

The general topics are:
(1) Application of remotely sensed image data (terrestrial, airborne, spaceborne) and other collateral data for information extraction in high mountain areas;
(2) and cartographic representation of this data/information in maps (analogue, digital, line maps, image maps, combined image-line maps, etc.) and GIS-based environments;
(3) and application-oriented analysis.

Emphasis is put on inter-disciplinary:
(a) Persons interested in geosciences (geographers, geologists, geomorphologists, glaciologists, etc.), cartographers, photogrammetrists, remote sensing experts, computer experts, biologists, tourism agents, regional planners, etc.
(b) Give a platform for young scientists (post-graduate students, PhD-students, post-docs, etc.),
(c) Give a formun to decision makers (tourism agents, park managers, regional managers, regional planers, environmental activists) to learn about HMRSC.

Field Excursion:
(i) Come to know an interesting high mountain region.
(ii) Discussion of application oriented projects carried out in this region.
(iii) Field guide, handouts, explanation by experts, usage of image data and maps, in-situ studies.
(iv) Discussion, social contacts, sharing common interests, e.g. high mountain scenery, meeting mountain people, experiencing other cultures, etc.
