We are pleased to host the 2014 conference in the Dutch Caribbean!

Objectives of URISA's Caribbean GIS Conference:
  •     To inform broad cross-section of Caribbean users about GIS technology and applications
  •     To share experiences regarding GIS implementation and management issues
  •     To establish new relationships with the vendor/consultant community
  •     To provide workshops and sessions that are application driven, and are relevant to the   Caribbean community of GIS users
  •     To foster a Caribbean GIS network
  •     To assess the state of readiness of national and regional Spatial Data Infrastructures
  •     To act on directives from the High Level Meetings held over the past several years, fostering executive support for GIS
The conference program is developed through a Call for Presentations. The committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, complete sessions, panel discussions and lightning talks and has proposed a long list of suggested topics for consideration, from "Big data to support planning and development" to "Environmental monitoring and analysis".Interested individuals are encouraged to review the suggested topics list and consider submitting an abstract.
