GIS/CAMA 2019 Call for Proposals

The educational program is developed through a peer review of submissions received. The members of the Conference Committee spend countless hours reviewing, debating and discussing submissions. They will collaboratively develop the conference educational program during an in-person meeting in late October. We expect to have the full conference program details published shortly thereafter. 

Why should you present?

  • Get recognized for your achievements and enhance your professional profile.
  • Increase the visibility of your organization and your project.
  • Help somebody else who is facing similar challenges.  
  • Receive valuable Contribution Points toward your GISP certification or renewal.
  • Discuss your work in a meaningful way to a variety of individuals.
  • Receive valuable feedback from your peers. Are you on the right track?

Workshop Proposal Submission Deadline: August 1, 2018 - Sorry, the deadline has passed for workshop proposals


Call for Presentation Proposals - Due October 15, 2018 (slight extension to 9AM CDT on October 22)

The education program is developed by reviewing submissions received through the Call for Presentations. The 2019 Conference Planning Committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, complete sessions, panels, and lightning talks. All abstracts will be reviewed and considered for the educational program. Suggested topics are provided for general reference only. We welcome topics of interest at all levels, from beginner to expert. The list is not meant to be restrictive, but is provided to stimulate ideas. Feel free to think outside the box.  All proposals received will be reviewed and considered for the program.

Suggested Presentation Topics:

  • GIS Technologies
  • Management and Leadership
  • Open Records Issues
  • Parcel/Cadastral Mapping
  • Data Aggregation and Sharing
  • Solutions for Small Jurisdictions
  • Safety in the Field
  • Integrating GIS and CAMA Data
  • Automated Valuation Models
  • Next Generation 911
  • Using Assessor’s CAMA Data & GIS for Emergency Planning and Response
  • Mobile & Cloud Solutions
  • Property Valuation

Presentation Format:

  • Single presentation—individual presentation that will be scheduled with several other presentations to form a cohesive session of 60-90 minutes in length. Each presenter is allotted 15-20 minutes, including questions from the attendees.
  • Complete session—Comprised of one subject covered by one or more presenters. The expectation is that the depth and complexity of the issue merits the longer time. A complete session is 90 minutes in length.
  • Lightning Talks—Short (5 minute) talks on a single subject. Concise and focused with few slides. The best Lightning Talks are entertaining and educational!
  • Panel & Roundtable—A panel or roundtable is a 60-90 minute presentation which encourages interaction and discussion between the panelists and the audience. Panel presentations should include at least three panelists all speaking on aspects of a particular topic.

Presentation Proposal Submission Deadline: October 15, 2018 (slight extension to 9AM CDT on October 22)

Important Notes:

  • Presentations cannot be sales pitches or commercials. Presentation submissions by industry representatives must include a co-presenter who is a user.  The focus must be on education and not selling a product a service.  There will be a separate Technology Showcase track for exhibitors.
  • All accepted presenters must submit either a formal paper (preferred but not required) or presentation with notes (i.e. PowerPoint/Prezi) during the conference for inclusion in the conference proceedings. Your session moderator will collect the papers/presentations during the conference on a thumb drive.
  • To accommodate conference management, presenters are expected to meet deadlines. The conference utilizes a Sched App for the online publication of the event schedule, individual presentations, speaker biographies, exhibitor profiles and attendee networking. Presenters will receive instructions to upload their biographies and engage with the community upon acceptance.
  • Breakout session rooms will be moderated and equipped a screen, projector, and cables to plug into the presenters’ laptop (it is the responsibility of the presenter to verify their laptop’s compatibility with provided cables). A PowerPoint Conference Slide Template will be distributed to all presenters, even if you only use it for your presentation title and name.
  • All accepted presenters must register and pay the conference registration fee. Acceptance as a presenter does not register you for the conference — registration fees are required.
