The ASPRS 2011 Annual Conference Preliminary Program is now available for viewing online at www.asprs.org/milwaukee2011. The Annual Conference will be held May 1-5, at the Frontier Airlines Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
With a conference theme of, “Ride on the Geospatial Revolution”, attendees will travel along the geospatial road for the next generation with an outstanding lineup of pre-conference workshops, captivating speakers, 100 plus technical sessions, a new poster session format, student and young professional events and social networking events for everyone.
Kicking off the conference will be Paul Ramsey, co-founder of PostGIS, an open source geospatial database used globally in the geospatial industry. The Conference will also feature an address from incoming ASPRS President Gary Florence. We will then take a moment to look back at our geospatial history with a roundtable discussion led by ASPRS President Carolyn Merry, who will be joined by three esteemed geospatial leaders – Dr. Terry Keating, Dr. Charles Olson, Jr. and Ronald Ondrejka. These gentlemen will all give us an oral history of where the geospatial road has been, where we are now and where we will go in the years to come.
And that’s not all. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the Exhibit Hall with vendors from around the world, and the networking opportunities offered throughout the conference. Early registration runs through April 1, 2011.
