Call for Papers

Due to the pandemic situation we had to postpone the fifth Geography Workshop Austria on a very short notice. NEW DATE: 20.9. – 21.9.2022.
The Association of Austrian Academic Geography (Geography Association) is organising the fifth Geography Workshop Austria. This biannual event is intended as a format for young re- searchers and is therefore aimed in particular at geographers in the qualification phase (PhD candidates and PostDoc’s), but also invites all senior researchers and research-oriented stu- dents to participate and contribute. The focus is on the discourse of grand challenges within current geographical research topics, which will also be addressed in several keynote lectures of newly appointed professors from the Geography departments of Austrian universities. Dissertation and post-doctoral projects will be introduced via flash talks and presented in a poster session. In complementary workshops, questions of research practice and funding options will be discussed focusing on the requirements of young scientists in Geography.

We are particularly pleased that Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christof GATTRINGER, President of the FWF, as well as the former Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research Univ.-Prof. Dr. Heinz FASSMANN will participate in a moderated panel discussion on research opportunities in Austria.

The submission of abstracts (preferably in English; incl. title, author name(s) and short sum- mary, all max. 1 page) is open until 1st of June 2022. Please submit your Abstract HERE.
The registration deadline and the availability of the final programme is 30th of June 2022. Most recent details are provided here:
