Geocomputational landscapes and spaces

Fri 15 March 2013

Special session titled “Geocomputational landscapes and spaces” at the International Conference on Applied Mathematics, Modeling and Computational Science (AMMCS-2013), to be held at Wilfrid Laurier University, August 26-30, 2013.

The deadline for abstracts is April 15, 2013.

Description of the session:

This session focuses on new applications and theoretical developments in geocomputation. Increasingly, spatial analysis and modelling requires advanced computational techniques (MCMC, INLA, GAs etc.) to address problems related to land and resource management. This session is devoted to current developments and advances in geocomputation for understanding landscape patterns, processes, and building spatial decision-support systems. For example, talks will explore computational solutions to problems related to multi-objective optimization of spatial configuration of land-uses, new computational approaches to spatial model development and assessment and map comparison analysis. We encourage submissions of additional presentations related to geocomputation including spatial modelling, genetic algorithm development, spatial databases, spatial representation, visualization, and spatial analysis of ‘Big Data’.

Abstract submission is here, and be sure to note the special session.

Please share with colleagues and feel free to contact the organizers of this session Dr Colin Robertson and Dr Steve Roberts.
