The new “state-of-the-art” auditorium at the ESRI campus in Redlands, Calif. is getting good use. In addition to the planned GeoDesign Summit that will take place there in early January, there’s now a planned Space-Time Modeling and Analysis Workshop that will take place there at the end of February as part of the first Redlands GIS Week.
The Space-Time Workshop is cosponsored by the University of Southern California, ESRI, the Association of American Geographers (AAG), and the University of Redlands. The event will feature keynote presentations, lightning talks, and small group discussions, as well as opportunities for informal brainstorming with leading geospatial thinkers and implementers. The organizers are looking for researchers to present their work with concrete answers to concrete problems.
In addition, there’s also a planned lecture series of free talks that will be organized by the University of Redlands Town and Gown organization. The first talk will be by former U.S. Senator Bob Kerry on Oct. 30 at 5 p.m. Other speakers include Willie Smits, Biologist, Chairman, Masarang Foundation, and Founder, Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) and Earl E. Devaney, Chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board. The full schedule for the cultural series can be found here.
