Conferences are unique opportunities for immersion in an area of interest, direct access to experts, contributions to a field, staying current in an industry, and networking. Generally speaking, the goal of industry conferences is to bring practitioners to problems (generally organized by subject or track) and highlight concepts and solutions.

The Spatial Plexus '12 inaugural conference takes a twist on this paradigm by bringing problems to the practitioner through the reality of intricate and interdependent issues. "Wicked problems" are those difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements. By "inspecting 'wicked problems' with geospatial goggles," complexities and interdependencies can be exposed, better defined, dissected, better managed through the geospatial approach and reassembled for overall improvements.
