The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by DBLP, Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index, EI and SCOPUS.

This workshop tackles modelling implications in geomatics with the aim of helping researchers and practitioners to make informed modelling decisions. A broad range of available modelling solutions underlying Land Change simulations will be presented. Special emphasis will be placed on scenario building methods. The workshop is structured in three parts; the first part will address concepts and methods applied in Land Change modelling. The aim is to review similarities and differences among models. The second part will cover a number of methodological developments followed by a broad and representative range of case studies undertaken by a large panel of international research groups. The third part summarizes the most commonly adopted modelling software, their functionality and main characteristics.
