== Equal opportunity ==
We welcome diversity and are striving to offer equal opportunities to all participants and interested parties. We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of age, disability, ethnic or national origin, family circumstances, gender, political beliefs, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex, sexual orientation, and socio economic background.

== Conference series ==
The GISRUK conference series is an international conference which has grown out of the UK's national GIS research conference, established in 1993. We have held the conference at venues in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. GISRUK conferences are primarily aimed at the academic community, but welcomes delegates from government, commercial and other sectors. The conferences attract those interested in Geographical Information Science (GIS) and its applications from all parts of the UK, together with the European Union and beyond. The disciplinary range is broad including, but not limited to, Geography, Environmental Science, Ecology, Computer Science, Planning, Archaeology, Geology, Geomatics and Engineering.

The GISRUK conferences have the following aims:
- to act as a focus for GIS research in the UK, while welcoming researchers from Europe and beyond
- to provide a mechanism for the announcement and publication of GIS research
- to act as an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of research ideas
- to promote active collaboration amongst researchers from diverse parent disciplines
- to provide a framework in which young researchers (including students) can see their work in a national and international context
