Spatial Statistics: Emerging Patterns

June 9, 2015 - June 12, 2015

The 2015 Spatial Statistics conference will be held June 9-12 in Avignon, France.

Spatial statistics is of importance to the use and interpretation of volunteered geographic information (VGI), web services, remotely sensed data and further processing within a GIS environment. Applications of spatial statistics are for a broad range of environmental disciplines (e.g. agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, forestry, meteorology and climatology) as well as for socioeconomic disciplines (e.g. human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology and spatial planning).

The event theme, “emerging patterns in spatial statistics,” will highlight trends on new sources of spatial data; predictive modeling; disease mapping; hazards, disasters and risks; climate change; and tipping points.

Conference topics include:

  • space-time statistics (e.g. point patterns models, estimation methods, large dimensions, scale issues);
  • spatial data quality and uncertainty;
  • parameter estimation in PDEs;
  • stochastic geometry, tessellation, point processes, random sets;
  • spatial econometrics;
  • new spatial data sources (e.g. big, data, social media, Google, citizen science, crowd source maps);
  • image analyses (e.g. satellite images time series, DNA data, nano particles, nervous systems);
  • predictive modeling;
  • tipping points (e.g. sea-level rise, socio-economic shifts);
  • hazards, disasters and risks (e.g. tsunamis, earthquakes, landslides, air pollution levels);
  • global change (e.g. stochastic weather generators);
  • health, medical and epidemiology;
  • plant and animal epidemiology (emerging epidemics);
  • and ecology (e.g. dispersion, migration, colonization and invasion of species).
