Hello everyone,
Welcome to the first Geographic Information System (GIS) Symposium at =
Troy State University (TSU). This symposium represents the first of many =
more to come annual symposiums through the Geomatics Program at TSU.  =
The organizing committee has agreed on the theme for the symposium to be =
"Use of GIS".   The date for the symposium is 19th and 20th May 2004.  =
The registration cost for the symposium is $50. Refer to the symposium's =
website for details  =
http://spectrum.troyst.edu/~kroblee/First%20Annual%20GIS%20Symposium

The deadline for abstracts is 30th Jan 2004.=20

The organizing committee and the Geomatics Program recognize the need to =
have a common forum for presentations and discussions into the use of =
GIS in Alabama, and its neighboring states. The vision of having the =
symposium is to provide an annual forum to have workshops, presentations =
by keynote speakers on specific GIS issues, paper presentations, poster =
presentations, and for the GIS professionals and students to have an =
opportunity to network. The intention of the symposium is in promoting =
and encouraging the presentation of quality research papers in the field =
of spatial information science.

The organizing committee is in the process of inviting the regional =
manager for the South Eastern States from the Environmental Systems =
Research Institute (ESRI) to give a workshop on the status of ArcGIS and =
its future development plans.  This is carded for the 19th May 2004 =
while the 20th May is carded for paper presentations.   Three other =
workshops are being scheduled.  Refer to the symposium's website for =
details  =
http://spectrum.troyst.edu/~kroblee/First%20Annual%20GIS%20Symposium
