CalGIS 2013 Presentation Opportunities Announced

October 18, 2012 (Des Plaines, IL) -- The four California URISA Chapters, along with the California Geographic Information Association (CGIA), are pleased to present the 19th Annual CalGIS Conference taking place April 15-17, 2013 in Long Beach. The deadline for abstract submissions (and also for registration at the super-early discounted rate) is November 1.

The CalGIS 2013 Conference Committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, complete sessions, luncheon presentations, panels, posters and lightning talks within these overall program tracks/themes (note that all abstracts received will be reviewed and considered for the conference program regardless of the list below):

  • Geospatial Technologies – This track will focus on GIS technology and innovations. Topics in this track could include: software, web mapping, programming, automation, databases, tools, customization and similar technologies. 
  • Ports, Transportation and Logistics – This track encompasses presentations with a nod to topics of local (and statewide) interest.  The Port of Long Beach is a major player in the area as well as highway, rail and air hubs. Security and risk assessment topics are also welcome.
  • Education/Certification/Training/Mentoring – This track includes presentations focused on GIS education and skills development.  Topics could include GIS education in K-12 and Higher Education environments as well as professional education and certification (e.g. GISCI – GISP, Esri Certification, ASPRS Certification as examples of professional development). Other topics may include job skills (DOL Competency Model) and industry/agency needs and training for both students and continuing professionals.
  • Water Resources/Marine – Consider this track for presentations focused on statewide and local water issues in both freshwater and marine environments. With Southern California being both a major importer of water as well as having a major coastal/marine connection, this track should have particular significance and relevance for attendees.
  • Government/ Non-Profit – This track will focus on examples and applications of the use of GIS in Government and non-profit sectors.  Sub-tracks focusing on public safety, public health, community planning, etc. will be of particular interest.

Melisa Caric Lee, GISP, President of Compass Rose GIS and 2013 Conference Chair, noted, “CalGIS always offers an exciting mix of technical workshops, presentations, and networking opportunities. GIS professionals at all levels are invited to share ideas and solve problems together. CalGIS is the place to create life-long partnerships and friendships alike! Please join us at the 19th Annual California GIS Conference in beautiful Long Beach, CA. We hope to see you there!"
