The First Eye on Earth User Conference will be held in Dublin on
March 4-6, 2013 and is officially associated with the Irish Presidency of the
Council of the European Union. The conference is organised by the European
Environment Agency and will be opening an exciting week of conferences
addressing environmental, economic and governance issues. Other events include
the Envirofi day conference (6 March), organized by the Joint Research Center
and the imaGIne conference (7-8 March) organized by European Umbrella
organization for Geographic Information.
Situated near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, the Kingdom
of Dublin evolved from the original Viking settlement to become the capital of
the Republic of Ireland. Dublin is traditionally renowned for Guinness, but has
come to be a centre for new technology companies such as Microsoft, Google,
Amazon, Facebook and Twitter. The period of unprecedented economic growth
around the turn of the century led to large redevelopment projects,
specifically in Spencer Dock, where the Convention Centre Dublin is located.
The three conferences will be held in the Convention Centre
Dublin, Ireland. Designed by Pritzker award-winning Irish-born architect Kevin
Roche, The CCD has quickly become a landmark building. Its stunning design
includes a unique glass-fronted atrium running the full height of the building,
which gives visitors panoramic views of the River Liffey, Dublin city centre
and the Wicklow mountains.
At the First Eye on Earth User Conference we hope to inspire new
audiences to participate in and contribute to the Eye on Earth Network through
the use and application of environmental data and information.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin!
