The Center for Spatial Studies welcomes visiting scholars, instructors, postdoctoral researchers, and interns from any discipline and at any stage of their careers, as long as their work relates to spatial thinking and/or computing (view our previous and current visitors).
The Center will assist the visitor in obtaining a visa and it will provide work space, a computer, internet and UCSB library access, mentoring and consultation, and access to other professionals with common interests. However, a visitor must be self-funded, including health insurance, and must make their own arrangements for housing.
To apply to be a visitor to the Center for Spatial Studies at UCSB, please provide the proposed dates of your visit, a CV, names and contact information for two references, and a research plan for the work you will conduct for the duration of your visit.
The application must be sent to our contact email.
