Academic Programme

State of the Map 2019 is taking place from 21 to 23 September 2019 in Heidelberg, Germany. We have created an exciting program for you. On this page, we present the programme of the Academic Track taking place on Sunday, 22 September. The call for abstracts of the academic track which lead to this selection of talks can be found here and the conference proceedings including all the accepted abstracts can be found here.

If you want to use an app to get reminder for talks in the schedule, you can use Giggity. Alternatively, you can get the whole schedule as calendar file.

The programme of the general track on all three days can be found on a separate page.
