    The BTAA GIS Conference presented by the BTAA Geospatial Information Network invites proposals for its fourth virtual GIS conference, taking place on Wednesday, November 8th, 2023. The BTAA GIS Conference is intended to promote conversation and collaboration between Big Ten researchers, educators, and students who use geospatial information. It is open to all who wish to attend, including GIS professionals and students who are outside of the Big Ten Academic Alliance.

    The planning committee seeks submissions for presentations, lightning talks and a map gallery. You do not need to be a member of a BTAA organization to present at the conference. We encourage submissions from any discipline and topics that use geospatial information in any format, including but not limited to: agriculture and natural resources; geography; engineering; business; health sciences; humanities; social sciences; GIS education; urban planning and infrastructure; GIS methods; DEIA and social/environmental justice; and the use of UAVs and GIS in academia. Presentations on applied GIS from campus infrastructure and municipal projects are also encouraged.

    Proposals are due by 5pm CST on Monday, October 9th, 2023.
