AAG GIS Specialty Group Student Paper Competition

The GIS Specialty Group (GISSG) of the Association of American Geographers is pleased to announce the 2010 Honors Competition for Student Papers on Geographic Information Science (GIS) topics to be presented at the annual meeting. The purpose of this competition is to promote scholarship and written and oral presentation by students in the field of GIS. Papers are invited from current graduate and undergraduate students on any topic in geographical information systems and geographic information science.

Any paper that advances any aspect of GIS is welcome. We especially encourage papers on theoretical, conceptual, and methodological developments in GIS rather than on particular applications. Papers must be based upon original work, completed as an undergraduate or graduate student, relevant to the field of GIS and current GIS research. Papers must be written entirely by the applicant. Students who are selected as finalists will be placed in a special session at the annual meeting. The only exception is a student who is also selected as a Nystrom Dissertation Award finalist, in which case, he or she may present in the Nystrom paper session instead.
