UC GIS Week
November 17, 2020 - November 19, 2020
The UC GIS Week committee is proud to announce the first UC-wide GIS Week. Join us for a 3-day virtual conference which celebrates the GIS work of the University of California faculty, staff, students, and alumni. The University of California system is holding an inaugural UC GIS Week on November 17th – 19th, 2020 through Zoom.
We will celebrate all things mapping and geospatial. In light of the challenging times, we are coming together virtually to share our work with our community. Researchers, students, industry partners, alumni, and community mappers, will share their accomplishments and inspire others through their mapping.
This is an opportunity for you to learn and engage with experts and mapping projects across the UC system and beyond! Ask questions during the thematic mapping panels, engage with GIS industry professionals, interact with posters presenters, and connect during social events.
All talks are free and open to the public!
