Senior Bachelor and Master’s degree students in Tourism, Creative and Cultural Industries and Place Management are invited to take part in the Symposium "Sustainable Tourism and Development" within the framework of the II Annual International Student Research Conference.
Many factors including technology and communications, big data, and tourism analytics have reshaped the nature of tourism research including what are the research questions and how we ask them. Many different factors are causing us to re-think the future of tourism and place development, as well as the research strategies.

Contributions based on case studies, new methodologies, innovative solutions, new data will be considered favorably. Quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods and experimental submissions are equally encouraged.
