2013 UCGIS Symposium "Collaboration Across Communities: GIScience 2.0 and Beyond"

When: May 21-23, 2013


An exciting slate of pre-symposium workshops are planned with variety of opportunities for all day and half day learning opportunities. The technical workshops include timely topics such as streaming spatial data, spatial SQL and spatial statistics. The collaborative track includes opportunities to become engaged in two ongoing community efforts including the Sustainable Learning Communities Network and the GIS&T Body of Knowledge 2.0. Finally, an all day workshop will allow participants with an interest in volunteered geographic information to delve into some of the theoretical and practical issues associated with research and community projects that leverage VGI.

The main symposium will emphasize collaboration across communities and has a strong line-up of panel sessions and plenary speakers addressing many of the challenges and opportunities associated with integrative, multidisciplinary and multi-community approaches to GIScience. In addition, outstanding contributors to GIScience education and research will be recognized. 

Early registration ends May 1, 3013.
