eeo_logo1

This week’s EEO-AGI(S) seminar will be given by Prof. Mike Batty, Professor of Planning at, and Founder and Chair of, the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) based at University College London (UCL). His talk is entitled:

“*Smart Cities: Big Data, Real Time Transport, Social Media and Urban Simulation*”

Professor Batty is the recipient of the 2013 Vautrin Lud International Geography Prize.  The Prize is modelled on the Nobel Prize and is the highest international award that can be gained in Geography. Laureates are nominated by a jury of five from a shortlist nominated by 240 leading international geographers.  We are therefore most honoured and fortunate to be hosting Professor Batty for this week’s seminar.

The seminar will take place TODAY Friday 1st March at 4pm in the Old Library, Geography Building, Univ. of Edinburgh, Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9XP.

A selection of refreshments and snacks will be provided including ale and Mackies crisps.

Also, a reminder that following all EEO-AGI(S) Seminars are AGI Geo-Drinks for informal professional networking held from 5.30 in Teviot Library Bar, Bristo Sq, EH8 9AJ. All welcome – please do come along and meet colleagues and fellow AGI members.
