GISRUK 2021 Call for Papers - NOW CLOSED

Free and open online conference 13th-16th April 2021

We are pleased to announce the 29th Annual GIS Research UK (GISRUK) Conference, which will take place as a fully online event from Tuesday 13th April to Friday 16th April 2021. The whole conference will be fully open and free (£0) and is hosted by Cardiff University. The call for abstract submissions is now closed.

Information on how to register for the conference and an outline of the conference programme will be made available at the start of March.

GISRUK is the largest academic conference in Geographic Information Science in the UK. Since 1993, GISRUK has attracted international researchers and practitioners in GIS and cognate fields, including geography, computer science, data science, and urban planning to share the latest advances in spatial computing and analysis.

The conference will cover all aspects of theoretical and applied geographical information science, but this year we will also have special sessions for papers which focus on aspects of the COVID19 pandemic, including ways of mapping the spread of the disease and spatially analysing the variation in its impact on such things as mobility, social inequalities and the outcomes of interventions such as stay at home orders.

Conference proceedings of all accepted papers will be made available online
