2017 IS-GEO Summer Institute

The IS-GEO Summer Institute will take place July 24-28, 2017 in the Texas Advanced Computer Center of Austin. The institute will consist on a series of introductory tutorials and follow up hands-on sessions.  Each tutorial will provide an introductory overview to concepts in a particular research area, which will be applied to a concrete problem in the follow up hands-on session.  Evenings will be devoted to brainstorming projects of interest to participants, and drafting papers based on the work done during the day.
