GIVA and GIScience @ ECTQG 2019

Strong showing of GIVA at the European Colloquium on Theoretical and Quantitative Geography (ECTQG) in Mondorf-Les-Bains, Luxembourg on 5-9 September 2019.

Sara Fabrikant held her keynote "Smart mobile citizen sensing for wise decisions of
tomorrow’s digital society"
. In her talk, Sara highlighted ongoing empirical research on human and context responsive geographic information displays used in the GIVA labs and in the wild, capitalizing on ambulatory human behavior sensing methods (i.e., eye tracking, galvanic skin response, and EEG measurements, etc.).  Her talk stimulated interessting discussions on designing smart, user, task, and context responsive geographic information interfaces for tomorrow’s digital society.

The special session Mobilities and Health was co-organized by the GIUZ. In his presentation with the title "Identifying activity spaces from geo-referenced Twitter data: Superstorm Sandy, mobility patterns, and emotions in New York City" Ivor Mardesic showcased how georeferenced social media data can be used to identify activity spaces and emotions. 

GIVA says thank you to the organizers and all staff members for the welcoming atmosphere and the professional organization.
