User Conference

September 2014 Previous month Next month

We've recently opened up the Call For Papers. Now is the time to get your abstracts in. Don't be intimidated - the entire presentation doesn't need to be finished, just an abstract. Why should you take the time to do this? There are many reasons, but here are the top three:

  • Presenting at the Esri UC is a great way to justify your trip (to San Diego, in the summer).
  • Your paper session is a great way to attract recognition from your peers and the higher-ups.
  • Others will offer valuable feedback that can enhance your work.

Don't wait too long, abstracts are due by October 31. Share your work! Reap the benefits!


Bring it on!

The papers, that is! Your paper, to be specific. This is your time to bask in your own glory, make your mark, be all you can be - and you can make it happen at the Esri UC! The Call for Papers just opened. Don't miss this chance to highlight your work. Submit an abstract before it closes on October 31, 2014.


Why should you present a paper? Being a presenter is a great way to justify your trip; you aren’t just attending the conference – you are the conference. Standing at a podium talking about the specifics of your project, from start to finish including snafus along the way and lessons learned, is a great way to get feedback from your colleagues and bring back fresh ideas.


Never presented before? Afraid of speaking in public? No need to worry – Esri has gifted mentors who will help you through every step of the way.


Are you a seasoned UC paper presenter? Then we cannot wait to hear from you again! Whether it’s a new project, or old project with a new perspective, we want to listen and learn from you.


I think everyone agrees that the backbone of this conference is you. So make this conference what you want it to be. Share your stories, show us your apps, and submit your abstract before it’s too late!
