October 5, 2017 Previous day Next day
Good day,


The 2018 GIS for Transportation (GIS-T) Symposium will be held from March 19-22 in Little Rock, Arkansas, and once again will feature a Student Presentation Contest.  Undergraduate and graduate GIS students with an interest in transportation applications of GIS-T are encouraged to submit their research in the form of a paper to the GIS-T Symposium's Student Paper review panel.  The contest is designed to encourage university students to develop solutions to current GIS-T issues.  Contestants' submissions will be judged on their ability to develop and document useful, original research based on GIS-T issues and on their ability to present their results in a complete, clear, and well-referenced paper. The winner will receive $100, travel expenses, 4 nights' lodging, and complementary registration to the 2018 GIS-T Symposium to present their paper.


We encourage you to circulate this e-mail to students to may be interested in submitting a paper.  The submission deadline is December 1st, 2017.  Selection of the winner will be made by mid-January, 2018.  Full details on the contest will be provided shortly on the GIS-T Symposium website.  Student presentation submissions or questions should be directed to: Mr. Don Kiel or Dr. Eunsu Lee.
Thanks for your consideration!
