CASA has presented an award for best paper on spatial analysis annually at GISRUK since 2010 in memory of Sinesio Alves Junior. The winner of the award in 2023 was Jonathan Olsen.
Congratulations to Jonathan Olsen who became the 2023 recipient of the CASA's Best Paper in Spatial Analysis award at this year's annual GISRUK conference which was held at Glasgow University. His winning paper was entitled "Children's Time Spent Spent Living Locally. Socio-economic variation in spatial access to local facilities and the 20 minute neighbourhood".
It's our great pleasure to present this award annually at GISRUK in memory of Sinesio Alves Junior.
Junior made a big impact on everyone he met due to his friendly and cheerful nature. He had a great sense of humour and was always smiling and we miss him very much.
