Geo4Dev 2018

Description

The 2nd Annual Symposium on Geospatial Analysis for International Development invites papers on the use of novel geospatial data and analytic techniques to address issues of poverty, sustainable development, urbanization, climate change, and economic growth in developing countries and beyond.  This includes a particular emphasis on the use of emerging geo-tagged big datasets, including satellite, social media, and CDR datasets.

2018 Focus: For this year’s symposium, Geo4Dev will focus on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and humanitarian response. This can include the observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response to climate or conflict stressors), as well as the design and evaluation of interventions for humanitarian crises, mass migration, and community resilience. Accepted speakers will be invited to give a 5 or 15 minute talk at the symposium.
