Presentation proposals are now being accepted for GIS-Pro 2013: URISA’s 51st Annual Conference for GIS Professionals taking place September 16-19, 2013 in Providence, Rhode Island. All are welcome to submit proposals. There are no membership, certification nor experience requirements, and the presentation opportunities are plentiful… from formal speaking slots and panel discussions to casual luncheon presentations and ignite talks. GIS-Pro 2013 is the perfect venue to share big ideas, solicit feedback, and get noticed.

The GIS-Pro 2013 Conference Committee welcomes a wide range of presentation ideas and has proposed a comprehensive list of suggested topics for consideration, including:
• GIS Return on Investment (ROI): measure it, document it, communicate it
• Geospatial future: an incubator for next generation GIS applications
• How do you identify ‘champions’ in your organization to propel your technology ideas forward?
• How to get the most out of crowd-sourced and volunteered information?
• RFPs that work: tailoring an RFP to encourage the right proposals for the job

The suggested topics list from the committee is extensive. Take some time to review it and develop your own ideas. Just remember to submit via the online abstract form by Monday, March 4, 2013.
