CalGIS 2020 Workshop and Presentation Proposals Invited

The California URISA Chapters and the California Geographic Information Association (CGIA) are pleased to invite workshop and presentation proposals for CalGIS 2020 February 9-11, 2020 at the Hilton Long Beach. The CalGIS 2020 educational program is developed through a peer review of submissions received.

Workshop Proposals: Full-day and half-day workshops are invited at all levels of expertise, from beginner to expert. Learning objectives and takeaways are important components of proposals, along with a course outline, any pre-requisites or knowledge required, and instructor biographies. Some suggested workshop topics include:

Data Quality Management/Metadata/Best Practices

Leadership and Management

Professional Development & Certification

Open Source or Commercial Geospatial Applications

Ensuring Map and App Accessibility for Persons with Disabilities

Use of UAVs/Drones

Cartography

URISA Certified Workshops

Other topics of interest to the community

Workshop proposals are due on or before September 23, 2019.

Presentation Proposals: The agenda is developed by reviewing submissions received through the Call for Presentations. The 2020 Planning Committee welcomes the submission of individual papers, complete sessions, mini-workshops, and panel discussions. We welcome topics of interest at all levels, from beginner to expert. All proposals received will be reviewed and considered for the program.

Presentation Format:

• Complete session—Comprised of one subject covered by one or more presenters. The expectation is that the depth and complexity of the issue merits the longer time. A complete session is 90 minutes in length.

• Panel discussion —A panel is a 60-90 minute presentation which encourages interaction and discussion between the panelists and the audience. Panel presentations should include at least three panelists all speaking on aspects of a particular topic.

• Mini-workshop—A 90-minute seminar, forum, or tutorial presented by an individual or small team on a particular topic. Topics could range from a technical “how-to” to policy and governance.

• Single presentation—individual presentation that will be scheduled on its own. Each presenter is allotted approximately 25 minutes, including questions from the attendees.

Presentation proposals are due on or before September 23, 2019.
