The URISA/NENA Addressing Conference has been re-engineered for 2013 and we're pleased to introduce the Locating The Future Conference taking place November 3-6 in St. Louis, Missouri.
The conference is organized by a volunteer committee of URISA and NENA members (with staff support for all logistical matters).
Presentations - The conference is developed through a peer review of abstracts received through the Call for Presentation Proposals. Start thinking about the ideas, research, case studies that you would like to share at the conference.
Submissions are invited in several formats to fit both your topic and presentation style:
To be considered:
Members of the Locating the Future Program Committee will conduct a peer review of submissions received through the Call for Presentations and will develop the program based upon those submissions.
Proceedings and Speaker Registration
Presenters whose proposals are accepted are expected to submit written papers for publication in the Conference Proceedings. If PowerPoint or slide presentations are submitted for inclusion in the Proceedings, a narrative description must accompany them. The final version of your presentation is due on the day it is presented to attendees at the conference. It can be provided on CD Rom or by thumb drive transfer on site at the conference.
All accepted presenters must register and pay the standard conference registration fee.
The Locating the Future Conference Committee welcomes your presentation ideas and has proposed the following list of suggested topics for your consideration. (Note that all abstracts received will be reviewed and considered for the conference program regardless of the list below...these are just suggestions.)
