July 17-18 conference hosts highly regarded speakers in a panel discussion.

Laser-Scan of Cambridge, UK, announced a host of industry specialists for its upcoming User & Partner Conference next month.

A new feature at this year's conference is a panel discussion. Drawing on the list of highly regarded speakers, Laser-Scan has compiled a panel to debate the issues surrounding enterprise spatial data. The discussion will be fueled by the panelists' experiences as well as questions from delegates. Taking part in the panel are Adena Schutzberg from GIS Monitor, Mike Turnill from Oracle, Guenther Pichler from Open GIS Consortium and Steven Ramage from Laser-Scan. Not only are the speakers in the spotlight at the 2003 User & Partner Conference, Laser-Scan is also putting its directors in the hotseat for a Q&A session.

As always, Laser-Scan is encouraging delegates to interact with its products as much as possible with a series of live demonstrations and hands-on workshops. Topics covered include spatial data management, Ordnance Survey's PAI programme, generalisation and government solutions.

As its new title suggests, the Laser-Scan User & Partner conference is strongly focused on partners and prospective partners. Many existing partners have been invited to take part, including Autodesk, IGN Belgium, Intergraph, MapInfo and Ordnance Survey. The special partner session is designed to showcase Laser-Scan's achievements with existing partners and to show prospective partners the benefits of the relationship.

The Laser-Scan User & Partner Conference takes place in Cambridge, UK, 17-18 July. To register, click on http://www.laser-scan.com/2003conference/
