We are sending a reminder that the Program Committee for the upcoming 2015 NC GIS Conference is asking for your presentation ideas, abstracts, proposals, and suggestions as we plan the conference program. We have received some excellent submissions so far, but welcome more.
The deadline we set is August 31, and that’s still firm. But the truth is that we will be meeting again in early August, and the sooner you can get your submissions to us, the better. We won’t say it will definitely increase your chances of being accepted because we will consider everything that comes in prior to the Aug. 31 deadline. But it will greatly help the program committee to have your submissions as early as possible as we work through our planning process. (In other words, submitting early is a way to get on our good side.)
Conference dates – February 26-27, 2015. CURISA workshops are on the 25th.
Location: Raleigh Convention Center
Website: Almost ready. Will be http://www.ncgisconference.com/. Meanwhile, if you want to get a sense of past conferences, go to http://www.ncgicc.net/CurrentActivities/NCGISConference/tabid/158/Default.aspx.
Please submit presentation abstracts, informal proposals, ideas, and suggestions to http://go.ncsu.edu/ncgisconf_ideas. You can suggest yourself or someone else as the presenter. Multiple submissions are welcome. And as in the past, presenters will receive complimentary (no cost) registration for the conference.
We want to emphasize that the committee is working very carefully to compile a program that is well balanced among the many GIS related topics relevant for our anticipated audience. We are asking for your help so we don’t overlook something or someone that we didn’t know about which would be beneficial. Unfortunately we can’t include everything, but we promise you will not be disappointed in the final program.
Attention folks in the higher-education community: We are not soliciting academic abstracts through a separate process this time. Instead, please submit your abstracts for full consideration using the same form linked above. The graduate student awards process will continue as in the past, with further details forthcoming.
Thank you once again,
Jeff Essic, Judy Johnson, Tim Johnson
