September 16-19, 2013
Go beyond basic technology and applications and contemplate issues related to policy, standards, GIS leadership and management. GIS-Pro offers a unique multidisciplinary approach, with participation from all levels and agencies of government, academia, consultants, developers, technology providers...so you receive the benefit of a variety of viewpoints and experiences.
Join your colleagues, peers, thinkers and doers from around the world at GIS-Pro, URISA's Annual Conference for GIS Professionals, being presented at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Some recent post-conference feedback includes:
|"For me, every GIS-Pro is like being in an intellectual nuclear reactor, where smart people come into close contact, ideas collide, thought processes accelerate, new ideas are formed, and then those ideas spin off around the world as we return home to shake things up by trying new technology, new applications, new processes, and methodologies. The results are often unexpected and very disruptive! Your bosses and co-workers should be thinking the day that you return to work, ‘…oh no, he/she’s back from that URISA thing! What new ideas does she/he want us to try now?’" - Greg Babinski, GISP, King County GIS Center, Seattle, Washington|
URISA is pleased to announce that GIS-Pro 2013 is co-hosted by the New England Chapter of URISA (NEURISA).
Presentations - The conference was developed through a peer review of abstracts received through the Call for Presentations. Do you have ideas, research, case studies that you would like to share with your fellow GIS professionals and missed the deadline? To be considered as a late submission for the program, please send your abstract along with complete contact information to Pat Francis at your earliest opportunity.
Student Volunteers - URISA strives to involve students as much as possible in its annual conference. There will be a limited number of opportunities to attend the conference through a complimentary registration, in return for volunteering (workshop room monitor and/or onsite registration support) at the conference. (Note that travel/lodging is not included.)
Exhibits & Sponsorships - The opportunity for attendees to meet with companies that have the products, tools and services they need to catapult their organizations to the next level is an important part of GIS-Pro 2013. Details coming soon.
