Registrations are now open for the 4th Digital Earth Summit, 'Digital Earth and Technology', to be held in Wellington, New Zealand, from 2 to 4 September 2012. The Summit promises to bring the best speakers from both New Zealand and overseas to exchange knowledge and explore technology advancement in this area. The scientific committee invites submissions for the Summit, with all submissions required by the deadline of 15 June 2012.
Prof. Carlo Ratti, Director of SENSEable City Laboratory at MIT has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at the Summit, and the Committee will be announcing further speakers shortly.
