Recently, Dr. Lei Zou from GEAR Lab was appointed the vice-chair of the Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling (GAM) in the International Cartographic Association (ICA): https://gam.icaci.org/the-commission/commission-leadership/. Congratulations!
The GAM commission was established in August 2007, following an official approval in the 14th General Assembly of the ICA. Since then, the GAM commission has organized pre-conference workshops at International Cartographic Conferences, e.g., the International Symposium on Geospatial Approaches to Combating Covid-19 in Florence, Italy.
As the vice-chair, Dr. Zou will help promote the publicity of the GAM commission and organize workshops and symposiums in the next few years while engaging more early-career scholars in the commission.
