GITA Extends Call for Presentations Deadline to August 11

August 5, 2008: Aurora, Colo. — The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) has extended its Call for Presentations deadline to Aug. 11, 2008, for its 2009 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference, slated for April 19-22, at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla. The association extended the deadline because the Call for Presentations process has changed for the 2009 conference.

Potential speakers can visit to access the submission form.

GITA has relaxed the minimum paper requirements for the Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference, as we are sensitive to the time constraints of today’s professionals. Attendee survey results from GITA’s Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference, which was held in Seattle in March 2008, indicate that published papers are highly valued for their detailed content. In a continued effort to provide valuable content, accepted speakers for the 2009 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference must   a) submit a biography  b) submit a two- to four- page executive summary, which will be published in the Conference Proceedings, and  c ) submit a computer-generated presentation. Full paper submittals are still highly regarded and recommended. There is no limit on paper submission size.

Complete information on the abstract submission process and an online submission form is available at
