Happy new year, all!
- I've co-authored a SIGSPATIAL newsletter article w/ Joon-Seok Kim and Andrew Crooks about using procedural city generators for a broader urban research. You can find the full text here.
- We (my team at GMU and Tulane University) organized the GeoSim Workshop at the SIGSPATIAL 2018. The workshop included invited talks, paper presentations, and a panel discussion. Details are at geosim.org.
- We have made final decisions about GeoSim 2018 papers. Based on current status, our workshop will have two sessions at the SIGSPATIAL 2018.
- I am presenting our paper 'Fine-Scale Prediction of People's Home Location using Social Media Footprints' at SBP-BRIMS 2018 this week.
- Our PLOS ONE paper has been published this week. Take a look at it!
