Preliminary call for papers - 2010 NSS Convention

Postby HKalnitz » Feb 5, 2010 10:53 am

Folks
Have you learned something new about survey in the last year? Have you used a new piece of equipment or new technique that has improved your survey skills or throughput?Have you discovered a cool new trick or look that improves your maps? New theories of loop closure? A better way to portray complex passage?

Share all these and more in a paper at this years survey and cartography sessions at the 2010 NSS convention in Burlington Vermont August 2nd - 6th. Present your learnings in a 20 to 40 minute presentation (depending on how many we get)
If you plan to do a presentation, you should submit an abstract of not over 250 words to me, so that I can set up the schedule and make sure your abstract gets into the convention program. Your Abstract should include a summary of conclusions and results, not just a statement of what you will talk about, but make sure you share enough to entice convention goers to attend your presentation!

When you submit your abstract please let me, the session coordinator, know what equipment you will need for your presentation. You can assume the usual 35mm slide projector and overhead projector can be made available, but please consider supplying a digital presentation. Plan to supply your own laptop computer, but one can usually be made available if I am notified well ahead of time. Email submission is strongly encouraged, but I will accept most any legible format.
You can reach me at hkalnitz@fuse.net or
 4328 Peppermill ln. 
CincinnatI oh 45242
I have not heard yet the cutoff date nor the final format, but don't let this stop you from starting to think about this and putting your program together. I will make sure abstracts are put in the right format and will send them on
 
And returning this year after a great session last year are the 5 minute topics in survey and cartography. We will reserve the last few minutes of the session for anyone to get up and quickly share topics - no reservations needed! If you have something small by all means plan on sharing.
There will be more info later
