What is SIDx?

SIDx is not a conventional SID conference. This special half-day event is like a mini SID. But we are doing things differently in 2018. 'Tis the time to explore new conference ideas, demonstration spaces for hardware or software, debates, or even any ideas you would like to suggest!

Happy Hour 5–6 pm
APSEA-SA Awards Dinner 6–11 pm


Welcome to the 18th annual Spatial Information Day (SIDx), and the Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards of South Australia (APSEA-SA) Dinner. SIDx is South Australia's premier conference for the geospatial and surveying industry. Join us on Friday, 26 October 2018 at the Hilton Adelaide to learn the latest applications, theories and techniques being applied in surveying, remote sensing, building information modelling (BIM), and geographic information systems (GIS).

Why Attend SIDx and APSEA-SA?


In addition to the professional development and networking opportunities that are open to all levels of the spatial industry (graduates to executives, students to professors, public and private sector), SIDx provides a platform for you to learn from local, interstate and international delegates, speakers and exhibitors.

Value for Money

SIDx and APSEA-SA are organised by passionate volunteers. You pay less and receive more than any other spatial sciences conference in Australia. Any profits are reinvested into the South Australian spatial industry.

Career Starter

SIDx is a once-in-a-year opportunity to discover and network with potential employers in the spatial industry. Visit the Young Professionals booth for career advice.


We pride ourselves to deliver presenters from a range of disciplines. Get inspired from our speakers and apply techniques to your project.

What People Say About Us

A remarkable achievement to package up the talent of speakers and presenters for the day and night. I enjoyed both very much and believe my staff got a great deal from it.
Michael Burdett
South Australia Surveyor–General
I've attended many geospatial conferences around the world, but South Australia's Spatial Information Day has always impressed me with the quality of speakers and professionals willing to share their knowledge and experiences.
Gary Maguire
Former SSSI President
When Kym Nicholson and I commenced SID in the 1990s we had little idea of the conference’s evolution. In 2016 I see an informative and superbly organised event which connects spatial professionals in SA. The conference is reaching beyond SA to other states and, most importantly, it is building bridges to other professions which utilise spatial information.
Associate Professor David Bruce
University of South Australia
This was my third year attending this event and I can say it is truly one of the best run events on the calendar. The local SSSI staff and volunteer committee worked tirelessly in the months, weeks and days leading up to the event and I must congratulate them on yet another great year.
Bernard O'Sullivan
Former SSSI President
