GIS Day at Notre Dame 2019 — Call for Proposals

Author: Jenna Bilinski

Gis Day Rep 2019 01

The Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship, the Center for Research Computing, and the Center for Social Science Research invite you to submit proposals to present at our annual GIS Day symposium.

GIS Day is an annual celebration of geospatial technology and its power to transform and better our lives. It’s an opportunity to discover and understand the benefits of geographic information systems (GIS) and showcase its uses in our community. The symposium will be held November 13 at Hesburgh Library. The event will include workshops, lunch, and lightning presentations.

In a brief presentation, either a talk or poster, demonstrate how GIS contributes to your real-world research and community-based projects that are making a difference in our society. Presentations should be related to GIS in some way (tools, data or visualization), but do not need to be directly methodological.

GIS Day at Notre Dame is open to faculty, staff, postdocs, and students from every discipline. See the 2018 presenters.

Please submit a brief abstract with a title and all author affiliation(s) to by November 1, 2019. Visit our GIS Day website for more information.
