The QMRG is pleased to be co-sponsoring a session at the RGS-IBG Annual Conference 2011 with the GIScRG on: Early Careers Research in Quantitative Geography and Geographic Information Science. It is convened by James Cheshire (GIScRG) and Alex Singleton (QMRG).
The abstract is as follows:
The data and tools that are used for analysing, visualising and understanding social and environmental change have become increasingly accessible and sophisticated in recent years. Quantitative methods in geography and GIScience have been at the forefront of these advances, developing tools, providing new visualisations and communicating the results to wider audiences. This session seeks to attract researchers from all areas of quantitative geography, GIScience, Geovisualisation and beyond who are concerned with monitoring and visualising social or environmental change. Submissions are especially welcome from early career researchers and post-doctoral students who want to present results from their work in a friendly and supportive environment.
