Thank God that has made this success for us to hold the FirstNational Conference on Application of advanced spatial analysismodels (remote sensing and GIS) in land use planningwhich isan effective important step toward the field of science and research. Conference secretariat started its job by receiving more than 150 scientific and technical papers on humanurbanrural,and technical issues via Long-distance and GIS. It was providedby Using advanced techniques for spatial modeling. Finally, 100articles were accepted to be presented as oral, posterand to be printed in the conference papers booklet.

The main goals of the conference agenda include:

To acknowledge latest achievements of researchers in land use planning experiments using RS, GIS

To introduce land use planning by using RS, GIS 

To introduce the research areas and RS, GIS Interdisciplinarytechniques 

To focus on using this technique in regional plans management 

To emphasize the need for the establishment of administrativeunits in the provinces for the use of RS, GIS techniques in landuse planning

It is hoped that results of holding the conference and presentedpapers will have significant influence in addressing the scientific status and strengthening the conduction of research amongresearchers.

In conclusion,it is necessary to appreciate the hard work and assistance of authorities, administratorsconferences sponsors,and especially teachers,staff,and students of remote sensingwho helped us in holding the conference.
