Spring NEARC 2012

Smith College once again hosts the “Biggest Little Most Reasonably Priced GIS (BLRPGIS) Conference in New England”.  Abstracts are in and planning is well under way as we prepare to host our 9th annual spring NEARC (Northeast ArcInfo Users Group) Conference.  We are still accepting poster entries.

The preliminary schedule is now available.  Some highlights include:

  • Updates from ESRI on ArcGIS 10.1
  • Lightning Talks
  • GIS Karaoke
  • Web Map Services
  • Census 2010 Workshop
  • Sessions on Landscape, Water Resources, GIS Techniques, Planning and more
  • Talks from Don Cooke and Dana Tomlin

Below are a few rare, never seen before, pictures of our mysterious planning process.  Our working sessions resemble a serious board game night  😉
