Welcome to S3C

The Spatial Cognition, Computation, and Complexity Laboratory is located in the Department of Geography at the University of Oregon. The S3C Lab is a place of research and teaching focused on the use of computational and experimental methods for investigating human interactions, behavior, and decision-making with and within natural and built environments. Faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students participate in collaborative research projects aimed at understanding these complex geographic phenomena through cutting-edge scientific methods that include emergent geospatial technologies, computational modeling, and neuroimaging. The S3C Lab also hosts workshops on the use of geospatial technologies, complexity, and computational models for understanding our world.
