Education Summit @ Esri UC
July 7-10, 2018 | Marriott Marquis & Marina
Building Bridges
Join us for the 2018 Education Summit @ Esri UC, where we will celebrate the work our community is doing to help build bridges in the classroom, in their communities, and around the globe. This year, the conference will highlight presentations showing how GIS is being used in education to connect people together, break down barriers, and shape our future.
Join us to exchange ideas and best practices with leading educators and administrators. Participating in the conference will connect you with others who share your professional interests. Hands-on training will help you keep your edge. Your involvement will help make it the premier event for those advancing the use of GIS in education.

Saturday and Sunday July 7-8 will include plenary sessions and lightning talks related to the conference theme and other topics.

Deadline to submit abstracts is December 1, 2017
