Spatial interaction models have a rich history in geography and the spatial sciences, with decades of research and advancements. The 50th anniversary of Sir Alan Wilson’s groundbreaking formalization of spatial interaction using entropy maximization was recently celebrated at the 2017 Geocomputation meeting. In addition, this year marks the 35th anniversary of the Competing Destinations modeling framework pioneered by Dr. Stewart Fotheringham. More recently, the widespread adoption of location-aware technologies has produced many new sources of spatial interaction data that are enriched with increasingly finer spatial and temporal resolutions. These new sources of big spatial interaction data provide an unprecedented opportunity to improve our understanding of spatial interaction processes. As part of the AAG 2018 Spatiotemporal Symposium, this double session aims to honor the tradition of spatial interaction models in geography, present the current state-of-the-art, and promote future research. Therefore, we are seeking submissions that showcase recent advancements in spatial interaction modeling and methods.
