Session Abstract

Unconference & Youth Forum: Pathways to Digital Earth

July, 10, 2020, 9:00 – 12:30 CET

For the first time, Unconference is coming to GI_Week 2020!

This event is unlike any other, as it is shaped completely by its attendees and their needs. Based on the concept of OpenSpace Technology introduced by Harrison Owen, this Unconference allows attendees to define the agenda and host their own sessions in an environment of fierce creativity, engagement and collaboration.

Z_GIS and the University of Salzburg are honoured to host ISDE12 in July 2021. Scheduled during our annual ‚GI-Week‘, this special event will bring together policy makers and scientists and will explore pathways towards the vision of a ‘Digital Earth’. We see the Unconference as a pre-event of ISDE12 and welcome thoughts, ideas and topics – especially interesting for our younger generations – to be discussed at the Unconference and various other pre-events, and to be included in the programme of ISDE12 next year.
