URISA is pleased to announce the Call for Presentations for GIS-Pro 2016: URISA's 54th Annual Conference in Toronto, Ontario. The conference will take place at the Westin Harbour Castle, October 31-November 3, 2016.

The GIS-Pro 2016 Conference Committee invites your presentation proposals. This year’s conference will once again bring together an international audience of your peers to present, discuss, analyze, and share their experiences, insights, solutions and yes, frustrations in the geospatial arena. Help us get the dialogue going. Presenting at GIS-Pro is rarely a one-way process… your presentation will just be the start of the discussion.

There are numerous presentation formats to fit your style...from formal speaking slots and panel discussions to casual luncheon presentations and IGNITE talks. The Conference Committee has provided the following list to consider as possible presentation topics. The list is not meant to be restrictive, but is provided to stimulate ideas. Feel free to think outside the box. Consider innovations, trends, technical and management topics. Propose ideas geared to GIS beginners, mid-career managers or the leaders in the field.

All proposals received will be reviewed and considered for the conference program.
