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.
