Spatial optimization and analysis has been applied to solve a range of problems concerning placement of entities, resources, goods and services in space. In these sessions, we welcome studies addressing any relevant issues related to spatial optimization and analysis. These studies include but not limited to:
• Location analysis and modeling
• GIS and suitability analysis
• Network design and analysis
• Transportation modeling and planning
• Land use planning and resource management
• Districting/regionalization
• Big data applications
• Problem solution techniques
