Laboratory Events and ActivitiesThe Laboratory for Location Science supports academic and scholarly activities for our team and our community:
Students Meet with Governor
Student interns Jin Lee and Pat Guillen-Piazza met Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe today when they accompanied faculty member Kevin M. Curtin (the Director of the Laboratory for Location Science) and Associate Director and Affiliate Faculty member Alec D. Barker to the VIRTUES II conference today. The VIRTUES conferences have been sponsored by the 4VA program funded by the Commonwealth of Virginia to encourage strategic coordination between industry and academia in the area of unmanned aerial vehicles and systems. The Center for Location Science has been funded by the Office of Naval Research to develop models for optimizing autonomous vehicle logistics for large-scale naval operations. Lee and Guillen-Piazza are critical research team members engaged in data collection efforts for unmanned systems and logistics supply specifications.
Montello Guest Lecture
On Monday, January 30, 2017, the Laboratory for Location Science welcomed Dr. Daniel R. Montello for a guest lecture at George Mason University's Fairfax campus. Dr. Montello is Professor of Geography at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is a Psychologist and Geographer who has been working in the broad area of spatial cognition for decades.
Dr. Curtin Presents at VIRTUES
Dr. Kevin Curtin, Director of the Laboratory for Location Science at George Mason University, was invited to speak at the Virginia Robotics and Unmanned Systems Education Summit (VIRTUES) conference held at James Madison University at Harrisonburg Virginia on 17-18 August 2016. VIRTUES is a Commonwealth-wide initiative, led by the 4-VA partnership, that is fostering the development of research, curriculum, and entrepreneurship centered on unmanned systems. Dr. Curtin offered a presentation about the Center's ongoing research involving optimization of logistics enterprises that rely on unmanned and autonomous cargo systems.
