 2017 is the 21st anniversary of the International GeoComputation Conference Series, which started in Leeds, UK, in 1996.

As this seems like a significant birthday, for the 2017 conference we've decided to return the series to its birthplace, and celebrate the last 21 years of contributions from the GeoComputational community. We'll be reflecting on the past, and looking forward to the future.

In the run-up to the conference, during the 20th year, we'll be putting on some celebratory events, encouraging the community to take stock of how far GeoComp has come, and consider where it might go over the next 20 years. You can find out more about these events on our Other Events page. Do let us know if you run anything locally, nationally, or internationally, and we'll add it to the list.

We'll also be putting on some fun stuff at the conference -- more to come on that -- but in the meantime you can find some of the standard conference dates under 'Key Dates'. See contact details for ways to stay in touch, and to get info on the celebrations as we release it.

We welcome applications and suggestions in any GeoComputational area, new and more established. The main day for workshops will be the 3rd Sept 2017, just before the conference. However, we would also like to run some little mini-hackathon/training session things in some of the breaks/lunches during the rest of the conference, so if anyone has any ideas for short and sweet little interactive training bursts, or other activities that engage people in exciting technologies, please get in touch. All ideas welcome. Please email contact-us@geocomputation.org with proposals.
