The organisers of the GEO Business 2015 conference, which will take place in London on 27-28 May 2015, have announced its ‘call for papers.’
GEO Business 2015 offers the opportunity to exchange global information about the latest geospatial technologies and services. The previous conference received over 115 abstracts, and, for GEO Business 2015, the committee welcomes papers which will address the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry.
“Papers could include reporting on recent cutting-edge geospatial projects; approaches to unlock the potential of Big Data for geospatial professionals; smart GIS; data processing, presentation and applications; BIM meets geospatial; survey operations and systems integration; international and local specifications and standards; a focus on geospatial education; location intelligence and emerging technologies; asset management; hydrographic and coastal developments; boundary disputes and legal issues; or a look at geospatial developments around the world and their impact on Europe,” the organisers said in a press release.
Graham Mills, chairman of Technics Group, president of The Survey Association (TSA), and chairman of the GEO 2015 Technical Conference Committee, commented:
”It’s my pleasure to stand as Conference Chairman for GEO Business 2015, especially at a time when we’re on the cusp of great change within our industry. I especially look forward to working alongside an outstanding Conference Technical Committee to review what we hope will be an abundance of abstracts following our call for papers. The aim is to attract work-in-progress reports on all aspects of geospatial technology and applications, with a particular emphasis on papers that address the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry and new approaches to data capture, data analysis and information management.”
Alongside the conference will run an international spatial exhibition – nearly 400m2 bigger than the 2014 event. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to demonstrate their products and services through commercial workshop sessions and an outside demonstration area.
Also at GEO Business 2015 will be a vibrant social programme to maximise possibilities for informal networking, including a gala dinner that was a sell-out at the 2014 show. With so much positive feedback about the launch event, the organisers are expecting an even greater turnout of visitors to GEO Business 2015, surpassing the level of 2014, which achieved over 2000 people attending each day.
