Apply for APA Advanced Training Institute on GIS for Behavioral Research
Geographic Information Systems for Behavioral Research

University of California, Santa Barbara
July 16-18, 2008

UCSB is hosting an Advanced Training Institute for the American Psychological Association. The objective of this ATI is to introduce the science and technologies of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to psychologists and other behavioral scientists.

ATI personnel will include: Reginald G. Golledge (behavioral geographer, UCSB), Michael F. Goodchild (geographer and GIS expert, UCSB), Daniel R. Montello (geographer, psychologist, and cognitive scientist, UCSB), Stephen Hirtle (psychologist and information scientist, University of Pittsburgh), and Gerard Rushton (geographer and health scientist, University of Iowa).

For complete details on the workshop and to apply online for participation, see http://www.apa.org/science/ati_gis.html. Deadline for applications: 30 April 2008.


NSF sponsored 2008 Summer Workshop on Spatial Filtering with the Eigenvector Approach
Geographic Information Systems for Behavioral Research

The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), June 16 - June 20, 2008

Go to http://www.spatialfiltering.com/Workshop/index.htm for details and to apply online. Deadline May 5, 2008.

Workshop coordinators: Michael Tiefelsdorf (UTD) and Daniel A. Griffith (UTD).

Key software platform: Spatial statistical routines implemented in the R system (see www.r-project.org).
Spatial filtering is a novel spatial statistical methodology to capture the inherent autocorrelation within geo-referenced observations.


2007

Workshop on Agent-Based Modeling of Complex Spatial Systems
Over the past few years two research communities have developed more-or-less independently: the community of agent-based modelers of spatial systems on the one hand, and the community interested in the representational and computational aspects of complex dynamic systems on the other.

As part of the joint US National Science Foundation / UK Economic and Social Research Council Special Activity in the Area of E-Science, the University of California, Santa Barbara and University College London have received funding for a workshop of approximately 30 participants, to be held

The Ninth Crime Mapping Research Conference

Spatial Approaches to Understand Crime & Demographics
Developing Methods for Research and Practice

The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial data analysis techniques have become prominent tools for analyzing criminal behavior and the impacts of the criminal justice system on society. Classical and spatial statistics have been merged to form more comprehensive approaches in understanding social problems from research and practical standpoints. These methods allow for the measurement of proximity effects on places by neighboring areas that lead to a multi-dimensional and less static understanding of factors that contribute to or repel crime across space.

GIS PLANET 2005

GIS PLANET 2005 is a global, independent and open event designed to involve many organizations. It targets the participation of the worldwide community and is the largest event dedicated to Geographic Information in Europe.

It will gather experts and professionals from many backgrounds and fields, allowing research, institutional, technical and user perspectives to converge in a single event focused on the framework and development of the Geo Information Society (GIS).

The Vespucci Initiative Summer School on GIS
Celebrating the fifth centenary of Vespucci's discoveries, the Vespucci Initiative recaptures his spirit of multi-disciplinary intellectual enquiry to explore new frontiers of knowledge. To that end it organizes and conducts a range of research and teaching activities, bringing together senior scientists and promising young researchers from around the world.

The Summer School is aimed at researchers from the university, commercial, and government sectors. It provides an inspiring and productive opportunity for peer-to-peer interaction with leading international experts in the field.

Location Privacy Workshop

The expanding use of spatial, mobile and context-aware technologies, the building of coordinated spatial data infrastructures and sensor-networks, and the use of location data as the foundation for many current and future information systems have profound implications for personal information privacy. This workshop will

  1. explore diverse practices, perceptions and concerns of citizens, data developers, system developers, privacy advocates and users of spatial data and location-aware technologies in government and private industry,
  2. explore the interconnectedness of location information and location technologies with personal privacy concerns,
  3. evolve conceptual frameworks within which such links might be better understood and concerns accommodated,
  4. consider the potential effects on spatial technology uses and developments of the legal options being suggested by scholars for protecting personal information privacy, and
  5. make recommendations to the broad scientific and practitioner communities as well as to policy makers on directions and actions that would best balance the interests of all parties affected by spatial technologies.

History and Geography:
Assessing the Role of Geographical Information in Historical Scholarship

The Newberry Library's Hermon Dunlap Smith Center for the History of Cartography will host "History and Geography," a conference devoted to assessing the many dimensions of historians'rapidly growing interest in geographical methods and sources, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in particular. Scholars engaged in historical research in the humanities, social sciences, and earth sciences will address emerging issues, including how to acknowledge the uncertainty and context of historical sources within the logical structure and visual representations of geo-spatial techniques, whether those techniques are contributing to a new positivism in history, and how geographers and historians can work together to improve geo-spatial methods and the quality of research based upon them.

Conference on Spatial Information Theory - COSIT
The aim of COSIT is to bring together researchers from different disciplines for an intensive scientific exchange. This aim is facilitated by the presentation and discussion of a restricted number of papers and posters -- the most innovative and significant recent contributions -- rather than papers covering all advances in the field. The conference is designed as a single track meeting to ensure that all conference participants can get involved in the discussions of the selected papers.
