The Spatial Ecology & Conservation (SEC3) conference was the third in a unique series of meetings that explore how spatial ecological analyses and associated technologies can be used to underpin conservation action.

The conference was run as a series of eight half-day symposia:
- HELP!! Is our conservation land management actually working?
- Where are we with spatial statistics? A comparative review of core methods and future directions
- Small Unmanned Aerial Systems: bringing high resolution, low cost remote sensing to field ecologists and conservation practitioners
- Big data for big ecology: what do we need to understand about ecological patterns and processes at continental scales?
- Is there safety in numbers? Can we be confident with our Species Distribution Models?
- Online mapping and decision support tools for conservation - current uses and future directions
- Spatial planning for sustainable landscapes: a key role for spatial ecology?
- Seeing the wood for the trees: Object-based Image Analysis to measure habitat condition and change
