Reproducible Problem Solving with CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Monday, July 8 –  Saturday, July 13, 2019


Save the dates! A week-long summer school on Reproducible Problem Solving with CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science will be held July 8-13, 2019, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). We will be inviting about 30 graduate students and early career scholars to collaborate in developing novel solutions to scientific problems, learning and taking advantage of cutting-edge scientific advances and technical capabilities of cyberGIS (e.g., CyberGIS-Jupyter and Virtual ROGER: http://cybergis.illinois.edu/infrastructures/) and geospatial data science. Participants will experience the types of professional interactions that are key to addressing reproducible geospatial problem solving in the context of computation-, data- and/or collaboration-intensive research. The program is ideal for those working on interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary topics, including but not limited to: data-driven social and environmental sciences, digital humanities, geospatial artificial intelligence, and remote sensing big data.

If you are a graduate student or an early-career scholar working in a domain that already uses cyberGIS or geospatial data science approaches, or you are interested in learning more about frontiers in cyberGIS and geospatial data science, this summer school will offer new and exciting opportunities for your professional development, and will help you build connections with others in these fields.

This 2019 summer school is being led by UIUC’s CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies (CyberGIS Center), in collaboration with the American Association of Geographers (AAG) and the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), with generous financial support from the National Science Foundation. Selected participants will be offered travel awards to enable participation. Further information about the program of the summer school and about how to apply to attend will be announced in early March, 2019, at the CyberGIS Center website.
