2020 LA Geospatial Summit Call for Papers and Posters

October 15, 2019

Dear Students,

The 2020 Los Angeles Geospatial Summit is a one-day event for geospatial professionals, faculty, and students in the greater Los Angeles area to explore emerging trends in geospatial science, technology, and applications. Undergraduate and graduate students in GIS, geospatial technologies, and related disciplines at Southern California institutions are invited to present papers and posters.

Students selected for paper presentations will give five-minute lightning talks with three other students per session. Following the presentations, faculty respondents will engage with student presenters and the audience in an open-discussion forum.

Students selected for poster presentations will discuss their work during a dedicated poster session. All presenters will have opportunities to talk with industry professionals during the “knowledge network” lunch time.

The Geospatial Summit program presents industry use cases for how companies across multiple sectors are employing geospatial professionals. Students will gain insights and get career advice on professional pathways.

To apply, submit a 200-word abstract to Dairon Caro at dcaro@usc.edu by Friday, November 22, 2019. Students may submit either paper or poster abstracts for consideration, or both.

The USC Spatial Sciences Institute will notify selected students by Monday, December 9, 2019. If selected, students are required to register at the student rate of $50.
