Join SIGGIS for two exciting pre-conference events.  At this year's AMCIS
conference in New Orleans (Thursday, August 16), we will have a workshop
and tutorial running concurrently:

*Workshop: Digital Disruption: A Workshop on the Implications for the
Geospatial Realm*

*This workshop will serve as a research forum on the varied aspects of
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the emergence of the “Geospatial
Realm”. As the understanding that geospatial, or locational, data has value
for many organizations, the focus on this special type of data has also
increased. Workshop activities will be facilitated focusing on this
research area to discuss the “who, what, where, when, how, and why” of
participating in this burgeoning research domain. (Contact: Dan Farkas -

*Tutorial: Social Media Operationalized for Locational Analytics: A
Hands-on Tutorial*

*Social media such as Twitter, Reddit, and Facebook, have become de facto
global communication channels to disseminate news, entertainment, and one’s
self-revelations. However, though these organizations provide real-time
data feeds that may be utilized in many ways, how does one actually go
about using these data? This workshop will provide hands-on instruction
regarding the collection, processing, and analysis of these data using
Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools, Topic Modeling Techniques, and
Geographic Information Systems (GIS). (Contact: Brian Hilton

Details and Agendas will follow as we get closer to the conference.
