URISA is now accepting submissions for the 2011 Student Competition.
Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to showcase their work by participating in the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association 2011 Student Paper and Poster Competition.
PAPERS - Students are invited to submit a paper for a special section of the URISA Journal. The papers will undergo a review process under the direction of the Publications Committee, augmented by the Editor of the URISA Journal. Lead authors of the top three papers would receive an award of a one-year membership in URISA or free registration at the annual URISA conference.
POSTERS - Community college and GIS Certificate students are invited to submit posters. The posters will undergo a review process under the direction of the Publications Committee, augmented by community college instructors. (This category is co-sponsored by the National GeoTech Center.) The top ten posters will receive an award of a one-year membership in URISA and will be recommended for free registration at a regional URISA conference. The URISA Student Competition Committee will review all submissions and the winners will be notified in early August. Winners will be recognized during the awards ceremony at GIS-Pro 2011: URISA's 49th Annual Conference in Indianapolis.
