Computational Demography Working Group: Second Meeting (10/31/2019)

Posted: 10/28/2019 (Local Events)

Join the Computational Demography Working Group (CDWG) for its second meeting of the year, on Thursday 10/31 from 12:00 till approximately 1:30. The meeting is in 114 Raitt Hall, and you’ll hear from Dr Bo Zhao, from Geography here at the UW. Lunch will be provided!

In his talk, Bo will introduce the concept and development of geo-narratology, and its relevance to some of Bo’s recent geovisualization work, such as Sea-Level Induced Migration (http://geoviz.ceoas.oregonstate.edu/slr), Global Refugee Atlas (https://geoviz.ceoas.oregonstate.edu/refugee/), and Stand with #StandingRock (https://geoviz.ceoas.oregonstate.edu/standwithstandingrock/).

Bo Zhao is an assistant professor from the department of geography at the University of Washington – Seattle. He is specialized in GIScience, Web Mapping, and VGI (Volunteered Geographic Information). His recent research mainly focuses on a) the geovisualization and geo-narrative of the coupled human and natural system (e.g., climate change, water use, coastal hazards, etc; b) The social implications of mapping, geovisualization and/or other forms of geospatial technologies; c) The study of spoofing phenomena in geography.

The Computational Demography Working Group is sponsored by CSDE and the eScience Institute. You can find out more about it on the website here: https://csde-uw.github.io/computational-demography/.
