CFP for the Session "Spatially Integrated Humanities and Social Sciences" in the IGU 2016 China Congress
In the information age, the humanities and social sciences are undergoing a dramatic shift towards analyzing increasing quantities of larger scale diverse data in both computing and spatial context. Investigating complex socioeconomic dynamics calls for an interdisciplinary and collaborative integration of scholars. Spatially integrated social sciences and humanities will transform an isolated and purely academic pursuit focused inward to having a significant impact on public policy, industry, and other disciplines. In this session, scholars will report their studies on spatially integrated humanities and social sciences development, and to share their vision about the research trends in this field. The session will provide a great opportunity for professionals and students from various disciplines to discover cutting-edge analytical methods and applications, while at the same time exchange ideas, research results, professional experiences, and future visions in the area.
