AAG-UCGIS Summer School 2019

In July 2019, a week-long summer school on Reproducible Problem Solving with CyberGIS and Geospatial Data Science was co-led by the CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies (CyberGIS Center) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), American Association of Geographers (AAG), and University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS). Approximately 30 graduate students and early career scholars collaborated in developing novel solutions to complex problems and to take advantage of geospatial data science and cutting-edge scientific advances and technical capabilities of cyberGIS (e.g., CyberGIS-Jupyter and Virtual ROGER: cybergis.illinois.edu/infrastructures). Participants experienced the types of collaborative and professional interactions that are key to addressing reproducible geospatial problem solving in the context of computation- and/or data-intensive research involving confidential geospatial data. The program was built on the success of the inaugural UCGIS Summer School in 2017, and 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.

This Summer School will be hosted on the UIUC campus at Urbana, Illinois, USA from Monday July 8 to Saturday July 13, 2019. UIUC will offer travel awards through generous support of the National Science Foundation (NSF) for participating in the Summer School. As additional information becomes available, it will be posted here and at the Summer School's primary UIUC website
