GISDECO is an international network of GIS experts, planners and project managers engaged in GIS applications in developing countries that provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge about emerging research and practical experiences with GIS-applications by organising seminars and workshops in various countries.  

GISDECO events provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and progress in problem solving for GIS researchers and practitioners working on the problems of GIS technology transfer and spatial analysis applications in developing countries. Participants generally come from developing countries or they are engaged in projects or other activities in developing countries. The general objective of these two broad groups is common, namely to assist the development process and improve the quality of life of those populations who suffer from lagging economic and social development, while safe-guarding the fragility of the bio-physical realm in less developed countries.

From 12-14 September 2013, the Network-Association of European Researchers on Urbanisation in the South (N-AERUS), jointly organized with GISDECO, and hosted by the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-Information Management of the Faculty ITC, University of Twente will host the 14th N-AERUS Conference, entitled:
URBAN FUTURES. Multiple visions, paths and constructions?
