Mapping nations: The way ahead

Royal Holloway University, London, Great Britain

Guest speakers

Cambridge Conference 2020 will consider the role of quality geospatial information in creating a sustainable world for all.

We'll look at potential solutions to the challenges we face from changing economies, societies and environments. We'll collaboratively build ideas to help national mapping, geospatial and cadastral agencies deliver the infrastructure, data and services needed to support nations over the next decade.

Programme 2020

Conference Objective
Building on the success of previous conferences, Cambridge Conference 2020 will examine the drivers that face the world over the next decades and enable leaders to consider how national spatial data infrastructures and National Mapping and Geospatial Agencies (NMGA) will have to adapt to contribute fully to our changing societies.

Speakers are leaders in their field, from government, academia and industry.  The selection of speakers has been set to meet the subject matter that the Cambridge Conference Advisory Panel is keen to cover.  Some speakers are listed as ‘invited’ – if they become unavailable or unable to attend, then speakers covering similar subjects will be invited.

The programme is designed to maximise the opportunity to engage with colleagues both during the day and the customary wide-ranging social programme that introduces us to some of Oxford’s great treasures.
