application form, including a 300-word abstract with your proposed project for the Institute. The Institute often fills early so don't delay.
Questions can be directed to S4 associate director and Institute organizer, Rachel Franklin.
S4 is pleased to announce the dates for its summer GIS Institute: May 23 to June 3, 2016. Check back soon for application instructions and other details. Questions? Feel free to contact Rachel Franklin, S4 associate director.
The S4 graduate student paper prize will be given for a graduate student paper that employs spatial analysis/thinking or GIS. The submission deadline is March 25, 2016. Only complete papers will be judged, but it's fine for manuscripts to be in draft format (or even recently published). The winner is committed to giving his/her paper as part of the S4 speaker series in late April/early May and will receive a prize of $500.
We'll also have a festive reception in honor of the winner after his/her talk. I know many of you are writing papers -- why not submit them? To be considered for the prize, simply email Rachel Franklin a pdf of your paper by the deadline. Papers co-authored with others students are fine, but not with faculty.
All day Friday, January 22, this winter's GIS Institute participants will be presenting the results of their project work in the seminar room of the PSTC. The day kicks off at 9:30 with breakfast. Feel free to attend all day or just stop by for a bit. The presentation schedule is here.
S4's Winter 2016 GIS Institute will be held January 11-22. The deadline to apply is December 1, 2015. Applying is easy! Simply complete the brief form here.

Sound interesting? We will be offer the GIS Institute again in January 2016 and May 2016. Stay in touch or contact Rachel Franklin, S4 associate director, for more details.
A key element of the GIS Institute is the individual research project and participants work hard to produce spatial analysis results and mapping by the end of the two-week period. This time around saw incredible diversity in projects--everything from the spatial nature of raiding in northeastern Colonial India to gentrification in Brooklyn to the spatial production of ignorance in post-Katrina New Orleans. A full rundown of projects can be found here.
Congratulations to all!
