Scientists to Gather for Inaugural Redlands GIS Week in February 2010
Scientists working on understanding the integration of space and time will gather in California February 22–23, 2010, to attend the Space-Time Modeling and Analysis Workshop. The workshop will be part of the first Redlands GIS Week—a gathering of thought leaders from academia, government, and industry to advance the science and application of geospatial technologies. The remainder of Redlands GIS Week 2010 will be dedicated to informal networking activities, demonstrations, and technical tours.
The Space-Time Modeling and Analysis Workshop will feature keynote presentations, lightning talks, and small group discussions, as well as opportunities for informal brainstorming with leading geospatial thinkers and implementers. Researchers are invited to submit 500-word abstracts describing the work that they would present as either a keynote or lightning (focused 10-minute) talk. Preference will be given to abstracts describing concrete results to concrete problems, and software demonstrations are encouraged.
Redlands GIS Week will be held at ESRI’s headquarters as well as nearby sites in Redlands, California. The event is cosponsored by the University of Southern California, ESRI, the Association of American Geographers (AAG), and the University of Redlands. After the workshop, a publication will share the event’s results with a larger audience.
