Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field involving the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modelling of spatial variability and uncertainty.

Applications of spatial statistics are for a broad range of environmental disciplines such as agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, forestry, meteorology and climatology, but also for socio-economic disciplines such as human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology and spatial planning. The availability of GIS systems and affordable geospatial databases has fuelled the interest in the statistical analysis of geographic data.

The theme, Emerging Patterns in Spatial Statistics will highlight the discovery/detection of trends on various topics such as ‘disease mapping’, ‘disaster and conflict’ (tsunamis, earthquakes, landslides, air pollution levels), ‘predictive modelling’ and ‘new sources of spatial data’.

This is a significant opportunity for you to hear from leading edge speakers and to network with colleagues in industry and academia to ensure you keep abreast of recent developments in this fast evolving field.

Conference Topics

Abstract submissions are invited on the conference topics below and should be submitted using the online submission system by the 13 February 2015.

  • Predictive modeling
  • Spatial and spatio-temporal point patterns
  • Tipping points (e.g. sea-level rise, socio-economic shifts)
  • New spatial data sources (social media, Google, crowd source maps)
  • Spatial data quality and uncertainty
  • Hazards, disasters and risks
  • Geography of conflicts (e.g. boundary conflicts , correction of conflicts)
  • Global change
  • Health, medical and epidemiology
  • Image analyses (e.g. satellite images time series, DNA data, Nano particles, nervous systems)
