Abstract Submissions Invited for 20th GIS/CAMA Technologies Conference

Des Plaines, IL, July 8, 2015 — URISA and the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) are pleased to announce the milestone 20th anniversary GIS /CAMA Technologies Conference, February 22-25, 2016 in Savannah, Georgia. The long-running conference attracts professionals in property assessment, tax administration, mapping and information technology and focuses on the integration of GIS and computer-assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) technologies. Interestingly, the very first conference was held in Savannah and the city has been a preferred venue for a number of years.

The conference features an exhibition, pre-conference workshops, keynote speakers and a substantial educational program which is developed through a review of abstract submissions received. The 2016 Conference Committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, complete sessions, panels and lightning talks and has proposed a list of suggested program tracks and topics for consideration (note that all abstracts received will be reviewed and considered for the conference program regardless of the list below). Topics of interest for all levels of expertise, from beginner to expert are welcomed. As always, International topics are encouraged. To celebrate the anniversary of the conference, we'd also like to include a few presentations that explore how a specific technology or topic has developed over the twenty years that this conference has been in existence, while also incorporating a look to the future.
