The UrbanMetaMapping Research Consortium warmly invites you to our online, midday academic talks on issues connected to our research interests on mapping man-made and natural catastrophes, heritage, urban planning, and digital tools used for researching these.
Meetings take place every third Wednesday of each month at noon (Central European (Summer) Time (CET/CEST)) starting on the 15th September 2021. 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. If interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive access to our Zoom meeting room. We look forward to you joining us for the UrbanMetaMapping Seminar Series!
