7th Annual Seminar on Spatial Information Science and Technology

(ASSIST 2011)

Friday 30th September 2011, Hong Kong


You are cordially invited to participate in the 7th of this annual seminar series, the impetus of which is to provide a forum for all participants working in the broad field of Spatial Information Science and Technology to showcase the work they are doing.


Unlike other conferences and symposia, the aim of ASSIST is to provide a friendly and relaxed atmosphere that will allow participants to gain an understanding of what is currently being done in Hong Kong and the neighbour regions, to exchange ideas, and establish new relationships. We hope that you can join us in making this a successful event.
