PLEASE NOTE: There is an Education track at the main NEARC conference (following GIS Educators Day) as well. Presenters can decide which conference they wish to submit a proposal to. In general, education presentations at the main conference should be ones that, while on the topic of education, have significant relevance to the wider professional GIS community. Presentations at GIS Educators Day are directed specifically to the K-12 and higher ed communities.
More information on GIS Educators Day 2012 will be posted on the conference website as it becomes available. Stay tuned!
