While everyone in the lab has been busy this year on journal publications, a few of us found some time to head over to ACM SIGSPATIAL this week in Seattle, WA. Grant McKenzie and Krzysztof Janowicz chaired the 2nd Workshop on Privacy in Geographic Information Collection and Analysis.

Yingjie Hu presented a paper co-authored with Krzysztof Janowicz title Prioritizing Road Network Connectivity Information for Disaster Response at the 1st International Workshop on the Use of GIS in Emergency Management.

Grant McKenzie also presented a paper co-authored with Ben Adams and Krzysztof Janowicz titled Of Oxen and Birds: Is Yik Yak a useful new data source in the geosocial zoo or just another Twitter? at the 8th International Workshop on Location-Based Social Networks.
