The Conference     Hawaii Convention Center October 14-16, 2015

This joint conference is a partnership of the planning and GIS communities in Hawaii. The State Office of Planning (OP), the Hawaii Congress of Planning Officials (HCPO), and the Hawaii Geographic Information Coordinating Council (HIGICC) are putting together an exciting, innovative and productive conference entitled "Island Futures." The conference is scheduled for October 14-16, 2015, at the Hawaii Convention Center on Oahu. The combined conference will include joint and individual plenary sessions, mobile workshops, breakout sessions and specific educational seminars--in other words--something for everyone. Attendees from either conference will have the freedom to attend any session regardless of registration or affiliation.

The theme of this year's conference is "Island Futures," and will include sessions on the economic, social and environmental issues facing our islands today and the ways in which the planning and GIS communities can assist in ensuring a positive future for our islands. Case studies, current management methods and the newest GIS technologies will be featured.
