UNIGIS at Geoinformatik 2011

For the third time UNIGIS presents its distance-learning programs at the 'Geoinformatik', a symposium on GIS with a small trade fair, hosted by the University of Münster (Germany) this year. The UNIGIS-booth serves as meeting point for UNIGIS-Alumni, active participants and interested (future) students. As a novelty we share our booth with the research studio iSPACE in order to emphasize the strong integration of UNIGIS in a vital network of research and industrial application.
For those who haven’t made it to Münster the next opportunity to get in touch with UNIGIS lies straight ahead: visit us at GI-Forum and AGIT, July 5-8 in Salzburg.

UNIGIS Academic Excellence Prize 2011

The UNIGIS International Association is pleased to announce the next 'UNIGIS International Academic Excellence Prize' competition. The Academic Excellence Prize, launched by UIA in 2007/08, is awarded on an annual basis to a student, from one of the UNIGIS Centers Worldwide, who produces the most outstanding MSc Dissertation/Thesis or paper during the academic year.

All UNIGIS centers are encouraged to take part in the competition. Centres are reminded that they can only enter two students in any one year.

The criteria used to evaluate the theses include: technical quality, quality of literature review, relevance, presentation and originality. The standard of the work submitted last year was very high and UIA expect the same high standards this time.

The competition for the 2011 Prize is now open. Candidates must submit their MSc thesis or their paper to the graduating UIA partner institution no later than August 31.
