报告摘要:

This talk presents a synoptic overview on a recent mega trend in both scientific research and science funding – convergence. By contextualizing this trend in the shifting paradigms of recent geographic and GIScience research, it is argued that both geography and GIScience are uniquely positioned to play a leading role in convergent research in the coming years.  To lead convergent research and make it more robust reliable, geographers need and GIScience to make a collective effort to take calculated risks and develop new strategies for both our research and education programs.
