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.
