We are delighted to be running this collaborative event again and hope that you will be able to join us in Cheltenham for a week of cartography and Society related events. 

The week’s activities begin on Tuesday 6 September with an all day workshop hosted by ESRI before Tom Harper of the British Library will provide an overview through the eyes of the British Libraries map collection. Our popular golf tournament is also played on the Tuesday with a tee time of 13:27.

The BCS – SoC Conference: Mapping at the Edge runs from 7-8 September and will include all our usual activities including an inspirational collection of presentations and workshops, the annual awards ceremony, corporate members exhibition and plenty of opportunity to network with friends and colleagues from across our community.

We do hope you will be able to join us at the event and would appreciate your help in promoting the event to your network to others that maybe interested.

  1. :

    Important event as it brings the UK leaders in our field together. Gets better each year and 2016 was no exception.
    Would suggest encouraging more students to attend and using more modern venues (at least with regards to exhibition/gallery space).
