Here comes the long awaited quick update on the education and research parts of the Europe, Middle East and Africa User Conference (EMEAUC) in Munich. Two weeks before the conference begins – just in time, I think.
Esri Education GIS Conference
This is THE pre-conference you should attend if you are interested in education and research at schools and universities or in environmental and informal education.
- Education Opening Plenary with @daviddibiase, University of Göttingen, and young innovators
- Lightning Talks by users
- Unconference Kick-Off & Discussion
- Technical Workshops for Higher Education and Schools
- and of course networking, networking, networking.
The Unconference will play a big role at the Education GIS Conference. We have received two topics in advance (Citizen Science & GeoGames) and heard rumors that there will be a few more interesting contributions during the conference like Smart Campus, Developing with ArcGIS and OpenStreetMap / Open Data.
On Wednesday everybody has the possibility to join one of our Workshops or the Expert Round Tables and of course the huge Plenary featuring famous speakers.
EMEAUC User Presentations
We have also received high-quality submissions for the Education & Research Track on Thursday during EMEAUC. If you are interested in projects from Africa, in teaching ArcPy and ArcGIS Server on University level, or in Spatial Thinking in Secondary Education, join these sessions.
At the exhibition there will be a ‘Young Innovators and Science Corner’, where interesting projects will be shown. Take some time and explore the possibilities of the ArcGIS Platform.
Register now for the Esri Education GIS Conference from 22-23 October in Munich. For people from educational institutions, we offer a special pricing for the main conference. Hence, it is a good idea to combine the Education GIS Conference with the EMEAUC ticket.
We neither have a harbor nor an Aircraft Carrier (see San Diego Shortlist) but Munich has many, also unexpected things, to offer (see MyMunich).
