On August 8, 2013, I gave another presentation at this year’s IGU Regional Conference in Kyoto. There, I spoke about my ongoing research about the use of spatial methodologies in the analysis of vulnerability in highly urbanized areas. The slide deck below also contains a case study about terrorism vulnerability in Tokyo, Japan.

Have a look at the preliminary program posted on the AAG website to get an idea of the breadth of topics covered.
Upcoming Event: 5th Annual Meeting of the Japan Association on Geographical Space (JAGS)
I am very pleased to announce that I will be presenting about my ongoing research about Spatial Terrorism Vulnerability Analysis at the 5th Annual Meeting of the Japan Association on Geographical Space (JAGS) on Saturday, June 30th 2012. The conference will be held at the Tōkyō Campus of Tsukuba University. The location is Ōtsuka 3-29-1, Bunkyo, Tōkyō (東京都文京区大塚3-29-1).

Wrap-up: 2012 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG)
From February 24th to 28th the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers (AAG) was held in New York City, NY. Due to the large number of participants (~8,600) and sessions offered (~3,500) the conference was held in both the Hilton New York and the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. The conference ended more than one month ago, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to write down my comments about it earlier.
I have been trying to attend as many sessions as possible, and after detailed preparation have been able to attend a session in every time slot offered, except during the two field trips I participated in. Furthermore, I presented my own research in one session.
This is a summary of the sessions I attended and the most interesting papers and topics covered there. (The numbers in brackets refer to the session IDs in the conference program.)
