Ninth Crime Mapping Research Conference coming the end of March
December 5th, 2006 by JTJ

It was the second year of the national crime mapping conference when we realized that, hey, there's a lot of not-just-good-but-great analytic work going in the then-young profession of crime analysis.  Seven years later, it's just getting more impressive. 

If you can only get to one national conference a year (we assume you're already going to the NICAR meetings), do this one every other year and the Special Libraries Association convention on the off year.  NOTE: NO NO NO registration fee!

Registration for the Ninth Crime Mapping Research Conference has openedThis year, there will be no conference
registration fees but registration is still required.
  Preliminary conference details available on the
MAPS website:

Ninth Crime Mapping Research Conference will take place March 28-31, 2007 at the
Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


The conference will include a full
compliment of
workshops, panels and plenary sessions. The main plenary session is entitled GPS in a Crime Analysis Context-
Practitioner Consideration, Research Needs.”

offender travel behavior, NIBRS/incident-based data and mapping, international
programs, impact of Hurricane Katrina on crime, crime analysis, spatial data

excellent opportunity for researches and practitioners to network with each
