AAG Newsletter of the Association of American Geographers, July/August 2010
“Every year, the Association of American Geographers (AAG) identifies a particularly timely or relevant set of themes to feature during its Annual Meetings. Last year an over-riding theme was climate change, for example, and previous years have included featured sessions on topics on as human rights, landscape and literature, sustainable development in Africa, geography of water, and many other topics.
“Among several special themes at its upcoming Annual Meeting in Seattle, April 12- 16, 2011, will be multiple sessions focused on the research status, recent advances and research needs of space-time integration, modeling and analysis in geography and GIScience. This special set of invited papers will feature many leading GIScience researchers from Asia and Europe as well nas from other regions of the world, and will form a three-day high-profile symposium within the AAG Annual Meeting.”
