SID2016-HomepageSpatial Information Day 2016 (SID2016) is the largest one-day surveying and spatial sciences conference in Australia and has just announced an impressive lineup of speakers in a diverse program aimed to educate graduates through to executives.

The annual event is an initiative of the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) and Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA), representing professionals and businesses covering Surveying (land, engineering & mining, hydrographic), Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

SID2016 is open to all industries, government and private, showcasing how spatial technology is being used to create smarter, safer, better connected communities.

The SID2016 program will feature four high-quality keynote speakers across the morning and afternoon sessions. These presentations will demonstrate the enormous scale and diversity of spatial projects today.

Program highlights include:

  • Paul Gray, CEO, Cohda Wireless – Positioning Requirements of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV)
  • Dan Paull, CEO, PSMA Australia – Geoscape – Capturing Australia’s Built Environment
  • Daniel Kruimel, Business Development Manager – SE Asia, AAM – Singapore: Smart City or Smart Nation?
  • John Dalla-Zuanna, The Wet Mules – Cave Exploration & Mapping with The Wet Mules

Sessions across four concurrent streams will cover surveying, environmental applications of GIS, social applications of GIS, data capture from ground to space, GIS asset management and future technology. There is also a dedicated Professional Development stream hosted by the SSSI Young Professionals and Women in Spatial groups.

By popular demand, the majority of concurrent presentations will be short 12 minute “quick fire” format. This encourages, sharp, punchy messaging from speakers, minus the lengthy background information and business promotion.

An Exhibition Hall, with generous breaks and a Happy Hour will provide ample opportunity to meet with colleagues and friends and to engage speakers and exhibitors in deeper conversation.

Finally, the SA Spatial Excellence Awards (SASEA) Dinner will be held in the picturesque Panorama Room overlooking Adelaide Oval and the redevelopment projects along the Adelaide Riverbank, celebrating the achievements of our industries over the past year with awards delivered by the host organisations SIBA and SSSI.
