GISRUK 2021 Call for Papers

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

We are pleased to invite you to submit a 1500 word extended abstract for 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.

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.

We welcome papers covering all aspects of theoretical and applied geographical information science, but this year we will also have a special session 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.

The closing date for abstract submissions is Monday 15th February 2021 using the template which can be downloaded below. Please submit your abstract using the button below, which will direct you to EasyChair, our conference management software. You may have to create an EasyChair account if you do not already have one.
