Il comitato organizzatore del Convegno

Time in Space. [Space analysis challenging historical certainties]

rende noto l’indirizzo della pagina web dell’iniziativa:

Una breve descrizione degli intenti del Convegno dalla pagina web (dove si trova anche il form per presentare un abstract):

“The event, organized by the Universtià di Pisa, Universidade de Brasilia and the University of Lancaster is open to researchers interested in the field of GIS application in the humanities. Between June 26th to 28th 2019 we will discuss and examine new ways and methods to represent and analyze time in the GISciences. Scholars from any discipline are invited to join us to share their experiences and case studies with a wide multidisciplinary community of researchers engaged in the main topics of the conference. Speakers should submit an abstract to the scientific committee for evaluation. As the official language of the conference is English, submission and presentation should be of the same language.”

Come evidenziano gli organizzatori, “the goal of this congress is not to gather a large number of scholars experienced in the use of GIS applications, but rather that of creating a space for dialogue and the construction of a common field of exchange.
