the UCGIS 2020 Symposium 

Thursday May 28 - Monday June 1, 2020 | Hawai'i Pacific University | Honolulu, Hawaii

Symposium FAQs



Following careful deliberation, UCGIS has decided to cancel its upcoming in-person Symposium that had been scheduled to take place May 29-31, 2020, in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Restrictions and concerns about travel are affecting the majority of scheduled presenters and registered participants. These are likely to continue through May 2020, unfortunately. 

Many people have contributed important and interesting ideas to our symposium content, and we are working on plans to offer selected portions of the program in online formats. We’ll do this in ways that will accommodate the needs and wishes of our presenters and be thoughtful for engagement and interaction with the audience, which is an important characteristic of UCGIS activities.

Thank you for your patience as we work to make these adjustments. Full refunds will be processed for anyone who has already registered for the Symposium. Details about the format and schedule of the online Symposium will be posted soon.
