Aurora, Colo., Jan. 10, 2007—The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) announced that its Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference (formerly annual conference) will feature 111 sessions focused on 13 infrastructure-related tracks and the Geospatial Dimensions of Emergency Response Symposium. The event is slated for March 9-12, 2008, at the Washington State Trade & Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.
“The compilation of technical sessions and seminars runs the gamut from traditional GIS usage to cutting-edge technology, how-to’s, and the transformation of GIS from an asset management tool to strategic system and protector of worldwide infrastructure,” said Mike Cerkas, 2008 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference chair.
New this year, eleven of the sessions will focus on green GIS, and GITA has made a commitment to “go green” in its conference operations by printing conference materials on recycled paper and encouraging attendees to use recycle bins at the event.
The session track topics are Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse; Data Acquisition and Maintenance; Internet and Web Services; Public Sector; Critical Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Response; Mobile Applications; Operations Management and Damage Prevention; New Technology Directions; Enterprise Architecture and System Integration; Organizational Impacts and Project Management; Planning, Design, and Engineering; and ROI/Business Case.
