All the spatial cognoscenti will be making their way to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, on 13 and 14 September 2012, for the Queensland Surveying and Spatial Conference.
Workshops on 13th September will range from hands-on learning experiences to brainstorming future scenarios. Three streams of technical sessions on Friday 14th will inform, stimulate and inspire you to be ready for all the new developments in the spatial world.
The conference will focus on emerging trends from the wider user community and industry that enable us to succeed in an online interoperable world. Specifically, it will address surveying and spatial information topics for:
- Open source projects
- Open software, interfaces and web services
- Open data access
The conference will be held at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Southbank, a great location for exploring this fascinating precinct. Do think of making a long weekend of it, bringing the family to enjoy an event at the Performing Arts Centre, visiting the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), taking the kids to the Southbank Beach, and exploring the many eateries of all descriptions.
So, mark it on the calendar now! There’s plenty of reasonably priced accommodation in South Brisbane and West End – just a stone’s throw from the BCEC.
