Purpose: We want to organise an international conference that aims to bring together stakeholders experienced in corporate governance in various sectors of economy and various fields of geodesy, geoinformatics and spatial data industry, from the homeland and from abroad, working in companies, institutions, local government, international organisations and media. Although the sector of geodesy and geoinformatics occupies only a small portion of national economy measured by number of employees or size of assets, its economic, geopolitical and geostrategic implications are comprehensive, all-pervasive and planetary. Recently United Nations General Assembly has adopted First Geospatial Resolution according to which: “The science that supports the precise pinpointing of people and places should be shared more widely“, (the United Nations General Assembly”, March 2015). The statement recognises the importance of a globally coordinated approach to geodesy and geoinformatics.

Aims: The conference follows on from a successful and well attended 1st International Interdisciplinary Scientific Conference, titled „Global Environment, Stakeholders’ Profile and Corporate Governance in Geodesy“ which was held from 3 till 5 October 2014 at the Faculty of Geodesy, University of Zagreb, Croatia. This year’s conference aims at usage of geospatial information in corporate governance and strategic planing in the context of sustainable development. We want to bring together the participants working in various fields of geodetic sector and related sectors, all other sectors of economy and local governments – practitioners, scientists, experts, businessmen, students, all those who need geospatial information in their daily activities.

We want to comprehend together, from various perspectives the following key issues: How are the companies and institutions in the Western Balkan countries coping with tremendous institutional change deriving from the EU Directives? How are they adjusting their corporate governance to a newely risen demands and challenge? What seems to be a problem, and what might be the benefits?

To a significant degree the economic climate in the region is determined by the degree of integration of the Western Balkan states in transnational organizations, NATO and the European Union, in which the states can be classified into three categories: 1. members of both the EU and NATO; 2. members of NATO and EU accession candidates; and 3. countries which do not belong to either alliance.

As stated by the International Monetary Fund’s Analysis dated from March 2015 the Western Balkan countries still lag well behind the New Member States of the European Union in terms of economic transformation and income level. In addition to the structural weaknesses of South-Eastern European economies, the inadequate connections between the countries in the region contribute to the unfavorable investment climate. As some analysts emphasize, the Balkan region is economically more integrated with the EU than within itself. For this reason it is vital to create a free trade zone in South-Eastern Europe, as this will form a market of more than 57 million consumers, which will increase the region’s attractiveness in the eyes of foreign investors. Integrations in South-Eastern Europe should have positive effects on reducing the political risks in the region and, consequently, they would contribute to improving the investment climate

This conference aims to contribute to the development of geospatial domain analysis and better understanding of its operation in a complex global environment, characterized by a high level of interdependence and vunerability between regions. The process of accession of the Western Balkan countries to the European Union has initiated a numerous developmental processes concerning change, accommodation and adjustment of companies and institutions to the EU Directives and international business standards. Although geodesy and geoinformatics are  technical fields, their social importance and usefulness in solving vital social and economic problems of the Republic of Croatia represent a challenge of the present time connecting business practitioners with academic community. The conference intends to draw an attention to importance of case studies for understanding business practices in the Western Balkan countries and their usefulness in solving problems and making well informed decisions.

The key questions appear to be: How, at what speed and in what ways will the stakeholders in the Western Balkan companies and institutions adjust their practices to the global trends that geodetic profession seems to be faced with and to the requirements of modern corporate governance? The conference incites interdisciplinary discourse about those important issues of nowdays. The conference promotes an accountable handling with business information in accordance with international ethical standards and ethical standards of the European Union.

The conference welcomes academic papers and exciting field stories from around the world. We invite contributors who will offer theoretical and methodological analyses of corporate sector, empirical studies and practical solutions from individual companies and institutions.
