Call for Research: GEOINTegration Summit

Posted on August 6, 2020 with 0 comments

It is a pleasure to invite you to submit your work to the second annual GEOINTegration Summit. This conference is organized by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) and will take place virtually on September 28 – 29, 2020. Read more about the GEOINTegration Summit.

The GEOINTegration Summit will convene academia, industry, and government representatives for a multi-day event focused on professional self-discovery and personal branding, with new geospatial opportunities for collaborations. While innovation has always been at the heart of geospatial intelligence, technological evolution and disruptive events bring numerous challenges, but also unprecedented opportunities to transform the productivity, capacity, and capability of the geospatial workforce, especially in difficult times, which is why our theme this year is “We Are the New Renaissance!”

This is a call for researchers and students to submit their work for consideration in three different capacities: training/demos, lightning talks, and posters. The content of your presentation should be strongly grounded in GEOINT, however may relate to any of the fields that make up the GEOINT community, including geography, GIS, remote sensing, data science, environmental science, computer science, and engineering, among others. Read more about the types of submissions and parameters now.
