2018 GeoJam

We are pleased to post the final schedule for the 2018 GeoJam as well as a list of presentation abstracts. Please keep in mind that the final schedule may vary slightly from these versions.

Also, the Alaska Arc User Group will be hosting a no-host reception in the East Barrel Room of 49th State Brewing Company (717 W 3rd Avenue) on Wednesday evening (February 14th!) from 5:15pm to 8:00 pm’ish. This will be a great way to relax after an intense day of conference sessions! We may even have a short speaker or two at the event just to keep the information flowing (along with the brews). Help us spend our Valentine’s Day with that “spatial” someone in your life!

For questions about the GeoJam scheduling process, please contact Michael Knapp at mknapp@blueskiessolutions.net or Mireya Armesto at marmesto@msn.com.
