The annual EFGS conference is coming to Dublin in 2017!

Co-hosted by Central Statistics Office Ireland and Ordnance Survey Ireland, the Conference will be held in Dublin Castle from November 2-3 2017 and intends to showcase the current work in the integration of statistics and geography.


The EFGS 2017 Conference will be organised under three main themes which reflect the main challenges and opportunities for combining statistical and geospatial information. These are:

  1. The UN Agenda incorporating the UN-GGIM and the Sustainable Development Goals initiatives
  2. Collaboration between the statistical and mapping agencies
  3. Best practice examples of integrating geography with official statistics


The EFGS Committee welcomes papers on any topic covering these particular themes, examples of which include (but are not limited to):

  • Linked Open data
  • Visualisation of statistical outputs
  • Census 2020 geography
  • Big data and Environmental geostatistics

In addition to presentations relating to the above topics there will be keynote speakers as well as panel discussions.
