CalGIS 2015 Call for Presentations

Dear California GIS Professional:

CalGIS 2015, the 21st Annual California GIS Conference, is happening June 1-3, 2015 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Downtown Sacramento.

If you have never attended a CalGIS conference, I think you would be pleasantly surprised at what a valuable experience it can be. On behalf of the conference committee, I encourage you to consider attending.

The Call for Presentation Abstracts is out and the deadline is February 2.

Participate!  What have you been working on that you would like to share with your GIS colleagues and peers in California? Tips & tricks, research, success stories or cautionary tales?

Participation may come in a variety of formats including:

  •             Map Gallery
  •             Poster Presentation
  •             Lightning Talk
  •             Presentation
  •             Active Learning

Abstracts for presentations are due no later than February 2, 2015. For participation details and an online abstract submission form, visit .

Christina Boggs is the 2015 Conference Chair, so you know it will be, as Christina says, “AWESOME!” The conference committee is hard at work putting together a program of workshops, keynote speakers, exhibits, presentations, and social events that will be inspiring, educational, and fun. Would you like to help out? Send a note to

Many GIS folks around our Golden State have never heard of the CalGIS Conference.  Please help spread the word by forwarding this information on to co-workers, social networking friends, and aspiring GIS professionals (students.)
