The GISRUK conference series is an international conference which has grown out of the UK's national GIS research conference, established in 1993. We have held the conference at venues in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. GISRUK conferences are primarily aimed at the academic community, but welcomes delegates from government, commercial and other sectors. The conferences attract those interested in Geographical Information Science (GIS) and its applications from all parts of the UK, together with the European Union and beyond. The disciplinary range is broad including, but not limited to, Geography, Environmental Science, Ecology, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and Engineering.
