Call for Research: GEOINTegration Summit

Call for Research: GEOINTegration Summit

September 8, 2020

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. 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.

Posters: Accepted through September 21.
Posters provide an opportunity for students and researchers to showcase their work within the GEOINT community. Poster submissions can be accompanied by a short, five minute (maximum) pre-recorded video presentation of their work, although this is not required.

Training/demos: Closed.
The purpose of these training sessions is for geospatial intelligence subject matter experts to provide updates on new topics, applications, technology, policy, and tradecraft. All training sessions are learning opportunities for attendees.

Lightning Talks: Closed.
Lightning Talks are an opportunity to provide quick and very focused updates on new topics, applications, technology, policy, and tradecraft. Lightning Talk submissions should focus on GEOINT technology and applications performed by scientists, academics, analysts, or other community professionals.

In order to be considered for participation in one of these events, you must submit:

  • Current resume, headshot, and short bio
  • Abstract with maximum of 250 words.

The deadline for submission is Monday, September 21st, 2020. Please send your submissions to Christine MacKrell at We look forward to receiving your submissions for the GEOINTegration Summit. For any questions, please contact Christine MacKrell at or (703) 314-6137.
