For students and faculty looking to present papers:

When you register, you should already have a title and completed abstract for your paper, poster or map. During the online registration process you will be asked to copy and paste your title and abstract into a web-form.  That tile and abstract will appear in the conference program, which is published a week or two before the conference itself.

If you plan to enter a student competition, please follow closely the guidelines established by the various calls for papers that will be posted here, once registration opens.  You may compete for prize money and recognition for papers (oral presentations of research) posters, and cartography.
