CFP – Future Directions in Geoweb Research: an alt.conference of Big Data, Theory and Geography’s Role

We’d like to call attention to the unique format we are able to facilitate. We’re encouraging submissions for short lightning talk panels that do not interfere with your ability to present more substantial papers at the AAG.

The lightning talks are organized by theme and will then be discussed by panelists including Rob Kitchin, Nadine Schuurman, Matt Wilson, Matt Zook, Jeremy Crampton, Monica Stephens, Mark Graham, David O’Sullivan, Agnieszka Leszczynski, Renee Sieber, and others.
