The 2017 Program Committee welcomes and encourages students to share their scholarship during our Symposium. A formal poster session will take place on Tuesday May 23rd during our opening evening reception, and the posters will remain on display throughout the remainder of the Symposium.
Theme and Awards: The theme of our Symposium is CyberGIS and Diverse Partnerships for Geospatial Workforce Development. Posters may describe any GIScience-related research that has been recently completed or is underway. Symposium participants will be asked to vote on the posters whose topic is the strongest representation of the theme in action. Up to 3 eligible students will be selected to receive a $500 scholarship award.
Student Eligibility: All students are eligible to present their poster and share their research at our Symposium, but only students currently enrolled in a UCGIS member institution are eligible to be considered for an award.
Design specifics: Posters should be no more than 32" by 40" in size (may read vertically or horizontally). Addition instructions on how the posters will be displayed is forthcoming.
Submission Instructions and Deadlines: To submit a poster, please complete the poster abstract form no later than Friday April 28, 2017. Emailed submissions or submissions in any other format will not be accepted. Students must be registered Symposium attendees to participate in the poster session.
