What is GeoMundus?

GeoMundus is a free international symposium organised by the students from the Erasmus Mundus Master's of Science in Geospatial Technologies. The conference aims to share cutting-edge scientific research, knowledge, and skills in the fields of Geospatial Technologies, Geoinformatics, and Geosciences, including but not limited to geographic information systems and sciences, spatial cognition, geography, and spatial data sciences. This year’s GeoMundus will also explore the use of Artificial Intelligence in these fields, highlighting the research that pushes the boundaries of geospatial analysis through machine learning, with specific keynote, workshop, and presentations. Please see Programme Section for the more detail information.

Why GeoMundus?

GeoMundus is an opportunity to learn about and share scientific research, knowledge and skills with other students and researchers of all things ‘Geo’. This year’s focus on Artificial Intelligence in Geoinformatics will give participants a chance to learn about some of the most cutting-edge research activities and applications of geospatial technologies in today’s world. GeoMundus is unique, featuring workshops where participants can experience first-hand the future of the field as well as a career session specially designed for students interested in a geospatial career.

Who should participate in GeoMundus 2018?

Everyone who is curious about geospatial technologies and their applications. We especially welcome students, researchers, industry leaders, and interested members of the public. It is not only a great opportunity to learn, but also to network with the brightest minds in this exciting field.

Registration is free, so sign up from June 1st onwards!
