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

AIMS National Conference 2023 @ Hyatt Regency Sydney
Sep 13 – Sep 15 all-day
AIMS National Conference 2023 @ Hyatt Regency Sydney

The Australian Institute of Mine Surveyors (AIMS) National Conference 2023 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Sydney from 13 to 15 September 2023. This is the premier event on the AIMS calendar and should not be missed, especially with more than 20 sponsors in attendance showcasing the latest equipment and technology.

The conference’s keynote speaker will be Peter Baines, OAM, one of Australia’s most effective ‘socialprenuers’. A former police officer, he is the founder of the well-known charity ‘Hands Across the Water,’ and as such has created opportunities for hundreds of children in Thailand.

Peter’s humanitarian efforts have been recognised with significant national and international awards. In January 2014, he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his International Humanitarian work. In 2016, he received the Most Admirable Order of Direkgunabhorn awarded by the King of Thailand for his devotional services to the Kingdom of Thailand.

A powerful keynote speaker, Peter’s presentations take his audience from laughter to tears as he recounts his story and delivers the lessons he has learned by managing some of the world’s most devastating crises. His tales of the way in which he has contributed to the lives of many less fortunate people in the world, and the realisation of his personal dream are absolutely inspiring.
