San Diego State University, San Diego. August 1-3, 2012

The spread of ideas in the age of the Internet is a double-edged sword; it can enhance our collective welfare as well as produce forces that can destabilize the world. This specialist meeting aims at understanding the dynamic process by which the impact of a single event or idea disperses throughout the world over time and space. Dramatic events, especially when reported through the new media of cyberspace, have the potential to transform ideas into realities, in ways that can either inform or inflame the public passions. It is possible there are geographic and chronological patterns that coincide to reveal the nature of significant events and the ways in which information about these events is consumed and used by those engaged with such media. This specialist meeting (workshop) is funded by an NSF-CDI project (#1028177, Mapping Cyberspace to Realspace: Visualizing and Understanding the Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Global Diffusion of Ideas and the Spatial Web,http://mappingideas.sdsu.edu/). The goal of this workshop is to foster the multidisciplinary collaboration in related research disciplines, including geography, linguistics, computer science, political science, and communication.
