A rich learning opportunity
November 14th, 2007 by Tom Johnson

We're big fans of the breakthroughs in applied GIS being done by crime analysists and the legal system broadly defined.  In fact, I would say that the conferences of these professionals are second only to the ESRI International Users Conference for new ideas and take-it-to-the-street learning.  So if you live near New Orleans — no matter what your profession — check this out.

The call for presentations and workshops for the 2008 Crime Mapping Research Conference is now posted.  The conference will take place September 17-20, 2008 at the Sheraton New Orleans.

Submission forms are available on the MAPS website:

Forms are also available in MS Word format. 

Please send completed forms back to , no later than January 18, 2008 (7pm EST).  We will inform you of final decisions no later than April 1, 2008.
