PLATIAL'X Symposium Series

PLATIAL'X Symposium Series

Established in 2018 as the first event of its kind, PLATIAL’X is a biannual symposium offering experts and interested researchers a forum to discuss interactively the most recent developments in the field of place-based (i.e., platial) information. The symposium is not geographically fixed and is held in different locations each time.

The symposium invites researchers to discuss a broad range of aspects of platial information:

  • Platial theory: theories, place representations, place ontologies, platial data models
  • Platial analytics: processing platial information, place-based statistics, platial algorithms
  • Empirical aspects: making sense of places, user-generated data, learning about place
  • Visualising place: platial cartography, scales and generalisation, platial visual analytics
  • Interdisciplinary links: relating GIScience, cognition, geography, and other platial fields
