Call for abstracts for WYOPASS/WyGEO conference (Deadline Aug. 24)

The Wyoming Planning Association (WYOPASS) and the Wyoming Geospatial Organization (WyGEO) are seeking technical sessions to be presented at a joint Fall Conference. This year’s event will take place October 17th -19th in Douglas, Wyoming. Over 175 participants including planning professionals, GIS professionals, consultants, exhibitors, students and elected officials are anticipated. The theme of this year’s conference is “Where Planners and GIS Professionals Meet.” The event is intended to encourage networking and collaboration between two statewide organizations that often work together. The goal of the conference is to help attendees better understand historical planning aspects, learn about current planning issues, prepare for future planning issues, learn about the latest and greatest advancements in GIS and associated technologies, further themselves professionally with intensive workshops and training sessions and to network with your peers from across the state and build connections that will help further your career. Individual tracks are still evolving but generally will be divided into three categories including: Basic Planning and GIS Principles; Present Issues and Trends; and Future Technology/Solutions. We ask that presentations fit into one of these three tracks. Feel free to contact us with any session proposals and we will try to work your session in. We ask that sessions generally be 1 – 1.25 hours in length and if planning-related, contain content to be eligible for CM Credits. If GIS-related, training sessions offered will count towards GISP certification. Please plan your presentation accordingly, allowing time for questions. There will be ten to eleven presentations in each track with up to three sessions and workshops running concurrently.
