Registration Form

WHAT: Technical presentations by Professionals, Educators and Researchers.
This event is an informal opportunity for people who are interested in the topics of GIS, photogrammetry, and remote sensing to learn more about what's going on in our own region in resource management, government, academia, and business. The information exchange is a day-long event in which local practitioners may present a 20-minute talk on one of their current or recent projects. This is also an opportunity to learn new techniques, meet new contacts, and refresh old ones. Projectors and wireless internet connection will be available. Presenters are asked to their keep presentations under 20 minutes to allow for questions and timely proceedings.

Speaker slots will be limited due to the single-day schedule, so get your requests in early to insure your slot. Abstracts are due September 30th, 2011.

In addition to the visual presentations, each speaker will submit a 1-page description of the project and a 1-page profile of their organization (forms are on pages 3 and 4). The 1-page write-ups must be submitted by registration deadline so they can be compiled into a notebook for distribution at the meeting. Lunch and the notebook will be included in the registration fee.

WHO: ASPRS Members and Non-Members interested in expanding their knowledge.
Anyone interested in learning more about GIS, photogrammetry, remote sensing, and related fields or who wish to share information about interesting or unusual projects in these areas are welcome. Please, extend this invitation to your colleagues who work in the areas of GIS, photogrammetry, and remote sensing. No commercial presentations or endorsements are allowed.

We particularly want to encourage non-members to come find out more about ASPRS. As an encouragement, student attendees who wish to join ASPRS the day of the session will have the registration fee waived. In addition, any person or company can sponsor a student by covering the $10 registration fee, so please consider sending them to this session to learn more about our industry and society.
