We're currently planning two events over the next year in the UK: one on "Women in GeoComp", and another on "Teaching Coding for GeoComputation". We'll try and run these in part online for people outside the UK. If you're interested in the former, please contact Alison Heppenstall. For the latter, please contact Andy Evans.

Other than this page, do see our Contact Info for more ways to stay in touch with what is going on.

18th December 2015: The GeoComputation group at King's College, London, got celebrations off to a great start, with a workshop on "The Future of GeoComputation".

31st August 2016: The King's meeting was followed up by a day of talks and a panel session on the same theme at the Royal Geographical Society annual conference. You can find the abstracts here: Session 1; Session 2; Panel session. Andy didn't get to rant nearly enough, so he wrote an associated blog post.
