GIS in Action Joint Survey Conference – Request for Program Content

GIS in Action Joint Survey Conference – Request for Program Content

WE REALLY NEED YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE SPRING CONFERENCE!

SO MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR MARCH 13 AND 14, BUT IN THE MEANTIME, SEND ME YOUR ABSTRACTS OR IDEAS FOR PROGRAM CONTENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

Sorry for shouting. But this year's conference is a rare opportunity for us to collaborate not only with URISA as in the past, but also with the Professional Land Surveyors of Oregon and we really want to put together a strong program. Because we are collaborating the planning schedule is accelerated and we need to have a rough draft of the program mostly in place by the beginning of December. We do not need all session details then, but do need a solid framework.

The GIS in Action component of the conference will be a two day program. The first day will be technical sessions focused primarily on GIS and remote sensing. The second day will be a shared program with the surveyors with a focus on collaboration between the different professions. While the first day technical sessions primarily focus on the GIS and remote sensing content similar to past conferences, we certainly would want to include any sessions that would be relevant to the surveyors as we want to try to encourage as many of them as possible to also attend the "GIS in Action" day as well as the shared day.

So --- PLEASE HELP!

Abstracts are welcome, but we are also looking for people who want to moderate or put together a session, people who are willing to chase down some sessions or even just those of you have some really good leads or ideas that we can follow up on.

Thanks for your help and I think we can all look forward to an exceptional Spring Conference.
