Dear Colleagues welcome to Theoretical_Geography_VVOIP_Debates website and the upcoming online colloquium titled:

Debate 3.8
COVID-19 by the Numbers, Modes, Big Data, and Reality
April 15th-16th, 2020

The VVoIP stands for Voice and Video over Internet Protocol and allows researchers to participate at low-budget directly from your office in a scientific panel discussion on the subjects related to your interests and research.

The Theoretical_Geography_VVOIP_Debates are effective, convenient, and inexpensive video-conferencing encouraging the free and effective exchange of ideas, concepts, and research results.

Theoretical_Geography_VVOIP_Debates provides an opportunity for a critical review of the intersection between theoretical geography and GIScience. It is intended that this review be of value to the broadly interdisciplinary community of scholars who increasingly make use of geographic information and spatial reasoning in research and teaching. Presentations and discussions will feature historical and intellectual perspectives, current status, and challenges for on-going investigations in such topics as computational cartography and modeling, landscape dynamics, space-time analysis, spatial thinking, time geography, and visualization of spatial patterns and processes.
