Spatial Information Day is the spatial sciences conference that started in South Australia in 2000. Its purpose is to give individuals and organisations the platform to showcase their innovative spatial projects and technologies to hundreds of their peers in a relaxed and friendly environment.
How and Why Did SIDx Begin?
The original goal of the SIDx pioneers, the Spatial Information Committee (SICOM), was to develop an effective spatial information communication strategy extending across state and local government, industry, academia, and the wider spatial community.
There was no regular forum in South Australia for exchanging information between members of the spatial community. The idea of a regular seminar (dubbed SICOM Spatial Information Seminar) was born.
Various industry bodies have contributed to SID over the years, including SICOM, AURISA, SSI, SSSI, SIBA and BuildSA. A key to the ongoing success of SID is that the conference aims to be inclusive of all industry bodies.
Is SIDx For Me?
SIDx is attended by a diverse range of people. We have students, graduates, young professionals, senior professionals, executives and company representatives from government, academia, industries, and businesses. We are confident you will fit in.
Why Should I Attend SIDx?
In addition to the ample networking opportunities, you get to learn the latest techniques and theories from professionals, and the latest innovative products from companies. We believe you will get excellent value for the cost of your ticket.
Who Organises SIDx?
A group of volunteers runs the show. We love what we do. We challenge ourselves to be innovative, and every year we continue to rethink every aspect of the conference. We are committed to deliver the best conference experience for you.
