ISCONTOUR was founded in 2013 by the two professors Christian Maurer (IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems) and Roman Egger (Salzburg University of Applied Sciences) in order to provide a platform where students and graduates of Bachelor and Master degree programmes can submit and present to the public their tourism-related research papers based on their approved BA- or MA-theses. ISCONTOUR, which takes place alternately at the venues of Salzburg UAS and IMC UAS Krems, aims to establish a platform of knowledge transfer and networking for students, graduates, professors, researchers and practitioners working in the tourism industry.
The targeted audiences include international students, graduates, teachers and lecturers from the field of tourism and leisure management as well as companies and anyone interested in the conference topic areas.
