We are pleased to invite you to attend the 18th annual GIS Research UK (GISRUK). This year the conference is being hosted at University College London (UCL), from Wednesday 14 to Friday 16 April 2010. We look forward to welcoming you to London for what we expect to be a very stimulating conference, covering areas of core geographic information science research as well as applications domains such as crime and health and technological developments in LBS and the geoweb.
UCL’s research mission as a global university is based around a series of Grand Challenges that affect us all, and these will be accommodated in GISRUK 2010. We are also, of course, a university based in London and so want to represent the challenges of a global city and the diversity of GI research problems the city poses.
Our overarching theme this year will therefore be “Global Challenges”. As is usual with GISRUK we welcome papers across the range of contemporary GIS research but we will particularly welcome papers in the following themes:
- Crime and Place
- Environmental Change
- Migration and Identity
- Intelligent Transport
- Public Health and Epidemiology
- Simulation and Modelling
- London as a global city
- The geoweb and neo-geography
- Open GIS and Volunteered Geographic Information
The Call for Papers is open and will close at the end of November 2009.
