Siegen welcomes Geomedia!


Geomedia 2021 will take place east of Cologne in downtown Siegen, a lovely, off-the-beaten path industrial hub with a thriving university of over 20,000 students. The conference is hosted by the Graduate School Locating Media and the CRC Media of Cooperation at the Department of Media Research, University of Siegen. It is organized in collaboration with the Geomedia Group at Karlstad University.

We are closely monitoring the pandemic development and will plan accordingly. The final decision whether a hybrid conference can be held safely in Siegen will be made in January. Should the recent surge in cases continue, Geomedia2021 will go fully digital as to not endanger our participants.  We will inform you of the final format via this website and the letters of acceptance.
