BU GIS Conference Submissions

Call for Presentations

In an effort to facilitate and maximize opportunities for discussion and brain-storming amongst participants, we have chosen a work-group format for the conference. The main day of the conference consists of five work-group sessions (two concurrent and one all-group session in the morning, followed by two more concurrent sessions in the afternoon). Each session will feature 45 minutes of presentations and 45 minutes of open discussion organized around a theme. We are seeking 3 presenters and 1 chairperson* for each of the 5 sessions.

  • Session 1 (Concurrent) – Mapping Human Activity – Qualitative Analysis GIS
  • Session 2 (Concurrent) – Quantitative Analysis & Technical Applications of GIS
  • Session 3 (All-Group) – GIS in Pedagogy
  • Session 4 (Concurrent) – GIS in Higher Ed Community Outreach & Service Learning
  • Session 5 (Concurrent) – Software & Data Issues in GIS Instruction

*The chairperson’s role will be to stimulate and guide discussion amongst attendees. If you are interested in serving as a session chairperson, please contact Janine Glathar at jlg046@bucknell.eduor (570) 577-1990

The Map Gallery will be open for the duration of the conference and will feature paper posters and web-based interactive maps.
