S+SNZ Conference 2024 @ Napier War Memorial Centre, Napier, New Zealand

S+SNZ Conference 2024 @ Napier War Memorial Centre, Napier, New Zealand

The annual conference of Survey and Spatial New Zealand (S+SNZ) will take place in August in Napier, on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island.

Napier was the epicentre of destruction wrought by Cyclone Gabrielle in 2023, so the theme for the 2024 event is ‘Looking Ahead in the Heartland,’ which S+SNZ says, refers “not just to the optimism and resilience of provincial New Zealand, but also provides an opportunity to discuss approaches to the challenges of climate change and disaster recovery around the country”.

Super-early bird registration is now open.

Advancing Earth Observation Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The second Advancing Earth Observation Forum will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The five-day event will attract delegates across a broad spectrum of applications, sensors and interests, including industry, research, defence, government, students and end-users.

The biennial Forum was created to enable the Earth observation (EO) community to communicate, coordinate, collaborate and collectively assess the state of EO in the Australian and Asia-Pacific region.

AEO24 will build on the momentum generated at the inaugural AEO Forum held in Brisbane in 2022, bringing together all sectors involved in EO to propel the sector forward to meet the growing international demand for EO.
