About the conference

The GeoMundus Conference is a free international conference organized by students of the Erasmus Mundus MSc program in Geospatial Technologies. Since 2009, GeoMundus has been hosted annually- alternating between the program’s organizing universities, NOVA IMS (Lisbon, Portugal), WWU (Münster, Germany) and UJI (Castellón de la Plana, Spain). 2022 will be the 14th edition of the conference. Since 2020, the conference has featured online streaming- allowing you to participate wherever you may be!

The conference is unique because it is organized by students for students. However, researchers, professionals, and members of the general public are all invited and welcome. Anyone who is curious about geospatial technologies and their applications can participate in this conference! It’s a fantastic opportunity to engage with this exciting and fast-growing field and to network with those at the cutting edge.

This year’s additional twist: As students and members of the geospatial community, we want to engage participants in critical reflection about the goals and motivations of geospatial innovation. Thus, we present this year’s theme GI & AI: It’s a match! to critically discuss the ever-growing importance of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence for processing and analyzing Big Data in the geographic realm.

Past sponsors have included ESRI, Conterra, and AGILE. Past keynotes have included illustrious names from the Geospatial and GIS space such as Dr. Michael Goodchild, John Nelson, and Dr. Werner Kuhn. Activities in this year’s conference will include career-development workshops, product demonstrations, a paper contest, Mapathon, and networking events.

This year’s twist

Previous editions have not had a particular thematic focus. However, since 2020 edition, we wanted to spice up discussions with a guiding theme. As students and members of the geospatial community, we want to engage participants in critical reflection about the goals and motivations of geospatial innovation.

This year, we will focus on Artificial Intelligence under the theme GI & AI: It’s a match!. Nevertheless, the conference won't focus exclueivelly on AI-related themes, but it will also include more broad discussion and presentations on other relevant topics on GIS.
