Call For Papers

The Department of Geomatics and Land Management has organised the biennial Advances in Geomatics Research Conference (AGRC) since 2011. The purpose of the conference is to highlight, promote and encourage scholarship in the various Geomatics sub-disciplines e.g., Location-based services, Engineering Surveying, GIS, Remote Sensing, Land Management, integrated spatial planning, etc taking place locally, regionally and internationally. Through the AGRC the academia, researchers and practitioners in the geomatics field in Uganda and the region have been accorded an affordable forum to discuss their work, peer review other researchers work and advance Geomatics Scholarship in the region. Out of the previous conferences, a special issue of the South African Journal of Geomatics was published in 2013 showcasing some of the cutting-edge research papers presented at the 2nd AGRC. The conferences have grown substantially to include summer schools, pre-conference workshops and to attract sponsors including Digital Earth Africa, Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD), SIDA, etc. As part of this growth the 6th AGRC in 2021 included a public dialogue on the Mailo land question in Uganda. The dialogue was well attended both physically and online and included a detailed discussion of the Mailo question in Uganda with proposals on how to solve the landlord-tenant impasse on Mailo land tenure.

The conference invites abstracts covering any of the following topics:
• GIS applications
• Location-based services
• Remote Sensing applications
• Geomatics Professional Standards and Practice
• Geomatics Education
• Spatial Information Management
• Hydrographic Surveying
• Positioning and Measurement
• Engineering and Mining Surveys
• Cadastre and Land Management
• History of Surveying and Measurement
• Cartography
• Integrated spatial planning
• Photogrammetry and LIDAR applications
• Land management

Pre-conference workshops and Tutorials will be conducted from 7th -9th August 2023. selected tutorials and workshops will include
• Introduction to Fit For Purpose Land Administration for Land Professionals
• Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems
• Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) – CORS and its applications
