Inaugurated in 1992, the GIS Update one-day conferences are specifically
designed to give you an opportunity
to hear about the latest GIS research at Edinburgh, and particularly
developments and trends in industry. It is an excellent forum to discuss the
world of employment, as they are well attended by past GIS/EO&GM graduates.
Note that GISUpdate is a closed conference, available only to the
current and former students and staff of the School of GeoSciences
(previously Department of Geography) at the University of Edinburgh.
We also extend a warm welcome to confirmed future students (holding offers)
for our cluster of GIS M.Sc. programmes (GIS , GIS & Archaeology, Earth Observation
& Geoinformation Management).
This policy means that speakers can be more candid
than would otherwise be possible, extending the benefit of the conference to
Chatham House Rule
The detailed aims of the conference are three fold:
GIS Update runs every year with the minimum possible administrative overhead,
and this web site is intended to make information provision easier and the
registration process simpler and more efficient for you and for me!
Please use the link below to register in advance, that way we have numbers for catering and
can ensure a badge is available for you on arrival.
Present quality sessions on current research and trends in industry and
Give students access to people working in the GIS industry to discuss careers,
future employment, and how GIS really works in the real world
Maintain contacts with our alumni network, to the benefit of current,
past and future students.
