Dr. Alan M. MacEachren, (PI for the Penn State project team) will give an invited presentation at the CDC Cancer Conference in Atlanta on Sept. 15, 2003, entitled "New Visualization Tools for Exploring Cancer Databases".

Diansheng Guo recently finished his dissertation--Human-Machine Collaboration for Geographic Knowledge Discovery with High-Dimensional Clustering--and has accepted a post-doctoral position with the GeoVISTA Center, where he will be working on the dgQG and NCI Geovisualization and Spatial Analysis of Cancer Data projects. The goal of his dissertation research is to develop a geographic knowledge discovery environment and an integrated suite of efficient and effective data mining techniques for exploring novel, complex spatial patterns in large and high-dimensional geographic datasets. As the first step, the dissertation work focuses on interactive, hierarchical, multivariate spatial clustering.

Frank Hardisty, a research assistant on the dgQG project from 2000 to 2003, has accepted a position as an Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of South Carolina. He began his new career there in fall, 2003.
