Newly Launched Seminar Programme at GEO Business 2018 – Call for Abstracts Announced
The organisers of the UK’s largest geospatial event, GEO Business 2018, have issued a call to those working at the cutting edge of geospatial developments to submit their abstracts for a newly launched seminar programme to be held at the Business Design Centre in London, UK from 22 – 23 May 2018.
The GEO Business team are seeking revolutionary and thought provoking abstracts that truly demonstrate the remarkable impact geospatial technologies and solutions are having on our global environment. The brand new seminar programme will run alongside a strategic senior level conference of invited speakers. It will also sit outside the well-established commercial workshop programme which is hosted by exhibitors demonstrating their latest products and services.
Over the two day event, expert presenters will explore how geospatial solutions have enabled projects to run more efficiently, ensuring that they are delivered on time, whilst saving money and reducing risk. The GEO Business team are looking for abstracts within a variety of industry sectors, however abstracts within the following fields are of particular interest: Architecture, Engineering & Construction; Asset Management; Environmental; Heritage; Highways; Instrumentation & Monitoring; Insurance; Proptech and Commercial Property; Rail; Robotics & Automation; Safety & Security; Tunneling & Mining; Utilities and Water.
Abstracts on the following technologies and applications are also of interest (but are not limited to): Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality, BIM; GIS & Big Data; Laser Scanning; Mobile Mapping; Remote Sensing; Smart Cities; Surveying; UAVs and Visualisation.
All interested parties are asked to submit an abstract online at www.GeoBusinessShow.com before the deadline of 29 January 2018.
All the submitted abstracts will be reviewed and the final programme will be launched in March 2018.
GEO Business is designed for everyone involved in the gathering, storing, processing and delivery of geospatial information and the 2018 show is expected to attract over 3000 visitors from more than 50 countries. Incorporating an international trade exhibition, a cutting edge conference, industry focused seminars, live commercial workshops and an innovative programme of social events. The exhibition, seminars and workshops are all free to attend and online registration will open in January 2018.

GEO Business is the UK’s biggest geospatial event for everyone involved in the gathering storing, processing and delivering of geospatial information. Launched in 2014 and organised in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES), the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Survey Association (TSA) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) is an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. ICES is now recognised as the leading chartered professional body for civil engineering surveyors. They have introduced relevant and meaningful competencies for geospatial engineers and commercial managers which make a difference. www.cices.org
The Association for Geographic Information (AGI) exists to represent the interests of the UK’s GI industry; a wide-ranging group of public and private sector organisations, suppliers of GI software, hardware, data and services, consultants, academics and interested individuals. The AGI, by way of its unique membership forum, brings together this previously disparate GI community to share ideas on best practice, experience and innovation, and offers access to unparalleled networking opportunities with significant business benefits. As such it acts on behalf of the community as a whole. Since its formal inception in 1989, it has built up a significant membership base and established itself as the respected voice in GI and is the membership body for everyone with an interest or involvement with GI. http://www.agi.org.uk
RICS – the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – was created in 1868 in the United Kingdom. It received a royal charter in 1881. Their members are known as chartered surveyors, and are recognised by the designation after their name – FRICS (for Fellow of RICS) or MRICS (for Member of RICS). Today we are a global property professional body which aims to: regulate and promote the profession; maintain the highest educational and professional standards; protect clients and consumers through a strict code of ethics; provide impartial advice, analysis and guidance. www.rics.org
The Survey Association, known generally as TSA, is the trade body for commercial survey companies in the UK. The association was formed in 1979 to give a focus for private sector businesses in land and hydrographic survey. It is important to realise, however, that it is not a regulatory body. The role of TSA is to promote best practice amongst its members, provide a forum for members for discussion, debate and continuing professional development and, to the wider audience such as engineers and architects, provide guidance on new methods and techniques and a list of suitably qualified and experienced companies. www.tsa-uk.org.uk/
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) strives to promote and progress civil engineering. ICE was founded in 1818 and was granted a royal charter in 1828 where they declared that their aim was to “foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering”. That is still their aim today and they represent around 80,000 members worldwide. http://www.ice.org.uk/
