The GIS Research UK (GISRUK)
Home Page

The GISRUK conference series is the UK's national GIS research conference, established in 1993. GISRUK conferences are primarily aimed at the academic community. They attract delegates from all parts of the UK, together with the European Union and North America and from disciplines including Geography, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and Engineering.

The GISRUK conferences have the following aims:

* to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK
* to provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS research
* to act as an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of research ideas
* to promote active collaboration amongst researchers from diverse parent disciplines
* to provide a framework in which postgraduate students can see their work in a national context
