  • Organization Name
  • Complete address, phone, and email information
  • Abstract (600 characters or fewer, including spaces) (Do not include information in your abstract that will not be in your presentation.)

All papers and presentations must be noncommercial. At no time is it permissible for presenters to use their time slot to advertise or promote a product, service, or organization.

Frequently asked questions

Presentations can range from 5-minute Lightning Talks to 25-minute presentations. If selected, you will be notified of your presentation length.

Our committee will evaluate each abstract and make selections based on topic, content, and time availability. All authors will be notified after the selection process.

Presenters will be provided with presentation information as well as their time slot and instructions. During the event, Esri staff will help facilitate the session with you and the other presenters.

Presentations opportunities are open to any member of the Esri user community.

No, product promotion is prohibited. While we understand you have products and services to sell, we would like these sessions to be inspiring, informative, and educational rather than a series of exhibit booth sales demonstrations.
