Proposal Submission Guidelines

AASHTO and the GIS for Transportation Symposium Planning Committee is proud to announce that the most important meeting for the transportation GIS community is moving toward a face-to-face meeting in 2021. We are now accepting abstracts for the in-person meeting. There is a possibility that the 2021 Symposium may transition to a virtual meeting, so we are interested in sessions that can be conducted virtually or pre-recorded. Please keep this in mind as you develop your session.

Abstracts accepted for GIS-T 2020 will be giving a higher priority when building the program.  (Small modifications from last year’s abstract may be allowed).

GIS-T encourages presentations covering completed or ongoing projects, including lessons learned. If your proposal is based on a planned or incomplete project, state this clearly in your abstract. Presenters will be given 25 minutes, and leaving 5 minutes for questions. Submit your proposal as soon as possible through our electronic submission link. 

List only those co-presenters who will be present during the conference. Please list credit for other contributors within the presentation itself.

Requirements:

  • Presenters and co-presenters are required to register for at least one day of the conference.
  • Presentations that do not have a presenter or co-presenter registered 10 business days prior to the conference will be canceled and replaced.
  • No preference will be given to any presenter for particular conference days.

All presentations will be posted on the Conference Web Site (https://gis-t.transportation.org/) following the conference. All presenters acknowledge the GIS-T Task Force’s right to post their presentations. Presentations must be submitted in electronic format to the Symposium Moderator at the time of presentation. The presentation cannot be larger than 7MB.

GIS-T does not have a template for presenters to follow or use in the creation of presentation slides. If you have any question please contact Eric Green, Program Chair, eric.green@uky.edu.

GIS-T 2021 Is Coming!

By General No Comments

AASHTO and the GIS for Transportation Symposium Planning Committee is proud to announce that the most important meeting for the transportation GIS community is moving toward a face-to-face meeting in 2021.

Please note that while we are monitoring the situation in Minneapolis — paying particular attention to travel, and health best practices in an effort to keep attendees safe – it still may not be possible to meet face-to-face. In that case, a decision and announcement will be made in January 2021 to ensure there is enough time to make adjustments to travel plans. The virtual meeting dates will remain the same as the in-person meeting, April 19-22, 2021.

Risk-Free 2021 GIS-T Symposium Registration in the event that the Symposium cancels due to COVID-19

In the event that the 2021 GIS for Transportation Symposium cannot take place in person, the meeting will take place virtually. We have updated our registration, exhibitor and sponsorship terms, please see below:

  • Attendee registrations will automatically transfer over to virtual meeting. Difference in pricing (if any) will be refunded.
  • If you do not wish to participate in the virtual meeting, you will have ten (10) business days to cancel your registration without penalty, after the announcement is made confirming the change to virtual. A full refund will be issued.
  • In the event that the conference is moved to a virtual environment, all sponsors and exhibitors will be transferred to an equivalent sponsorship or exhibitor package to be fulfilled virtually. Exhibitors and sponsors will have ten (10) business days from the date the announcement is made confirming that the conference will be conducted virtually to cancel from the conference without penalty.
