NSF-CDI Project —  2014 Specialist Meeting

Human Dynamics in the Mobile Age (HDMA):

New Frontiers of Knowledge Discovery in Cyberspace and Big Data

San Diego State University, San Diego.

August 11, 12 (Monday, Tuesday), 2014

The goal of this workshop is to foster the multidisciplinary collaboration in related research disciplines, including geography, linguistics, computer science, political science, and communication. The two-day workshop (August 11 and August 12, 2014), organized by San Diego State University, brings together twelve specialists drawn from the many disciplines with interest in these issues. The workshop aims to assess the current state of the art, identify and prioritize a research agenda, and begin the development of a research community of collaborating scholars working on these issues.

Twelve specialists and scholars were invited by the NSF project team, consisting of PI Ming-Hsiang Tsou (Geography) and Co-PIs Dipak Gupta (Political Science), Jean Mark Gawron (Linguistics), Brian Spitzberg (Communication), and Li An (Geography).
