Annual 'GIS Update' Conference

Each year we host a one-day conference, which brings together current students with previous graduates and staff, and is regarded as an integral part of the course. The aims of the conference are threefold:

      - Present quality papers on current research together with trends in industry and academia
      - Give students access to those working in the GIS industry to discuss careers and future employment
      - Foster contacts and community between our alumni, to the benefit of current and past students

This conference provides a unique and informal method for students to extend their GIS education and prepare themselves for a career in the field.
