Call for Presentations

IMAGIN's 29th Annual Conference
June 7 to 9, 2020
Kalamazoo Radisson Hotel & Conference Center 
MARCH 13, 2020 at 5 pm
The IMAGIN Conference committee invites your presentation abstract proposals for the 29th Annual IMAGIN Conference in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan.  The conference will bring together your GIS peers from around the great lakes region for presentations, discussions, and networking to build your GIS community.

This year, we are offering three different options for you to choose from when submitting an abstract:

  • Presentation – 25 minutes of focused content about a single topic followed by 5 minutes of Q&A from session attendees.  These are the traditional presentations that have been featured at recent IMAGIN Conferences.
  • Workshop – 1.5-hour session that includes demos and audience interaction.  These workshops about new geospatial technology can focus on hardware, software, apps, etc. that can be applied in any organization.  These workshops are not intended to be a hands-on experience.
  • Coordinated Session – 1.5-hour flexible time for a panel discussion, several topically related presentations, or a troubleshooting session offering discussion about challenges and lessons learned when implementing or using a solution.  Multiple presenters could participate in one of these casual sessions.  In your abstract, please indicate if you intend to form a panel discussion, offer a series of presentations or host a troubleshooting session.
Abstract submission is simple and quick.  To submit an abstract, we simply need to know some basic information about you, a presentation title, and a few sentences about what you intend to present.
