Spatial Statistics 2019 : Spatial Statistics 2019: Towards Spatial Data Science
Call For Papers
Welcome to the 5th Spatial Statistics conference, which will be held in Sitges (near to Barcelona), Spain, from 10 – 13 July 2019 under the theme Towards Spatial Data Science.
The conference will bring together leading scientists in the field of spatial statistics to debate and discuss how to make statistically sound decisions and judgments in the domain of spatial data science.
Issues of statistical learning, but also common methods for spatial and spatio-temporal interpolation, stochastic geometry, classifications, tessellation, networks, point processes, random sets, including Bayesian modelling will be presented in the new context of spatial data science.
Oral and paper abstracts are now invited on the above topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.
Space-time statistics (e.g. geostatistics, point patterns, estimation methods, large dimensions)
New spatial data sources (e.g. social media, Google, citizen science, crowd source maps)
Stochastic geometry, tesselation, point processes, random sets
Causal statistical modeling
Spatial data quality and uncertainty
With these methods being applied in a range of relevant domains. For the theme of the conference, we particularly invite contributions in:
Image analyses (e.g. satellite images)
Traffic and transport
Ecology (e.g. dispersion, migration, colonisation and invasion of species)
Plant and animal epidemiology e.g. emerging epidemics)
Hazards, disasters and risks (e.g. outbreaks, risk mapping)
Health, (e.g. epidemiology, geohealth and medical)
