Please mark your calendars for the *TWENTY-FIFTH  Annual* *GIS In Action
Conference <http://www.gisinaction.org/>*, hosted by the Columbia River
Region <http://columbia.asprs.org/CRR> of the American Society of

Washington Chapter <http://www.orurisa.org/>* of the Urban and Regional
Information Systems Association (*URISA <http://www.urisa.org/>*).

The conference is being hosted by Portland State University*!*

Each year ASPRS and URISA collaborate to hold this informational conference
on current issues in the Geospatial Information Community. Join us for what
will surely be another successful opportunity to meet with colleagues in
the geospatial industries and organizations, to learn about emerging topics
and recent advances in GIS applications, and to discuss our problems and
solutions together. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to meet
and network with GIS professionals from the region. Find out who is doing
what, and how.


*Preliminary Conference Program


*Here's our conference web site <http://www.gisinaction.org/gis-in-action>.*


*Register <https://gis.mozakdesignvip.com/> now for the upcoming GIS in
Action conference April 17 & 18, 2017 held at Portland State University. *

*Call for Posters!*

Participants will have an opportunity to present a poster about map
topics.   Poster contestants can enter for reasons such as to show their
skills, to learn new skills, or to show their finished project after a long
time of creating.  Posters will be competing in categories for prizes.

Categories are as follows:

   -    Cartographic - The quality of the visual display
   -    Analytic presentation - Communication of meaningful patterns in data
   -    Data Integration - Combining data from different sources
   -    Public Service - Posters that display for the public

To sign up and see more details see http://www.gisinaction.

The deadline to enter is Friday, April 14 at 5 PM.

*Voting will happen on all posters and winners will receive REI gift
certificates. *

*Call for Lightning Talk Presenters!*

Do you have something cool to share with your fellow GIS professionals but
don’t necessarily need a full session to do it?  *GIS In Action* is looking
for 6 presenters for our lunch-time program on  *April 17, 2017.  *Each
presentation can be no more than 5 minutes (yes, there is a timer.)  If
you’ve never seen or been involved in a lightning talk session, they are a
fun, exciting way to get an overview of a variety of interesting work in
the region.

Please submit abstracts (roughly 150 words) directly to Clint Chiavarini,
our Lightning Talk Coordinator, at clinton.chiavarini at oregonmetro.gov by
March 1.

Presenters who are already scheduled for a conference presentation are of
course welcome (and encouraged) to submit for an abbreviated presentation
that will be heard by all of the conference attendees.
