GEO Business 2015 launches call for papers

18 September 2014

After the success of the first GEO Business event earlier this year, the organisers have announced the call for papers for the GEO Business 2015 conference, taking place at the Business Design Centre in London from 27-28 May.

GEO Business 2015 offers an opportunity to exchange global information about the latest geospatial technologies and services. The success of the last conference reflected its unique position within the industry; with over 115 abstracts received. For GEO Business 2015, the committee welcomes papers which address the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry. These could include reporting on recent cutting-edge geospatial projects; approaches to unlock the potential of Big Data for geospatial professionals; smart GIS; data processing, presentation and applications; BIM meets geospatial; survey operations and systems integration; international and local specifications and standards; a focus on geospatial education; location intelligence and emerging technologies; asset management; hydrographic and coastal developments; boundary disputes and legal issues; or a look at geospatial developments around the world and their impact on Europe. Abstracts can be submitted online at by 17th December 2014.

Headed up by Graham Mills, Chairman of Technics Group and President of The Survey Association (TSA), the GEO 2015 Technical Conference Committee is made up of leaders from top geospatial organisations. Graham commented: "It's my pleasure to stand as Conference Chairman for GEO Business 2015, especially at a time when we're on the cusp of great change within our industry. I especially look forward to working alongside an outstanding Conference Technical Committee to review what we hope will be an abundance of abstracts following our call for papers. The aim is to attract work-in-progress reports on all aspects of geospatial technology and applications, with a particular emphasis on papers that address the key commercial and technical issues facing the industry and new approaches to data capture, data analysis and information management."

Alongside the conference, GEO Business 2015 will run a dynamic international exhibition - which will be nearly 400m2 bigger than the 2014 event - the response has already been overwhelming with 78% of the exhibitors from the 2014 show signed up again within two weeks. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to demonstrate their products and services through commercial workshop sessions and an outside demonstration area; these sessions were a huge success at the launch event.
