Our 2020 Hawai‘i Symposium will model the exciting and innovative ways that geographic information science and its technologies (GIS&T) are connecting islands across academia. It will be structured to highlight and promote the deliberate integration of GIS&T research, education, and application activities at universities and with our non-academic partners. During hour-long sessions, we will showcase cohesive themes, individual projects, and lines of scholarly activity being undertaken by groups of individuals that model these convergent practices. Individual sessions will explore how related research, education and application activities are woven together to jointly address societal needs. Themes and topics that demonstrate collaborations across multiple departments within a single academic institution or collaborations across multiple universities are invited. We also encourage sessions that highlight university partnerships with researchers and educators outside of academia.
