URISA hosts an annual Student Competition to encourage students in a variety of academic settings and disciplines to write and publish papers and posters to share with the URISA membership and others in the geospatial technologies industry. The submission may include research projects, case studies, projects, or any type of methodology in which geospatial technology and skills were used or could be used.
All competition winners will receive a certificate signed by the URISA President. Winning submissions will be posted on the URISA website and announced through various industry publications and communications.
The URISA Student Competition Committee will review all submissions and the winners will be notified in early August. Winners will be recognized during the awards ceremony at GIS- Pro 2013: URISA's 51st Annual Conference in Providence, Rhode Island.
Note that submitters do not need to be members of URISA, although URISA encourages all authors to become student members of URISA for only $20 per year.
