GIScience 2016 continues a highly successful series of conferences started in 2000 that regularly brings together approximately 300 international participants from academia, industry, and government organizations to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art in Geographic Information Science. The conference consists of two refereed paper tracks: full papers (due Feburary 10, 2016) and extended abstracts (due May 4, 2016).
The Health and Medical Geography Specialty Group (HMGSG) of AAG invites current undergraduate and graduate students to submit their work to the specialty group's annual Peter Gould Student Paper Competition. The competition is meant to promote written scholarship by students across the field. A $250 prize will be awarded in each of two categories: 1) undergraduate students, and 2) graduate students (Master’s and Doctoral).
