GEAR lab members received ICA Scholarship and travel funding to attend ICC2023

We are thrilled to share that Binbin and Joynal will be representing us at the prestigious International Cartographic Conference 2023 (ICC) in Cape Town, South Africa!

They have been honored with the International Cartographic Association (ICA) 2023 Scholarship. This prestigious scholarship was awarded after a rigorous evaluation process, considering various aspects such as their conference submission, paper/poster quality, academic studies, career progression, support letters, motivation letters, and the limited funds available for this purpose. We commend them for their outstanding contributions and dedication.

Additionally, they have been granted travel funding by the U.S. National Committee (USNC) to the International Cartographic Association. This generous support enables them to attend the ICC and participate in the enriching conference experience.

During the ICC 2023, Joynal will present a talk titled "Mapping the geographically and temporally evolved flood risks in the contiguous United States." His research delves into the evolving nature of flood risks across different regions of the United States, providing valuable insights into this critical issue.

Binbin's presentation, titled "Mapping the temporally evolved geographic disparities of public perceptions of COVID-19 through social media," promises to shed light on the evolving nature of these perceptions over time through social media analysis.

We congratulate Joynal and Binbin on their remarkable achievements and wish them the best as they share their expertise and contribute to the global cartographic community at ICC 2023. Their dedication and insights are sure to make a significant impact.
