Travel Tech

This year, IFITT will have their first IFITT Doctoral Summer School at Bournemouth University, UK from July 8th-9th 2013. Hosted by the eTourism Lab at Bournemouth University, this first edition of the IFITT Summer Doctoral Summer School aims to bring together the future eTourism researchers for a two-day unconventional workshop on a variety of cutting edge eTourism topics. This opportunity for researchers to meet up, share their ideas and discuss latest research on e-tourism is very interesting and can only be recommended to all researchers (IFITT).

Why should you go?

The IFITT Doctoral Summer School provides all participants a unique platform for knowledge and idea exchange in the field of Travel and Tourism technologies and a great opportunity to network with early career researchers and speakers from across the globe. The Summer School will provide inspirational and practical insights on the current and future technological trends. Early-career researchers will familiarise with various research methodologies and will be introduced to the world of academic journal editors. Parallel sessions will help in sharing and discussing research ideas, and will provide participants with valuable and topic-specific feedback on their research.
