The theme for this year's GeoForum is the Geospatial Working Group's proposed vision and the strategic direction for the provision of geo-spatial services and facilities across the UK academic section. With this in mind, the final session of the GeoForum will provide time to discuss the future of geospatial services provision in the light of the GWG's proposed strategy. If you have questions about such matters, please bring them with you. There will also be a chance to submit questions about the proposed Vision itself on Friday 15th June.
