Call for Papers Spatial Data Science Symposium 2021

The Center for Spatial Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara plans to host the 2nd Spatial Data Science Symposium virtually this year with a focus on “Spatial and Temporal Thinking in Data-Driven Methods.” The symposium aims to bring together researchers from both academia and industry to discuss experiences, insights, methodologies, and applications, taking spatial and temporal knowledge into account while addressing their domain-specific problems. The format of this symposium will be a combination of keynotes, scientific sessions, as well as paper presentations. We welcome submissions for both papers and sessions.
