The University of Redlands School of Business continues its GIS-focused Speaker Series

Dr. Hal T. Nelson will be discussing sustainable energy modeling programs for infrastructure siting decision-making

The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend

REDLANDS, Oct. 30, 2013 – The University of Redlands Center for Business GIS and Spatial Analysis (GISAB) will continue its speakers series with Dr. Hal T. Nelson on Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013 from 6:15-8 p.m. in the Casa Loma Room of the University of Redlands. This event is part of the GIS Day celebrations taking place at the University of Redlands.

This event will feature a talk by Dr. Hal T. Nelson, where he will explore the topic of: “Getting to Yes? The Sustainable Energy Modeling Program: A Decision Support System for Infrastructure Siting.” Nelson will explain the results of the Sustainable Energy Modeling Program, a decision support system for infrastructure siting. The model fuses geographical information system data, an agent-based model of citizen attitude and behavior diffusion with spatial bargaining models of stakeholder and regulatory decision making to simulate the complexity of infrastructure siting.

Hal T. Nelson (Ph.D., CFA) is Research Assistant Professor in the Division of Politics and Economics at Claremont Graduate University. His research interests focus on stakeholder participation and facilitation, simulation modeling and economic analysis. His research simulates citizen and stakeholder opposition to new infrastructure projects in the built environment using GIS and agent based modeling. Dr. Nelson has publications in The Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Land Use Policy, Ecology and Society, Energy Policy, The Journal of Policy Studies, The Journal of Environment and Development, The Journal of Public Affairs Education, The Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, and Climate Policy.
