Where 2.0 Seeking Proposals From Hyper-local to Geo-global
Are you shaping the technology that will shape the geospatial industry?
Then we want to hear from you. Submit your proposal to lead a workshop, teach a tool and share your skill.
For three days, Where 2.0 brings together hundreds of geospatial leaders, influencers, researchers, entrepreneurs and cutting-edge coders. The workshops, seminars, panel discussions, tutorials and keynotes at Where 2.0 offer an unparalleled opportunity to present your ideas, share your research, teach new techniques, and find an audience for your product launch.
Are you working on new data collection and visualization techniques?
Crowdsourcing aerial imagery to build zoomable web maps? Dazzle us with the results in a presentation at Where 2.0.
About to leave the comfort of a geospatial industry career to launch a location aware start up? Where 2.0 is at the epicenter of the geo-location industry, and a perfect place to announce your new venture.
Working with municipalities to release and reuse the treasure trove of spatial data stored in government agency databases? Modeling urban growth and suburban sprawl? Suggest a panel discussion to share your experiences with leaders in the field.
An NGO currently mapping the spread of disease using new geocentric approaches to epidemiology? Present your findings to a concerned audience of activists, community organizers, and other non-profits.
A university researcher or academic studying the field, building prototypes, conducting tomographic image and GPS field studies? Find a forum for your work at Where 2.0.
A developer coding the latest geo-data mapping widget about to release on Apple's App Store? Where 2.0 is the ideal demo platform.
There's no better place to be than Where 2.0. Change the game, share your real world examples, teach a workshop, lead a session, and blow us away with your killer presentation.
Submit your proposal to speak at Where 2.0. Proposals are due by December 2, 2008; registration opens January 2009.
