PiriReis Project announces the first Annual Turkish Association of Geographers conference Call for participation
PIRI REIS, aims to:
1) provide training for geography academics in the areas where they lack skills and knowledge. The training will include a seminar that will focus on analysis programs such as SPSS and GIS, referencing programs such as EndNote.
2) PIRI REIS will also organize workshops for developing a sample curriculum for VET for professional geographers.
3) It will establish a geographical association for networking among geographers and the association will continue to work with EUROGEO for internationalization purposes.
4) A journal will be formed to create a platform for the presentation of research and collaboration.
The project is expected to start on 1st January 2012 and will last for three years. More details will be provided here once the project commences.
