Free CASA One Day Conference – April 13th

By February 16, 2010 No Comments

Riding high from a mention on the front page of Engadget, we at CASA at UCL are running a free one day conference on 13th April which will feature the work of our group on projects associated with our research funded by various UK research councils.

The conference is free but you have to register and space is limited.

If you want to come to the one day CASA meeting “Advances in Spatial Analysis & e-Social Science”, then please go to the registration site at and register.

Personally , the du team will be talking about the ‘Geography of Everything’ based around a project we have so far been unable to blog about, its going to be good…
