Human activity is typically confined to networks or occurs in relatively close proximity to them.  The abstract concept of a network is a topologically connected set of edges and vertices, with concrete examples being roads in a city, bike paths in a park, interconnected railway lines, airline connections, and trans-oceanic shipping lines.  Networks function as the primary means of transportation for people and goods, and play a large role in determining humans’ economic and social outcomes.  For these reasons, most types of facilities are located along networks and most people reside along networks.  We are seeking submissions for presentations that take novel approaches or unique applications of existing approaches to network-based problems in GIScience.  One of our goals is to promote spatially-focused, accessible, and reproducible data science. Thus, we especially encourage papers and projects that take advantage of open-source tools and methods, with an emphasis on automation and replicability.

Topics may include, but are of course, not limited to:
• Facility Location
• Transportation
• Routing
• Network Analysis
• Accessibility
• The above performed using the open-source programming languages and software, such as:
• Python, R, Julia, QGIS, COIN-OR
