ISCONTOUR was founded in 2013 by Christian Maurer (IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems) and Roman Egger (Salzburg University of Applied Sciences). The goal of ISCONTOUR is to provide a platform where international students and graduates of Bachelor, Master and PhD Degree programmes can present their tourism-related research papers based on approved seminar works or theses.

ISCONTOUR is a unique two-day conference to actively exchange, challenge and share state-of-the art tourism research and case studies. More than 200 students, graduates, professors and practitioners from more than 30 countries participated in the last ISCONTOUR. An entertaining social evening programme provides opportunities for making new friends and extending ones network.

The target audiences include students, graduates, teachers and lecturers from the field of tourism and leisure management as well as practitioners and anyone interested in the conference topic areas.

Research papers are invited from the widest spectrum of the below mentioned topics by students and graduates of Bachelor-, Master and Doctoral Degree programmes. Submitted papers must be 12 pages long and based on approved Bachelor- or Master-Theses which were submitted between 2015 and 2017.

  • Marketing and Management
  • Tourism Product Development & Sustainability
  • Information and Communication Technologies
  • Financing and Budgeting
  • Human Resource Management

All submitted papers will be double-blind peer reviewed by an international Scientific Committee. Accepted papers have to be presented at the conference by the author(s)and will be included in the printed conference proceedings. The conference fees are waived for authors who present at ISCONTOUR.
