The MSc Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Modelling and Management conference is the culmination of the research projects that each of our students have been working on since their arrival in Southampton.

Two international visitors will also be present: Dr Michael Weir from the University of Twente (ITC) and Dr Richard Murphy (University of Sydney). Richard will also be giving a seminar during his stay, probably on Wednesday 21st May (we will provide more details in due course).

Lunch (Foyer, Building 44, Shackleton)


We do hope as many staff and postgraduates as possible will attend. Please note that the talks and mid-morning refreshments will be in Room 1085 in Building 2 (Management/Arts II building), rather than the Shackleton building. There will be a sandwich lunch for the GEM students, supervisors and visitors in the foyer of Building 44 (Shackleton) after the meeting. All are welcome to join us.
