|You’re invited to the 2020 Victorian Spatial Showcase and eSummit: 18 and 19 November 2020
You’re invited to attend this year’s 2020 Victorian Spatial Showcase and eSummit, hosted by the Surveying & Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI), Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA) and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP)! This new partnership brings together two well known annual events into one festival for the Victorian spatial and surveying sectors.
Join us as we bring together government agencies, industry academics and community spatial enthusiasts to connect and learn more about the innovative spatial data, technology and services that Victoria has to offer. On the agenda is a mix of lightning talks and presentations by a diverse range of industry professionals, interactive sessions, networking opportunities and more.
Spatially enabling the Sustainable Development Goals
This year, we’re going to tackle some of the world’s most complex problems – our 2020 theme is exploring how the spatial industry is enabling the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through innovation. But what are the SDGs you might ask? The 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all UN Member States in 2015. provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call to action by developed and developing countries across the globe.
During the eSummit, the Victorian spatial community will draw on its collective experience to identify opportunities and challenges for us all to achieve these goals.
Call for abstracts
We welcome presentations from spatial and surveying professionals all over the world that align with our theme. Please submit an abstract of the presentation for the eSummit and take note that we encourage audience interaction presentations, e.g. polls and Slido.
The deadline for submission is midday Monday 12 October 2020.
