WhereCamp Berlin 2013
June 21, 2013
- June 23, 2013
Location : Berlin, Germany
WhereCamp Berlin is an unconference addressed to everyone who is passionate about geographical things. Within 2 days participants present and bring to discussion topics about maps, social cartography, augmented reality, funding, projects and art focused around location. We invite you to take part at app demos, mapping sessions, hacking and debates about geo stuff. The unconference was inspired by FooCamps and BarCamps and comes in the great tradition of many other WhereCamps around the world.
The idea is to start with a blank program and you post sessions and talk about whatever location topic you want to. Some people put together a great presentation, others host debates and discussion – it’s up to you.
INSPIRE 2013 Conference: Florence, Italy
June 23, 2013
- June 27, 2013
Location : Firenze Fiera Congress & Exhibition Center, Florence, Italy
As much as the Renaissance movement profoundly affected European intellectual life, its influence felt in art, literature, politics, science, religion, etc., so is INSPIRE influencing the way in which information for managing our planet can be shared and served.
Alike the Renaissance movement, INSPIRE is slowly, but steadily spreading over Europe and beyond, with on the way, its principles being debated and implemented.
The aim of this year's INSPIRE Conference is therefore to take stock of this progress. To further exchange views and experiences on how INSPIRE is meeting past and emerging challenges and needs. To identify new opportunities and to finally, reflect collectively on how INSPIRE can further evolve to maximise its benefits for society.
The INSPIRE Conference 2013 will take place from Sunday 23rd - Thursday 27th June 2013 in Florence, Italy.
Please visit the INSPIRE website for conference updates and registration.
Pedagogy meets Big Data and BIM
June 24, 2013
- June 25, 2013
Location : UCL, London, UK
The digital world increasingly collides with the physical environment.
The built environment is increasingly monitored, managed and constructed using integrated data systems. Live data feeds provide 24/7 monitoring of energy use, and movement tracking across our cities.
BIM is gaining ground as a response to developing buildings and infrastructure that are problem free, better matched to purpose and more efficient.
This conference will be an ideal place for you to showcase your views on the integration of BIM and big data into higher education and teaching, and to engage with leading international and UK thinkers.
You will be given the chance to visit the annual Bartlett Summer Show and network with students and colleagues in Architecture, Construction, Energy and Environment, Engineering, Facility Management, Planning, Project Management, Real Estate, Spatial analysis and Urban Design.
Full details of the event schedule can be found through the link below.
Cost: £30 (£60 + dinner)
