If your presentation is accepted by the conference selection committee, you will be notified by email before the end of January 2018, and your presentation will be assigned to a specific moderated session in the program.
Please be sure to fill out all required fields below (indicated with an asterisk *). All presentations time slots are 30 minutes. But there are opportunities to make a longer (60 minute) presentations (with special permission) for holding panel discussions. Be sure to select the appropriate time option below.
Finally, please be sure to hit the [DONE] button to submit your completed abstract. Note, you can also submit more than one abstract for consideration, but do not combine them - please make each as a separate abstract submission.
Additional Presentation Information and Guidelines: Our annual conference brings together professionals from across Indiana to share their knowledge and experience. Our 2018 conference theme is Why GIS? There are so many ways to answer this question. Please submit a presentation proposal that highlights your ideas, analysis, results, projects, programs, applications, successes, or challenges in showing how GIS helps us understand Indiana and the world around us.
All presentations must be non-commercial, with the purpose of each Session to educate fellow attendees. At no time is it permissible for a presenter to use his/her time slot to advertise or promote a product, service, or company.
As always, IGIC requires that all presenters register for the conference. Acceptance as a presenter does not register you for the conference, but we do give a registration discount to our speakers! If you are making multiple presentations you still only receive one speaker discount. Except for panels, each presentation can have no more than two speakers with both eligible to receive the speaker discount rate.
A Windows laptop, projector with standard AV setup, and WiFi internet will be provided for every session. If you have special requirements for your presentation, please fill out the special requirements section in your submission.
IGIC will be collecting copies of your final presentations at the Conference to post on the IGIC website for use by our members.
