8th International Student and Early Career Conference NEW WAVE (call for papers)

Last year I had the opportunity to participate in the International Student and Early Career Conference NEW WAVE in Prague and I really enjoyed the conference (you can read my last year’s notes), therefore I have decided to share the open call for papers with you. Although last year there were not much participatory GIS papers I believe it may be interesting for some PhD candidates or young scholars among you.

Traditionally, the NEW WAVE conference draws graduate and post-graduate students, as well as young professionals from the fields of Physical and Social Geography, Cartography, Demography, Sociology, Urban Planning and related disciplines to share and discuss their research in a friendly and open-minded atmosphere with a multidisciplinary audience.

Please have a look at the call for papers for the 8th International Student and Early Career Conference NEW WAVE, which will take place on 19th – 20th May, 2016 in Prague, Czechia.
