European GIS Education Symposium 2014

The European GIS Education Symposium, EUGISES, is a biennial meeting of educators and researchers of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from Europe and beyond.

This will be the ninth European GIS Education Symposium - EUGISES. Developing upon very successful meetings in the Netherlands (1998), Hungary (2000), Spain (2002), Austria (2004), Poland (2006), Cirencester (2008), Serres (2010) and Leuven (2012), it will come to Cork for 2014. The symposium will be an occasion for all of those interested in the teaching and learning of GIS in Europe (and beyond) to share ideas, best practice, innovations and novel applications. Of particular interest this year will be two hands-on workshops, one led by Google and the other by ESRI UK, that will offer practical introductions to the use of innovative new technologies from these two major players in the field. Delegates will be able to enjoy full technical papers and posters, and more importantly will have the chance to participate in the discussion of presented work.
