Skidmore College is hosting a GIS conference January 9, 2009, geared towards those of us in colleges and universities. These conferences that Skidmore has put on before are very effective for meeting other geospatial folks in higher education and hearing what your GIS colleagues are doing. I highly recommend this conference. Here is what Skidmore's Alex Chaucer says:
The Skidmore College GIS Center will be hosting a regional GIS conference at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, on Friday, January 9th, 2009. We will be focusing on GIS in the college setting. Some possible topics for presentations/conversation include: GIS and statistics, supporting student and faculty GIS research, community GIS, and creative applications. We also are open to other topics, and if there is something that you think may be a good discussion topic, please let me know.
Please RSVP to Alex Chaucer, achaucer (at) skidmore.edu
