Mr Vockner successfully presented his innovative work on adding recommender features to geoportals to his PhD committee at Z_GIS. Prof Bartelme (TU Graz) and Prof Car (GUTech Muscat) as discussants confronted the candidate with numerous questions and comments, leading a high level discussion about recent and future developments leading towards 'smarter' and more context aware geoportals.
