The organizers of GEO Business 2016 have issued a call for abstracts for the 2016 conference, which will be held May 25–26 at the Business Design Centre in London, according to a news release.

The conference committee is seeking revolutionary and thought-provoking abstracts that “truly demonstrate the remarkable impact geospatial technologies and solutions are having on our global environment.” Over the two-day conference, expert presenters will explore how geospatial solutions have enabled projects to run more efficiently, ensuring that they are delivered on time, whilst saving money and reducing risk, organizers said.

Topics include:

  • Geospatial Economic Efficiency – case studies are welcomed that show how significant cost-savings were made following the implementation of geospatial technology.
  • Geospatial Infrastructure – with more building recently promised by the government, papers are invited showing how geospatial technology is key to efficient infrastructure solutions.
  • Geospatial Innovation – with geo-technologies being implemented in more and more industries case studies should explore new and innovative solutions.
  • Geospatial Sustainability – with sustainability becoming more crucial to business practices, examples should show how geospatial technology supports ecological monitoring and management.

Abstracts are due before Jan. 22, 2016. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the technical conference committee, including Ian Bush, conference chairman.

“On behalf of my fellow committee members, it gives me great pleasure to welcome interested parties to submit an abstract for the GEO Business 2016 Call for Papers, Bush says. “We look forward to receiving thought provoking abstracts from all corners of the industry and formulating an exciting program that will educate, entertain and entice delegates from around the globe.”

Along with the conference will be an exhibition showcasing 200 of the most innovative international geospatial companies, GEO Business says, and a full schedule of workshop sessions.

The full conference program will be launched in March 2016.
