USGIF hosting virtual State and Future of GEOINT Content Exchange in addition to live discussions
USGIF’s annual State and Future of GEOINT Report provides the GEOINT Community an opportunity to assess the current state of the profession and look ahead to the technologies and tradecraft of the future.
USGIF hosts in-person content exchanges that form the basis of the annual report. This report would not be possible without volunteer authors from government, industry, and academia dedicating their time and thought leadership.
This year, for the first time, USGIF is also reaching out beyond the live exchanges and announcing a virtual State and Future of GEOINT Call for Abstracts for those who cannot attend in-person but would still like to write for the report.
If you wish to submit an article for consideration, please prepare a one-page Word document including the following:
- A proposed article title
- An abstract of no more than 250 words.
- The names, titles, and contact information of at least two other co-authors. The three authors should not be from the same organization.
Abstracts should be sent to SFOG@usgif.org no later than Monday, September 8.
Virtual teams will be notified no later than October 6 whether their article has been selected for inclusion. Writing and revision will take place throughout October and November with final drafts due in early December.
Designed to expand opportunities for students enrolled at HBCUs by providing on-site job interviews, networking, and information gathering, USGIF participated in the HBCU Week 4th annual Career and Recruitment Fair to spread the word about careers in GEOINT.
USGIF has awarded more than $1.6M in scholarships since launching the program in 2004. This year's winners represent a diverse and multi-talented group who demonstrate a shared desire to impact change through the use of geospatial intelligence tradecraft.
