SPATIAL 2015

SPATIAL 2015 report published in the Journal of Spatial Information Science [pdf] The Center for Spatial Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has launched a new biennial series of unconferences, entitled SPATIAL. Its main goal is to reach out to domain specialists to inspire and guide research on spatial information. Each edition will focus on applications of spatial information as a primary force to push the frontiers of Geographic Information Science, Spatial Cognition, and related fields. Rather than spending the bulk of their time listening to paper presentations, attendees will debate new ideas, address challenges, and discuss how to improve solutions. The inaugural SPATIAL 2015 was dedicated to applying spatial information to human health. It challenged the state-of-the-art in research on spatial information by discussing spatial approaches to problems and opportunities around human health. Attendees shared and developed bold visions, new insights, and best practices in applications of spatial information to the study of epidemics, nutrition, aging, health psychology, and other aspects of human health, with the objective of advancing our understanding of how spatial information must evolve to better support such studies. Thus, insights were sought on research questions around spatial information rather than on health itself, exploring real-world problems in a close dialogue between health and spatial experts. This event was held at the McCune Conference Room on the 6th floor of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building (HSSB) at UCSB. Program features included: • Invited presentations • 5-minute lightning talks, making a “case for space” in health • Demonstrations—live or video • Plenary debates • Breakout group discussions • Paper or proposal writing sessions • Informal discussions during walks on the beach or around the lagoon • Hackathons Attendance was self-funded, with an intentionally low general registration rate of $200 (student rate $100). Discounted rates were negotiated at nearby hotels For more information, see http://spatial.ucsb.edu/spatial2015 Program Chairs Marcia Castro (Harvard T.H.
