Future of Place Summit @ Elements Collective, Brisbane

The Future of Place Summit aims to be a day filled with critical discussion, knowledge sharing and networking around the intersection of people, place technology and data.

The event will focus on four themes:

  • Designing for digital lifestyles — A new human-centred planning approach
  • From precinct plans to development reality — The evolving digital and data DNA of urban growth
  • Data-inspired discussions — Tapping into the real voice of the community
  • Streets reimagined — The digital backbone for better experiences

Delegates can take part in person or via Zoom.

12th Australian Space Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre and online

Supported by the Australian Space Agency, the South Australian Space Industry Centre and SmartSat CRC, the 12th Australian Space Forum will provide an opportunity to stimulate ideas, share information about emerging technologies and network with space sector leaders and the broader community.

Participants will be able to attend in-person at the Adelaide Convention Centre in South Australia, or virtually through the event’s global interactive platform.

Forum sessions will include international panels covering the following thematic areas:

  • National and international space trends
  • Moving from cubesats to larger satellites — building Australian expertise and capability
  • Reimagining the social, environmental and economic opportunities enabled by Earth observation technologies
  • On-Earth and off-Earth remote operations, in the context of human exploration as well as applications right here on Earth

Southern Space Symposium @ National Press Club, Canberra

In partnership with the Australian Space Agency, the Space Industry Association of Australia will host the Southern Space Symposium at the National Press Club in Canberra on 29-30 November 2021.

The Southern Space Symposium is the Australian space industry’s flagship annual conference, bringing together space industry experts and decision-makers from across Australia. At a pivotal moment, the Southern Space Symposium will this year bring space industry together with government and parliament for two days in Canberra to help shape the future agenda for Australian space’s aspirations.

Participants will include federal government departments and agencies, international agencies and missions, defence and space prime contractors, listed space companies, academic and research organisations, small and medium enterprises, space start-ups, and individual space professionals.

15th Conference on Spatial Information Theory @ Kobe, Japan

The 15th International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT 2022, will be held in Kobe, Japan, 5 to 9 September, 2022. Established in 1993, the Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT) is a biennial international conference series concerned with theoretical aspects of space and spatial information, aimed at advancing geographic information science and its emerging research frontiers.

The conference offers three (refereed) submission tracks with double-blind reviews: vision papers, full papers, and short papers. Embedded in the conference will also be an on-site mentoring program for doctoral students.

Contributions can cover a broad set of conference-relevant themes such as (but not limited to):

  • activity-based models of spatial knowledge
  • cognitive aspects of geographic information
  • cognitive-behavioural geography, naive geography
  • data-driven spatial information theory
  • geo-ethics and geo-privacy
  • events and processes in geographic space and time
  • geographic information visualisation and geovisual analytics
  • knowledge representation for space and time
  • navigation and wayfinding of sentient beings and robots
  • ontology of space and time
  • place
  • quality and interoperability of geographic information
  • social and cultural organisation of space
  • spatial and temporal language
  • spatial aspects of social networks
  • spatial decision support, impact of model design
  • spatial (digital) humanities
  • theory-driven spatial machine learning, artificial intelligence of space
  • theories on volunteered geographic information
  • theory and practice of spatial and temporal reasoning
  • user interfaces, virtual spaces and collaborative spaces
