What Are the Major NYS Conferences in 2013?
Last year, the Association, recognizing that this would be the first time that it had sole responsibility for the State Conference, decided to put all its energies into it and to alternate years between the Conference and the Summit. As a result, there will be no NYS GeoSpatial Summit in 2013. NYGeoCon 2013 will be the only statewide GIS conference in 2013 New York State. DON’T MISS OUT!
For years, the conference used the same format of volunteered speakers sorted into generalized tracks. Conference evaluations indicated that attendees wanted something different with new, “invited” speakers discussing different topics to make the conference more of a learning experience about new technology, software, methodologies, etc. Last year we did that and got many favorable reviews. However, we also were told that attendees wanted the opportunity to see more of what their peers around the state were doing. So, this year we are bringing in a hybrid model in which we will have a number of “invited” speakers discussing new topics on technology and industry directions as well as “volunteered” presentations by your peers in New York.
