Presentation Proposals Invited for GIS-Pro 2021 in Baltimore

URISA is pleased to invite presentation proposals for GIS-Pro 2021 in Baltimore. The conference, taking place October 3-6, 2021, will bring together GIS professionals to present, discuss, analyze, and share their experiences, insights, and solutions. Help us get the dialogue going! Showcase your expertise, collaborate with peers, and share your stories with an international community. Presenters at all stages of their careers are invited to submit. All proposals will be considered.

Important Note: Of course the health and safety of URISA members, leaders, and staff remains of utmost importance. If pandemic health and safety concerns have been minimized (or eliminated), we all hope to meet in Baltimore in October for URISA’s 59th Annual Conference, GIS-Pro 2021. We will certainly pivot to virtual delivery if the situation demands it. When submitting a presentation proposal, please indicate on the form if you are willing to deliver your presentation virtually if the conference must shift to a virtual format.

Presentation Topics to Consider

The Conference Planning Committee has provided the following list to consider with subtopics further detailed online within each category.

• GIS Leadership & Management

• Community Resiliency & Sustainability

• Equity & Social Justice Implications of GIS

• GIS Supporting Health & Human Services

• Data Management & Analysis

• Geospatial Technology Innovations

• Students and Young Professionals – Shaping the Future of GIS

• Next Generation 9-1-1

• GIS Role in the Census and Redistricting

The list is not meant to be restrictive, but is provided to stimulate ideas. Propose ideas geared to GIS beginners, mid-career managers, or the leaders in the field. Discuss your success stories, your challenges, or even your failures. All proposals received will be reviewed and considered for the program.
