If you find yourself taking a trip to Cambridge, MA in April, you might want to drop by Harvard’s Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA). CGA, together with the Harvard Data Science Initiative and ESRI, will host a conference on Illuminating Space and Time in Data Science on April 26-27, 2018. This conference aims at bringing together mainstream data scientists and geographic information scientists, to review the status of both fields, explore commonalities between the two, and identify the relevance of space and time in Data Science. The event features keynote speakers Francesca Dominici and Michael Goodchild, as well as thirty distinguished scholars from around the world. It is co-sponsored by I/UCRC Spatiotemporal Innovation Center and MapD Technologies, Inc.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, please visit http://gis.harvard.edu/events/conferences/2018-cga-conference-illuminating-space-and-time-data-science.
