A set of GIS conferences, organized by the Geography Department at Fatih University (FU), has provided a forum for many people from different institutions to share ideas and practices. Since they began in 2001, the GIS conferences at FU have featured contributions from universities, state offices, GIS companies, municipalities, high schools, and nonprofit groups. In 2004, the conference expanded to include more paper sessions, a vendor exposition, an expanded poster session, and 'GIS for Teachers'. This study investigates how GIS conferences have contributed to education in Turkey both through publications and the expansion of the network of educators.
Key words: GIS conferences, GIS, education, Turkey.
