We are pleased to invite you to attend the 20th annual GIS Research UK (GISRUK). This year the conference will be held from Wednesday 11th to Friday 13th April 2012, hosted by Lancaster University. The conference will follow its usual format of pre-conference workshops (starting on 10th April), plenary sessions from invited keynote speakers, and oral presentation of papers in a series of parallel themed sessions. A full social programme will also feature during the conference.

Conference themes:
  • Environmental Geoinformatics
  • Open GIS
  • Urban GIS
  • Mining Social Media
  • Qualitative GIS
  • Spatial Ecology
  • Spatial Statistics
  • Social and Historic
  • Landscape Visibility and Visualisation
  • Geospatial Distribution and Forecasting

Established in 1993, the GISRUK conference series is the UK's national GIS research conference and is primarily aimed at the academic community. Each annual conference attracts delegates from all parts of the world from disciplines including geography, computer science, planning, archaeology, geology, geomatics and engineering. The GISRUK conferences aim to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK and provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS research. They also provide a forum for the discussion of research ideas, promote collaboration amongst researchers from diverse disciplines and offer postgraduate students the opportunity to showcase their work in an international context. So if you supervise research by PhD students or researchers please persuade them to contribute; if you are a postgraduate in a field relating to GIS you are most welcome to present at GISRUK 2012.

The conference will be proceeded by a Open Source GeoSpatial software workshop and a Young Researchers Forum commencing on Tuesday 10th April 2012.

We are pleased to confirm that the keynote speakers for this year’s conference will be:
  • Pete Atkinson, University of Southampton, UK
  • Mei-Po Kwan, Ohio State University, USA
  • Tyler Mitchell, Executive Director, OSGeo, USA
