Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analysis
Stream Leader: Dr. George S. Tsagaris, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Cleveland State University, USA.
The purpose of this stream is to bring together researchers who have applied Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analysis in multiple disciplines and to further explore GIS applications. ‘Geographic Information Systems’ has been acknowledged as a preferable tool for geospatial professionals. The definition of GIS is broad having a range of potential applications intersecting multiple disciplines. Numerous articles have been written applying GIS applications in multiple ways which includes environmental studies, medicine, urban planning, civil engineering, resource management and planning activities, emergency planning, real estate and land management, tourism and hospitality, archeology, library utilization, landscaping, business and marketing, special planning, agriculture, emergency planning, public health, transportation, crime prevention, socio-economic studies, community empowerment, and in many more areas.

Human Labour and Sex Trafficking
Stream Leader: Dr. George S. Tsagaris, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Cleveland State University, USA.
The purpose of this stream is to bring together researchers who have conducted studies on human labour and sex trafficking. Human trafficking is a global issue and involves individuals across many geographic regions throughout the world. Human trafficking as an historical event has existed in ancient history and is viewed today as “a modern-day version of slavery.” The victims of human trafficking include individuals of all ages – women, children and men. It is proposed that this stream address the global geographic implications of human labour and sex trafficking from a macro perspective including the socio-economic, environmental, economic, and geographic implications. The primary invitees would be researchers who have studied the socio-cultural, psychological, and geographical implications of human trafficking both historically including ancient history and modern-day implications. This stream will further explore the multiple disciplines and topical areas which may include a global as well as an historical perspectives (past and present), business and economics, socio-political and cultural issues across geographic boundaries. In addition to the researchers as invitees, there are well-known coalitions and initiatives addressing this global issue.

Agroecosystems Assessment Using Spatial Analysis Techniques
Stream Leader: Dr. Hossein Kazemi, Associate Professor, Gorgan University of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (GUASNR), Iran.
Agroecosystems are natural ecosystems that have been modified for the production of food and fiber. An agroecosystem is the fundamental unit of study in agroecology and defined as a spatially and functionally coherent unit of agricultural activities, and includes the living and non-living components and their interactions. Today, agroecosystems face many problems, including biodiversity loss, excessive dependence on fossil fuels and external inputs such as pesticides and chemical fertilizers, environmental pollutions, degrading the soil and water resources and invasive species etc. Much of modern agroecosystems has lost the balance needed for long-term sustainability. To solve these problems and environmental resources protection, spatial analysis techniques, as the main analytical tool of geosciences, based on data field can be useful. Thus, this conference introduces and proposes of techniques of spatial analysis by geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing (RS) tools to achieve sustainability in the agroecosystems. It, also provides a interdisciplinary platform for researchers to present and discuss the recent innovations, trends, and concerns in the field of agroecosystems assessment. “The International Conference on Agroecosystems Assessment Using Spatial Analysis Techniques” will bring together academic scientists, researchers and research scholars from all professions and applications that deal with the use of spatial analysis techniques in agroecosystems assessment.
