2021 Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop @ Adelaide Convention Centre
Sep 16 all-day
2021 Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The Space & Geospatial Collaborative Workshop will be jointly hosted by the Andy Thomas Space Foundation and the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute in Adelaide the day following the 12th Australian Space Forum and the day before Spatial Information Day.

This inter-disciplinary workshop will provide a unique opportunity for professionals from both space and spatial sectors to:

  • Learn about Australia’s renewed commitment to space technology development
  • Get updates on the requirements and capabilities of the modern spatial information industry using applications such as PNT (positioning, navigation and timing), EO (Earth Observation) and telecommunications
  • Connect and discuss the increasing synergy and collaborative opportunities between the two sectors.

Survey and Spatial NZ conference @ Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua

Survey and Spatial NZ’s 2022 conference will be held from 1 to 3 August at the Novotel Lakeside, Rotorua. The conference is the biggest continuing professional development event of the year for NZ surveying and spatial professionals. It invites sharing of knowledge amongst peers, bringing together networking opportunities for all delegates and is an essential event for professional development and connectivity within the sector.

The choice of Rotorua as the location is apt, given the conference theme of ‘Turning up the Heat’. The organisers aim to stimulate discussion regarding challenges in regional areas, which include climate change and developments outside of Auckland.

14th Australian Space Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The Andy Thomas Space Foundation is looking forward to welcoming a global audience to the 14th Australian Space Forum, which will be held on Tuesday, 25 October 2022 at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia.

Supported by the Australian Space Agency, the South Australian Space Industry Centre and SmartSat CRC, the Forum will provide an opportunity to stimulate ideas, share information about emerging technologies and network with influential space sector leaders and the broader community.

Participants can attend in-person, or virtually through the event’s global interactive platform.

Forum sessions will include international panels covering highly pertinent topics that shape our industry:

Earth Observation: The National Space Mission for Earth Observation is a major investment that will expand Australia’s capability in designing, manufacturing and operating space- and ground-based systems.

Optical Communications: A quantum leap in Australia’s secure and high-bandwidth communications to connect the world and beyond.

Foundation Services Rover: Exploring remote operations and autonomous systems by building on Australian expertise in the resources and mining sectors for the collection of lunar soil (regolith).
