If you have additional information you’d like to share about your abstract, please include it in the expanded abstract field.
  • Keyword set (list only 3–5 keywords): Keywords are used to organize presentations into appropriate sessions, so choose words that clearly describe the main ideas of your work.

At no time is it permissible for speakers to use their time slot to advertise or promote a product, service, or organization.

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.

Speakers 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 speakers.

Submitting abstracts is open to members 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.
