The UrbanMetaMapping Research Consortium warmly invites applications from scholars interested in presenting their research at our online, midday academic seminar. We are open for projects dealing with mapping man-made and natural catastrophes, issues of heritage and urban planning in the context of such disasters, as well as digital tools used for researching these themes. We are interested in research projects without any geographical and temporal limitations. The call for application is open to all scholars (from PhD students upwards). The language of the seminar is English. Further information, includingprograms and abstracts of previous Talks can be found at our website.



Meetings take place every first Wednesday of each month at 1100 am – 1200 pm (Central European (Summer) Time (CET/CEST)). They will last for an hour (including Q&A) and will provide an exciting platform to discuss with international scholars their research and exchange ideas.
