Marathon Data Systems to Host 21st Annual European Conference for ESRI Users (ESRI)

ESRI Director to Discuss New Features in ArcGIS 9.2

August 29, 2006 -- Redlands, California—Organized by the local ESRI distributor, Marathon Data Systems, the 21st European Conference for ESRI Users (EUC) will be held in Athens, Greece, November 6–8, 2006. The conference returns to the Greek capital after a 13-year hiatus with the provocative theme "Discover the Power of History and GIS." The Hilton Hotel will be the setting for this event, which is expected to attract more than 1,000 participants.

The program will consist of an opening day presentation with speeches by Jack Dangermond, president of ESRI, who will share his vision on the status of geographic information system (GIS) technology now and in the future, and David Maguire, ESRI director of products and international, who will discuss the latest features in the 9.2 release of ArcGIS, which include such innovative features as advanced support for CAD projects, enhanced cartographic design tools, and sophisticated capabilities for image processing and analysis.

The Honorable Jeremy Harris, former mayor of the city of Honolulu, Hawaii, will deliver the keynote address. Other distinguished speakers will make subsequent presentations including professor Roger Tomlinson, the "father" of GIS, who will conduct a workshop for GIS managers.

The second and third days of the conference will primarily be filled with technical workshops and many parallel sessions combined in several tracks. The tracks will focus on utilities/energy, transportation and logistics, cadastres, national mapping agencies, agriculture, defense, education, physical planning, and e-government.

An exhibition with more than 30 business partner booths and a poster session will complete this event. Training courses about the latest ESRI products will be provided after the conference.

"It will not be difficult to entertain the participants in Athens, which underwent a huge facelift for the 2004 Olympics," says Adonis Kontos, president of Marathon Data Systems. "Antiquities and modern architecture can now be admired side by side, and the new underground transportation system makes it easy to get around."
