Tribal/Indigenous GIS Programs at ESRI User Conference!!
A few weeks back I announced the development of new ESRI industry track dedicated to the use of GIS in Indian Country and by Indigenous Communities around the globe. I'm very pleased to announce that that is now official and it's time to begin soliciting abstracts for the 2009 ESRI International User Conference! As a new track it's very important we get a strong start with lots of abstracts submitted for potential speakers for next year's conference. Even if you are not positive you will be able to attend, please submit an abstract if there is a chance you will attend and would be willing to share your GIS experiences with other Tribal / Indigenous attendees at the conference. The ESRI International User Conference is the largest GIS gathering in the world with over 14,00 attendees. If you have not attended before it is an amazing event with something for everyone regardless of your level of expertise with GIS.
Please click http://tinyurl.com/4flnwm and then "Submit an Abstract". The deadline to submit a track is currently October 17th so if you could take a few minutes and submit an abstract it would be a great help.
Please be sure you place your paper under our new track which can be found under the science and modeling theme: TRI Tribal/Indigenous GIS Programs
