URISA is pleased to announce its 60th anniversary conference, GIS-Pro 2022, taking place October 3-6, 2022 in Boise, Idaho. The international conference, which connects GIS professionals at all stages of their careers – from students to members of URISA’s GIS Hall of Fame – will be co-hosted by the Northwest GIS User Group and the Northern Rockies Chapter of URISA.

The planning committee is comprised of volunteers from all three organizations who are developing a conference packed with opportunities to learn, discover solutions, and build valuable professional relationships.

GIS-Pro 2022 will feature pre-conference training and workshops (some two-day courses will begin on October 2), featured keynote speakers, and an abundance of sessions on the GIS topics of utmost importance to the community, from Climate Change and Community Resilience to GIS for Equity and Social Justice and Technology Innovations.

Abstract submissions will be invited through a Call for Presentation Proposals, which will be announced in January. Sponsorship opportunities will also be detailed early next year.

Members of URISA and the Northwest GIS User Group will be able to take advantage of significant registration discounts.
