The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) continues to prepare for its Annual Conference 27, set for April 25-28, 2004, at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, Wash. One of the premier geospatial events of the year, this year's conference will follow the theme "Information, Strategy, Vision . . . Building Performance for a New Age."

GITA's annual conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the latest industry developments through more than 85 paper presentations, 15 knowledge immersion seminars, and an 80,000-square-foot exhibition hall-all in the uniquely unbiased format for which GITA is known.

Two educational tracks-one on critical infrastructure protection and another on federal geospatial strategies-are new to GITA's annual conference this year.

Additional educational opportunities will abound at Annual Conference 27. Informative panel discussions will provide in-depth examinations of topics like offshore job outsourcing and using geospatial information to maintain public health. The popular "birds of a feather" forums allow users of geospatial technology to network and discuss issues in a free exchange of information.

Annual Conference 27 will also feature the most event-packed Wednesday in the history of the event, including 50 paper presentations, sessions focused on international geospatial innovations, and a panel discussion on homeland security hosted by the U.S Department of Homeland Security.
