16 December 2022, online event
The working group ‘Geoinformatics – Methods’ of the German Society for Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation (DGPF) will hold its sixth doctoral colloquium on 16 December 2022. The colloquium aims to stimulate and promote peer-to-peer exchange between methodologically oriented young researchers in the interdisciplinary field of geoinformatics. Doctoral students from the fields of geoinformatics, geodesy, photogrammetry, computer science, cartography, geography, remote sensing, spatial cognition, and other related fields dealing with the processing of geographical information are warmly invited to join us online.
The colloquium has no set themes. Instead, we would like to open an opportunity for doctoral students to present their ongoing or planned research for discussion in a casual setting and away from the well-trodden paths of everyday institute life. In this way, participants can gain new perspectives on their ideas and, moreover, network with other young researchers. We also plan to offer brief inputs from experienced academics on topics related to publishing, career planning, and other useful subjects related to academic life. We look forward to interesting discussions!
Contributions must be prepared in adherence to the following guidelines:
- We invite submission of 1-page abstracts of 200–300 words (the use of the template provided online is compulsory). Successful candidates will be invited to present their work orally, whereby acceptance will be decided on the basis of positive evaluation by the organisers.
- Accepted abstracts will be presented in presentations followed by sufficient time for discussion and exchange.
- We encourage presenters to address open problems they are currently facing or ongoing research projects, rather than results already published.
- The language of the colloquium is English.
- No admission fees apply.
All contributions should be submitted via Easychair by 25 November 2022 latest: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=gimethods22.

Location & approach
The campus of TU Dortmund University is located close to interstate junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dortmund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dortmund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the university are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dortmund.
To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.
TU Dortmund University has its own train station ("Dortmund Universität"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dortmund main station ("Dortmund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The university is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.
You can also take the bus or subway train from Dortmund city to the university: From Dortmund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dortmund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dortmund main station to the stop "Dortmund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dortmund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dortmund Universität S".
The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dortmund Universität S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the university directly with the city of Dortmund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.
