UCGIS Summer School 2017: Collaborative Problem Solving with CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science

Location: Arlington, Virginia

Date: May 23 – 25, 2017

In May 2017, the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS) will launch its first Summer School for graduate students and early-career scholars around the theme of Collaborative Problem Solving with CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science. Participants will develop novel solutions to a set of motivating and significant scientific problems as they learn about cutting-edge scientific advances and technical capabilities of cyberGIS (e.g. ROGER, http://go.illinois.edu/ROGER).

NSF Workshop on Geospatial Data Science in the Era of Big Data and CyberGIS

Location: Urbana, Illinois, USA

Date: July 25-26, 2016

The primary goal of this workshop is to bring together thought leaders and cutting-edge researchers from pertinent multidisciplinary communities to explore the frontiers of geospatial data science. The complexity, diversity, and rapid growth of geospatial data have increased significantly over recent decades and are driving discoveries in a large number of application and science domains. Access to and interaction with geospatial big data collected from numerous sources are increasingly fundamental to explore natural, human and social systems at unprecedented scales and provide tremendous opportunities to gain dynamic insight into complex phenomena through big compute (e.g. cloud and high-performance computing) and cyberGIS approaches.
