Call for Papers

Creating a Brighter Future

You’re invited to exchange ideas and best practices with fellow GIS educators and administrators at the 2016 Esri Education GIS Conference in San Diego, California. Participating in the conference will connect you with others who share your professional interests, making it the premier thought-leadership event for those involved in GIS education. Technical sessions and hands-on workshops help you keep your edge.

This year’s conference theme is “Creating a brighter future.” Creativity is both satisfying on a personal level and vital for societies responding to change.  More than ever, the ability to create something new is a skill to be cultivated in all people, at all levels of education, in all disciplines.  The 2016 Education GIS Conference celebrates those who imagine and build solutions that apply geography for a brighter future.

Saturday and Sunday June 25-26 will include plenary sessions and lightning talks related to the conference theme and other topics. You’re welcome to propose your contribution by November 16, 2015.

The Education GIS Conference will continue on Tuesday, June 28 with self-organized “unconference” sessions, special interest group meetings, and a special symposium on GIS in science.

We are no longer accepting abstracts.  The submission deadline for abstracts has passed.
