The 2012 Georgia Geospatial Conference is requesting abstracts and posters/map gallery submissions from GIS professionals and students

The Georgia Geospatial Conference of 2012 to be held in Athens, Oct. 16-18 is shaping up to be an excellent event with a variety of subjects, presenters, and exhibits, not to mention numerous networking opportunities. This biennial event is the largest geospatial conference in the state.

By definition a conference is a chance to “confer,” to exchange information, not just receive it. For the conference to be its best, we need participants from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives to share their experiences, so please consider giving a 45-minute breakout session presentation if you are a professional or a 20-minute presentation if you are a student. We are seeking a wide variety of topics, so do not feel like your presentation must be about a major, complex or cutting-edge project. Often a great presentation can just cover a small or simple project approached in a unique or innovative way.

By presenting or displaying your poster/maps, you share your knowledge and lessons learned, but also gain valuable feedback from others. Keep in mind, presenting at the conference can earn you valuable points towards earning or maintaining GISP certification for GIS professions or towards earning Professional Development Hours (PDH) for Surveyors.

If you would like to submit a presentation abstract or poster/map, please go to and click on Participate to access the online submission forms.
