The deadline for paper submissions has passed, but you can register for the conference until 23rd March 2015.
If you have had a paper accepted, the deadline for changes is also 23rd March.
If you are presenting a paper, please prepare a presentation that is no longer than 15 minutes. This will allow a few minutes for questions. If you have electronic slides, these can be uploaded on the day. The presentation computers will have internet access (barring any unexpected failures).
If you are preparing a poster, it will need to fit on a poster board that is A0 size portrait. So your poster can either be A0 portrait size, or A1 landscape (or smaller of course).
We welcome colleagues to the 23rd GIS Research UK (GISRUK) conference. The GISRUK conference series is the UK’s national GIS research conference, established in 1993. GISRUK conferences attract delegates from all parts of the UK, together with the European Union and North America and from disciplines including Geography, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and Engineering.
#GISRUK2015 will be hosted by the University of Leeds’ esteemed School of Geography in the Faculty of Environment. The conference will take place on the 15th - 17th April 2015.
We invite submission of extended abstracts (up to 1500 words). All abstracts will be peer reviewed; accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings and some will have the opportunity to be written up as full papers and submitted to a special issue of Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy.
We also invite the submission of posters. These will be displayed during the conference and there will be a special poster session for authors to briefly present their poster.
Notification of acceptance: February 2015.
