The 27th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems is coming up in early November. This year the conference will take place in Chicago, IL. One of the nice things about SIGSPATIAL is the range of workshops that take place on the first day of the conference. This year, Professor McKenzie has been invited to give a keynote at the 3rd ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Analytics for Local Events and News (LENS 2019). More information on the LENS workshop here. Paper submissions are still open for the workshop as well.
