Space-time (or data that vary across both space and time) are widely used in observational research in political science, yet many questions remain on how to appropriately or best analyze these data. Most research simply uses strategies designed for cross-sections of data, extended to accommodate time, or time-series of data, extended to accommodate space, without taking seriously the possibilities and challenges unique to space-time data itself. For this conference we will bring together a broad group of scholars who are conducting cutting edge research on modeling politics across time, space, and space-time who might not regularly interact with each other for an open exchange of ideas. Invited scholars will present work in progress, receive feedback from conference participants, and then submit their papers for review for a special edition of Political Science Research and Methods.
