ISCONTOUR, which takes place alternately at the venues of Salzburg UAS and IMC UAS Krems, aims to establish aplatform of knowledge transfer and networking for students, graduates, professors, researchers and practitioners working in the tourism industry.

The conference aims to offer students and graduates a unique platform to present their research and to establish a mutual knowledge transfer and networking forum for attendees from academia, industry, government and other organisations.
