What is GeoMundus?

GeoMundus is an international symposium held by the students from the Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Geospatial Technologies. The symposium features broad aspects of geospatial technologies disciplines, including but not limited to, geographic information systems and science, earth and environmental studies and management, urban planning. The focus of this year’s GeoMundus is in the emerging technologies within these fields and our programme highlights the cutting edge research that pushes the boundaries of geospatial analysis. This year, the GeoMundus Conference will be held in Münster - Germany from 10th to 11th November.

Why GeoMundus?

It is an opportunity to learn and share scientific research, knowledge and skills with other peers in all things ‘Geo’. The emerging technologies featured in GeoMundus 2017 is also an opportunity to learn about them and their applications in our everyday lives. GeoMundus is also unique as it features workshops where participants can experience first-hand the future of geospatial technologies as well as a career session specially designed for students interested in a geospatial career.

Who should participate in GeoMundus 2017?

Everyone who is curious about geospatial technologies and its applications. We especially welcome students, researchers, industry players, and even members of the public. It is not only a great opportunity to learn, but also to network amongst the brightest minds in this exciting field.
Most of all, registration is free so sign up now!


Speakers information will be available soon!
