2018 IGU Regional Conference

Monday 6 August to Friday 10 August 2018
Centre des congrès de Québec, Boulevard René-Lévesque Est, Québec City, QC, Canada

UBDC researcher Dr David McArthur will be presenting a paper on 'Enhancing data privacy with semantic trajectories: A raster‐based framework for GPS stop/move management' at a special session being organised by the Network on European Communications and Transport Activities Research group at the International Geographical Union Regional Conference on 'Big data for mobilities studies: Applications and critical perspectives'.

The 2018 International Geographical Union (IGU) Regional Conference - Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) Annual Meeting - National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) Annual Conference will be held in Canada from 6 to 10 August 2018:

"The conference theme, Appreciating Difference, or Apprécier la différence, is a Quebec expression that invites participants to consider the world as a blank canvas that we must first decide how to depict before putting down images and words. Surely, the choice of those images and words is a matter of appreciation. To appreciate is not only a question of what we find significant and of value, it is also an awareness of differences and the ability to recognize them as meaningful to a more inclusive interpretation of the diverse world in which we live. Conference topics, as well as IGU commissions, CAG study groups and NCGE Sections will reflect on this thought-provoking theme."
