Call for Presentations

The 12th Annual Central Florida GIS Workshop will be here before you know it. This year will be bigger and better than ever and we’re planning to have several interesting Program twists so we hope you can join us. As excited as we are about the program planning thus far, we still need your involvement. You are invited to submit abstracts for possible presentation at this year’s Central Florida GIS Workshop to be held at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, 10 - 11 September, 2018. Early submission is highly recommended. If we’ve already discussed with you “rolling over” your presentation from last year due to the Hurricane Irma cancellation, we already have you on our list to consider.

The final deadline for abstract submission is July 1st 2018 and this date will not be extended.

Suggested topics for the 2018 conference include:
GIS in Education, Multi – tiered Governmental or Organizational Collaborative Efforts / Data Sharing, Planning and Land Use, GIS Management , Public Works, Conservation / Environmental Management, Economic Development, Land Records / Land Management, Public Safety / Emergency Management / Homeland Security / Public Health, Transportation / Logistics / Routing, Utilities - Water / Wastewater / Electric / Stormwater, GPS Integration, General Interest GIS (You Use GIS for What?)

The final session tracks as always will depend upon the accepted abstracts. The two day Central Florida GIS Workshop provides a great opportunity to share useful information and your valuable experiences and lessons learned with your peers and of course for you to earn CEUs, AICP credits and GISP points.

Presentations should ideally fit into a ½ hour time block which will includes time for questions. A limited number of 60 minute educational sessions will be allowed. Please provide the general topic heading you believe your presentation best belongs in, your proposed presentation title, a short (200-300 word maximum) abstract of your presentation, your name and credentials (AICP, GISP, etc., as you want it shown in the Program), a brief 75 word or less bio, affiliation, phone number, and email address. Selected presenters will be notified by July 15th and all presenters must be registered for the Workshop by August 15th. Note that registration will open in early April and early registration will close in early July.
