Welcome to the 32nd Annual GIS Research UK Conference. The conference will be hosted at University of Leeds on 9th – 12th April 2024.

GISRUK attracts international researchers and practitioners in GIS and related fields to share and discuss the latest advances in spatial computing and analysis. The work presented at GISRUK covers a range of methodological approaches and application areas, including: geographic data science, geocomputation, applied statistics, geography, health, urban and transport planning, crime science.

We welcome papers covering all aspects of GIS, both methodological and applied. There is also a theme for the 2024 conference – GIS for public good: data, theory, policy – around which keynotes and other activity will be structured.

See the Call for papers for details on how to submit.
