About the conference
Cambridge Conference is a meeting of Chief Executives and senior leaders from national mapping, geospatial and cadastral organisations from around the world.
The programme focuses on the everyday challenges we face:
- Day one – the world changing around us.
- Day two – changes in the geospatial environment.
- Day three – how we can rise to the challenge.
- Day four – visit Ordnance Survey head office and see directly how the organisation is evolving to meet the challenges of a changing world.

Programme 2–6 July 2017
Building on the success of previous conferences, The Cambridge Conference 2017 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. We are grateful to the Advisory Panel – they are listed above.
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.
