PhD Colloquium


The 2016 GEOBIA conference will be enriched by a 1½ day international Doctoral Colloquium, jointly organized with Z_GIS (University of Salzburg, Austria).The purpose of the Colloquium is to help doctoral students interested or working in the field of GEOBIA develop an effective research and career plan in this domain. The focus of the colloquium will be on discussions and mentoring, as well as sessions to find together adequate solutions to specific OBIA problems posed by the participants. We are pleased to confirm Dr. Andrea Baraldi ( as contributor to the colloquium, who will join senior OBIA researchers from Z_GIS and ITC. Participation in the colloquium is free of charge, and lunch and refreshments are included. However, participants wishing also to participate in the GEOBIA conference must register (see Conference Registration; a student rate is available). We also ask interested Phds or postdocs to provide a short CV and motivation letter that includes details about their current research, and specific interest in OBIA.
