It gives us great pleasure to welcome all delegates to the 2012 Queensland Surveying and Spatial Conference. The theme of this year’s conference – “The future of surveying and spatial science is Open”, reflects on the many different trends and technologies that are reshaping our profession and our place in society. Openness has historically been a feature of progressive societies at times when great advances in learning and understanding of our world have occurred. Working towards the goal of being more open and collaborative creates greater efficiency in our work, more positive outcomes and better flexibility and agility in responding to our increasingly changing world. Being open means that we stay relevant as a profession and are able to influence the current and future actions and directions of society for the benefit of all.
A great deal of hard work has been done by the SSSI Queensland staff, by the organising and programming committees and by those people presenting technical papers and facilitating workshops. Without their efforts there is no conference, but without delegates there cannot be a successful conference outcome.
We look forward to seeing you at the QSSC 2012!
