Society for Conservation GIS Conference
The Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS) assists conservationists worldwide by using GIS through communication, networking, scholarships, and training. Membership to the society is open to any individual who seeks assistance in the achievement of personal or organizational conservation goals. The Society for Conservation GIS would like to announce its 15th Annual Conference “Building Resilience”, to be held July 19 – 22, 2012 at Asilomar Conference Grounds in Monterey, California.
“The theme for the 2012 SCGIS Conference is “Building Resilience.” Our topics range from communication and public understanding of science, to how interdisciplinary cooperation can offer solutions to seemingly unyielding problems.”
SCGIS, made up of conservationists, geographers, scientists, students and educators is a diverse group of professionals dedicated to using GIS to achieve conservation goals. If you share similar interests and are willing to learn and share, please consider this the conference for you. And unlike other conferences where you are constantly hustled from one place to the next, you will be given time to talk to people: meals are shared, there are socials, and plenty of down-time between sessions to ask questions and share experiences with fellow attendees.
