International Symposium on
Background and scope
It is a pre-conference symposium associated with ICC 2021. The symposium will be held in a hybrid mode to be consistent with ICC 2021.
There is an inherent spatial dimension in the spread of infectious diseases. The spatial aspect of Covid-19 pandemic has attracted enormous research attention. Advancing our understanding of the epidemic dynamics and their relations with human activities helps the world to combat the pandemic more effectively. A large body of studies and practices have evidenced the importance of spatial thinking and the effectiveness of geospatial technologies in understanding Covid-19. It is critical to share research findings quickly so as to maximize the use of them in the world’s collective efforts. This symposium calls for submissions of Covid-19 research from the geospatial perspective. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following.
You are invited to submit an extended abstract (1200-1500 words) at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ica2021. All submissions should be prepared in English, single column, singled-spaced with figures and tables within the text. A submission should contain author affiliations and email addresses, a short abstract (up to 250 words), and keywords, in addition to the main text. The extended abstract should include succinct and sufficient information about research objectives, significance, method, and preliminary or expected findings.
Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit full papers for consideration of post-event publication in a special issue of Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science: Urban Analytical Approaches to Combatting Covid-19. Final decisions on full paper submissions will be made following the standard double-blind peer review process.
