== Conference series ==
The GISRUK conference series is an international conference which has 
grown out of the UK’s national GIS research conference, established in 
1993. We have held the conference at venues in the UK and the Republic 
of Ireland. GISRUK conferences are primarily aimed at the academic 
community, but welcomes delegates from government, commercial and other 
sectors. The conferences attract those interested in Geographical 
Information Science (GIS) and its applications from all parts of the UK, 
together with the European Union and beyond. The disciplinary range is 
broad including, but not limited to, Geography, Environmental Science, 
Ecology, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and 

The GISRUK conferences have the following aims:
- to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK, while welcoming 
researchers from Europe and beyond
- to provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS 
- to act as an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of research ideas
- to promote active collaboration amongst researchers from diverse 
parent disciplines
- to provide a framework in which young researchers (including students) 
can see their work in a national and international context
