2017 May IAB Meeting at GMU

The I/UCRC for Spatiotemporal Thinking, Computing and Applications (a.k.a. NSF Spatiotemporal Innovation Center) holds its 7th semi-annual Industrial Advisory Board meeting May 9-10th, 2017 at George Mason University (conveniently located near Washington DC). This meeting reviews the center’s innovative research and identifies new projects to be supported through collaborations among academia, industry, and agencies. All center research results are freely shared among members to boost their products, services, and businesses. All companies or agencies (with interest in geospatial and spatiotemporal research themes) are welcome to participate. This is a prime time to become familiar with cutting-edge research results, leverage the innovative outcome for your future products and services, increase your efficiency, improve your competitiveness, and boost your business.
