Sixth GIS Symposium on Thursday, November 19

The Washington University GIS Symposium will be held on Thursday, November 19th and features presentations and discussion on technical, conceptual, and aesthetic applications of GIS technology.

This year's keynote speakers are WUSM faculty Dr. Alexis M. Elward, M.D., M.P.H. and Dr. Min Lian, M.D., PhD speaking on their work with GIS and infectious diseases. The speakers have extensive experience in using GIS to gain insight into pandemics such as the H1N1 influenza and West Nile virus. Their research interests implement several GIS concepts such as spatial statistics, multilevel modeling and temporal variations.

This year's event will feature technical sessions in the afternoon covering topics of interest to beginning and experienced GIS practitioners alike. Some sessions will include hands-on exercises to allow participants to gain valuable experience while learning new skills. All sessions will be held in the GIS Teaching Laboratory in the Earth and Planetary Sciences building, room 308.

In conjunction with the GIS Symposium, a poster session will be hosted by the library in the Earth and Planetary Science building just west of Whitaker Hall. Exhibits show how students are applying GIS technology in their research. Submissions are currently being accepted and prizes are awarded for outstanding entries. If you have a project that includes GIS technology, please consider submitting a poster to Cheryl Morton (935-4148).

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required.
