Rocket City Geospatial Conference Issues Call for Presentations

Presentations sought for topics related to the tornado outbreak of April 27thand cybersecurity

June 2, 2011 – Huntsville, AL - The fifth annual Rocket City Geospatial Conference has issued a call for presentations inviting geospatial professionals and students to share their efforts illustrating how geographic information system (GIS) technology is being used in their industry or research. The event will also host the Alabama GIS conference. It will attract local and state government professionals and businesses that utilize digital mapping technology and GIS for applications such as environmental protection, economic development, urban planning and critical infrastructure management.

The conference will be held November 15 and 16, 2011 in the Davidson Center for Space Exploration at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  This conference will feature an array of user case studies, technical sessions and vendor presentations through a series of organized tracks.

Because of certain events that have impacted both local and international communities we will have a particular focus on these topics:

  • Emergency Response to the Tornado Outbreak in Northern Alabama
  • Location and Security of the Nation's Nuclear Power Plants
  • Cybersecurity and Geospatial Technology

We are also looking for presentations in these main topic areas:

  • Census 2010 and redistricting
  • Defense and intelligence applications (GEOINT)
  • Next generation E-911
  • Crisis Mapping – Health and human safety during natural and terrorist disasters
  • Remote Sensing – Satellite image analysis and processing
  • Cloud Computing – Geoprocessing in new platform and software as a service environments
  • Pervasiveness of new applications in citizen engagement and authoritative data sources
  • Public safety and law enforcement
  • Transportation
  • Postal addressing

All presentation abstracts should be submitted before September 30.
