The Doctoral College GIScience successfully organized a symposium at the University of Salzburg’s outstanding Edmundsburg premises. This two-day symposium offered insights to research projects, achievements and intermediate results of Doctoral candidates. Several world leading scientists in GIScience including David Mark, Paul Longley, Stephan Winter, Laxmi Ramasubramanian as well as a dozen external supervisors provided stimulus and feedback to the PhD candidates in a creative atmosphere.
This exchange of ideas and experiences between early stage researchers and experienced researchers is at the core of the Doctoral College programme hosted by the Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS.
The three thematic research clusters presented achievements regarding methods and methodologies which are crosscutting individual projects and received critical feedback. PhD students presented their work within an interactive poster-session including a best-poster award. All presented posters at our symposium you can find at: http://giscience-symposium.blogspot.com/
