Established in 1993, the GISRUK conference series is the UK's national GIS research conference and is primarily aimed at the academic community. Each annual conference attracts delegates from all parts of the world from disciplines including geography, computer science, planning, archaeology, geology, geomatics and engineering. The GISRUK conferences aim to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK and provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS research. They also provide a forum for the discussion of research ideas, promote collaboration amongst researchers from diverse disciplines and offer postgraduate students the opportunity to showcase their work in an international context. So if you supervise research by PhD students or researchers please persuade them to contribute; if you are a postgraduate in a field relating to GIS you are most welcome to present at GISRUK 2015.
In recognition of the recently funded £6M+ ESRC
