The open call for presentations for the first major AGI event of the 2014, Geo: The Big 5 Future Cities, closes on midnight Thursday 13 February. The event will be multi-stream. One stream will be focussed on Future Cities, with an additional stream of presentations showcasing a range of best-practice case studies from around Scotland.
Please consider submitting your work for the event – the committee would love to hear from you.
We are delighted to welcome Professor Stewart as a plenary speaker. We will be announcing further programme details, including information about hands-on workshops shortly – make sure you have booked your place!
Possible leakage is one of the issues stalling the development of Carbon Capture and Storage. Over the past four years, the QICS project has investigated the nature of leakage from a CO2 storage site it has quantified the potential environmental impact, tested methods of monitoring and designed improved predictive models.
This seminar will present the results of this research and is particularly aimed at stakeholders including industry, regulators, policy makers and environmental interest groups. Attending the seminar will give you an opportunity to discuss the scale and nature of possible impacts with experts involved in the project and to gain an insight into recommended methods for monitoring storage sites.
Come and visit us at the BGS stand at the Civil Infrastructure & Technology Exhibition 2014.
CITE 2014 will provide the UK s transport, construction, utilities and communications infrastructure sector with a platform to meet, discuss, learn about and progress the critical areas which have been highlighted by the Government as a key area of growth for the UK economy and vital to enable the country to compete effectively in the modern world.
CITE will be co-located with Infrarail – a successful Rail Infrastructure exhibition that has been established for over twenty years.
GEO Business, is a new geospatial event for everyone involved in the gathering, storing, processing and delivering of geospatial information. It will incorporate an international trade exhibition, conference, and a programme of live workshops and demonstrations featuring the technology and services used by those working with spatial data. GEO Business is organised in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), The Survey Association (TSA) and the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), this new launch is the result of an extensive consultation process with industry which has highlighted the need for a joint cooperative event that involves all the major players representing the geospatial community comparisons. BGS will have a stand and run a live workshop session on GeoVisionary: 3D visualisation of large and complex datasets, including voxels, point cloud data and time series.
The Extractive Industry Geology (EIG) Conference is the principal event for sharing knowledge, scientific research and good practice in the field of applied geology within the UK minerals industry. It brings together extractive industry, academia, consultancy and other interest groups.
The next conference will be held from 11th to 14th June 2014 at the University of St. Andrews (Fife, Scotland) and will include 2–days of presentations plus pre- and post-conference field trips. This will be a joint conference with the Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals.
The first call for papers is now out with abstracts due by the end of November 2014 – for further information see the EIG Newsletter.
For further information please contact the EIG conference chairman Clive Mitchell.
BGS will have a stand at this annual trade show and exhibition for the geotechnical industry to provide information on our data products and services for drillers and geotechnical consultants.
BGS will be demonstrating GeoVisionary: 3D software to analyse and interpret large datasets seamlessly (including voxels, point cloud data and time series). This software is the result of collaboration between BGS and Europe s leading virtual reality company, Virtalis Ltd. It is used by many geological surveys and some of the world s largest mining companies for exploration and near-mine geology projects, to help with virtual fieldwork, mining, engineering and environmental monitoring.
